Yoga

I subscribed to Gaia. I am so happy I did this! Yesterday I watched a series on the Yogic path. It goes into detail about different types of yoga and so much more I am just now starting to understand. I have to say this whole experience is beautiful. Bhakti yoga is the path of devotion/love, Jhana is wisdom and knowledge, Karma is action, Kriya is action/movement….. there is more.  I have to find out if someone practices them all or one or a few. When learning about Bhakti it was said that it is about making more love by putting it out into the world, not just in principle, but also in practice. One of the easiest ways to understand the path and to expand our devotional attitude is to treat others the way we would like to be treated. I have learned about chanting the different names of the Divine. What I really liked is they said if you are Christian, Jewish, Muslim you can chant what you call God. Then I learned about Jappa.

I hope I can find someone that can teach me more. I have always wondered about Hindu and Yoga, this has definitely helped me to understand more. I love learning new things.

Be Nice

As a teacher I always teach my class about being nice, respectful, and be understanding. Of course there is way more that I teach in the character department but the simple ones I mentioned really need to be applied to social media. A friend of mine said she needs a break from social media. I get it, it can be brutal out there! Many people need a time out!! We need to focus on what can we do to make our world a better place. That can come in the form of respecting someone’s opinion especially if it differs from your own. I get now why the Bible says be slow to anger, we need to listen to people and see where they are coming from. Does anyone seriously think that if they shove their opinions down someone’s throat in a mean way that it will get that other person to open their minds or consider their view? So just be nice!
