The Core of Yoga

The path to truth and happiness

There is no absolute scientific certain, no proven origin or reason for mankind in this world. There is no proof of creation, there is no proof of evolution; there are many maybes and yet we know we have this potential and yet were are caught up in suffering when we have the potential to be happy….

But the fact that you wake up every morning is proof that you are alive and depending on the combination of your actions and circumstances, you are either happy or unhappy. For the happy, yoga is a celebration of life and for the unhappy, yoga is a journey to create an enduring happiness.

We all experience moments of

Isha Kriya

An inward knowing

Meditation can be done in any comfortable position, you don’t have to sit like this.

Meditation is practised in all spiritual traditions and it sometimes occurs naturally making a pleasant space in our day. But to become more conscious and responsible, we need to make a regular effort and practise. It’s often said that practise make perfect, well here meditation practise at some stage becomes an involvement and not just a practise. It becomes real and has measurable benefits in terms of health improvement and happiness.

Results are determined by a combination of practise, tenacity and an ability to relax and even these attributes improve in time. Typically we may begin trying to meditate, we begin

Longevity

Do you want to Live Longer?

I have written previously on the philosophy of longevity, but here I write about the practical and necessary steps to follow for a longer life. These steps require that you take a degree of self responsibility and decide for yourself how your life is going to play out rather than let it be shaped by others. If you are able to become responsible for yourself and determine your own actions, you will in fact be the boss of your own life with some control as to the how and when of ending.

All living things in this existence must come to an end and for some humans they barely

Understanding Humanities Problems

What are our most pressing concerns?

This page is part of a submission to a global forum established to help reform global governance and an alternative to the current model that is clearly failing. This is less about political systems, it’s more about embracing our humanity and making civilisation sustainable based on our available resources and our real instead of imaginary human needs.

Understanding our problems

It is evident that the complete failure of human civilisation and the extinction of our species is an imminent possibility. The real question is, do we have the will and the guts to pull ourselves back from this precipice we have created for ourselves? For certain we have the capacity

Super Brain Yoga

Yoga Asana Series

A tool to improve your life

Yoga as we know has been around for many thousands of years but it’s only in the past couple of years that this exercise has come to wider public notice. In fact this idea of super brain yoga is finding its place in classrooms, medical and rehabilitation centres all over the world. It is a practical application to help people with learning difficulties and for those who want to succeed in life.

We often think of our brain as being two hemispheres and that we either use more the left left or the right. What super brain yoga does is harmonise both sides of the brain so that they

Physical Remedies for Depression

A problem of your own creation

Depression first off is something you have created in your own mind and if you feel that some one or some others are responsible for your state of mind, then you must know that you are a slave to that person or others.

The real freedom comes from truly knowing and taking responsibility for yourself, something that’s easier said than done so much so that a guru is often needed to help you sort reality from fantasy.

But here we discuss physical things you can do to relieve depression. Just like our mind can affect our body, our body can affect our mind. Often times, anxiety and tension will build

Parivrtta Trikonasana

Yoga Asana Series

Revolving Triangle Pose

Parivrtta Trikonasana is a powerful dynamic stretch requiring good balance and strong concentration. There is an intense stretch in the legs with an elongation and twist of the torso which releases a lot of energy. The pose also challenges your ability to balance and pay attention to your body.

This pose is achievable by people who from standing, can comfortably fold forwards from the hips keeping their knees straight and resting their hands on the floor. Those who cannot do this will most likely need something to rest their hand on to prevent the flexing of the spine as you can see in the video below.

Classically this pose is taught with the

Facebook Scams

User beware

Some say the world is a very dangerous place and facebook seems like a safe haven, you sign up, connect with friendly people and exchange ideas. It sounds lovely and harmless, however there are criminal gangs, corporations and other nefarious users trolling through all the facebook members searching for opportunities to make a profit.

Some of these scams are phishing schemes trying to obtain your username and password, while others end in surveys and bogus offers to get some of your data. Other lure girls as targets for sexual exploitation and there are some who run blackmail scams. Several have been known to spread viruses and other malware, so it’s important to keep anti-virus software installed and updated.

The Art of Kissing

A process of deepening intimacy

A kiss is the act of pressing of one’s lips against another person or an object most often as a demonstration of acceptance and appreciation or affection, or as a greeting and an act of friendship. Yet the act of kissing varies across different cultures with many different uses and meanings.

While kisses are most often used to express sentiments of love, lust and passion, kisses facilitate deeper intimacy and sexual activity. But in other situations, a kiss is a ritual, formal or symbolic gesture indicating devotion, respect, or sacrament.

The English word kiss came from Old English cyssan (“to kiss”), in turn from coss (“a kiss”). It is widely thought that kissing is an

Eight Steps to Happiness

And a solution to end suffering

Master, what is the secret to happiness?””Not to argue with idiots””Master. I disagree that this can be the secret” “Yes, you are right”

There are many benefits to putting the instructions of Langri Tangpa’s “Eight Verses of Training the Mind” into practice. The practice helps us to eliminate the ignorant mind of self-cherishing and self-grasping, the root of all suffering and problems.

It shows us how to transform adverse conditions into the spiritual path, giving us the opportunity to use our daily problems and issues that would normally be obstacles as our actual daily practice so we can make progress in our spiritual practice.

We live in spiritually degenerate times. Fewer people are
