Have a relaxing Sunday!! Get out and enjoy!!
It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.
Ahh…it’s Saturday. Have a relaxing Day!!
The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.
Sydney J. Harris
what is it when I see you
wondering how I ever could
how I never even though
but even as I see
you cannot see
I watch from a distance
and people say I am nuts
but I wonder just if
if the courage I can build
wondering if you even know
you don’t even see
how I feel
now I wonder if
I should be committed
just for thinking
just for seeing
just for following
but I turn around
before I can give myself away
It’s finally Friday!!! I don’t know about you but I am glad the end of the week is here 🙂
Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.
Ok I know it’s late and I know I really do not have too much progress to share…but guess what…it is what it is. My progress is showing in my other numbers besides my weight. My thyroid levels have improved to the point where my doctor decided to reduce the amount I am taking, my sugar level is the best it has been since before the kids, and my cholesterol is on a steady downhill slide 🙂 So with all this said I can’t complain too bitterly about the fact my weight has not budged. I am determined to look at the whole not just one particular number. I am going to keep going and continue to improve and change me from the inside out.
Here is to a wonderful Thursday!!
The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.
HAPPY SUMMER EVERYONE!!! Have a great Hump Day!!
You can observe a lot by just watching.
Welcome to another installment of Yoga Pose Tuesday. Yes I know it’s been a awhile but I am going to try to get back into the postings. This week is another post with info regarding yoga. I know I promised a pose the next time I was going to post but to be honest life tends to get in the way….lol!! This week I will give a little insight to the different schools of yoga. As I am posting this here, I know there are going to be people who might say there are more, but from what I understand these are the major schools then within these there are different ways. Each will lead you to the same point…it’s all about how you get there.
The four paths of Yoga: There are four traditional schools of Yoga, and these are: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Raja Yoga. While a Yogi or Yogini may focus exclusively on one of these approaches to Yoga, that is quite uncommon. For the vast majority of practitioners of Yoga, a blending of the four traditional types of Yoga is most appropriate. One follows his or her own predisposition in balancing these different forms of Yoga.
Jnana Yoga is the path of knowledge, wisdom, introspection and contemplation. It involves deep exploration of the nature our being by systematically exploring and setting aside false identities.
Bhakti Yoga is the path of devotion, emotion, love, compassion, and service to God and others. All actions are done in the context of remembering the Divine
Karma Yoga is the path of action, service to others, mindfulness, and remembering the levels of our being while fulfilling our actions or karma in the world
Raja Yoga is a comprehensive method that emphasizes meditation, while encompassing the whole of Yoga. It directly deals with the encountering and transcending thoughts of the mind.
Now with all this being said, you will find out as you do yoga which you are more likely to lean toward. You will probably choose one over the other primarily but don’t forget the others as well because they are meant to be part of one another.
While Jnana Yoga deals with knowledge, wisdom, introspection and contemplation, everybody has a mind and at some point will need to examine it, wherein quiet reflection naturally comes.
All people will experience emotions such as love, compassion, and devotion at points along the journey, regardless of which of the four paths of Yoga is predominant
Nobody can live in a body and the world without doing actions. Even a renunciate living in a Himalayan cave has to do some form of actions, and thus, some degree of Karma Yoga is essential
Everybody will become still and quite from sadhana or spiritual practices, will naturally encounter and deal with attractions and aversion, and will meditate, thus touching on Raja Yoga.
However you decide to get your center, enjoy the journey. that is what counts. Namaste
