"The soul cannot be confined within man-made boundaries. It's nationality is spirit; it's country is omnipresence"-Paramhansa Yogananda
Happy post July 4th weekend! This coming Wed we will explore an often overlooked yet essential yogic topic: how awareness of other people's realities is essential to knowing the One reality (or heart) within all.
The yoga master Yogananda once said "If you want to be loved, start loving others who need your love...
If you want to be respected, you must learn to be respectful of others young and old."
I have found in my own experience that becoming more aware of others is truly a very real "way out" from my own all too human worries- and has also allowed me to live a richer and more adventurous life too. Saints and sages of the ages are unanimous; from the Buddha to St. Francis to Gandhi, that connectedness comes from an open heart and uncaring/indifference leads to separation and ultimately suffering.
On a bright note, we have a very caring, relaxed, and non-dogmatic group of souls who regularly attend- and it's a great support in the mid week to have this little haven of peace to come to.
Hope to see you this Wed!
