Inspirerende Yoga Quotes

Yoga Quotes

Yoga handler dypest sett om å transendere sinnets begrensninger. For så lenge vi styres av sinnet, styres vi av fortiden. Sinnet er ikke annet enn akkumulering av levd liv som vi er dømt til å gjenta på nytt og på nytt', inntil vi er i stand til å mestre det. Menneskets 'separasjon' fra et Yogisk perspektiv handler kun om sinnets bindinger. Transcenderes sinnet fullstendig, transcenderes også tid og rom - dualistisk bevissthet; motsetninger, konkurranse, cravings and aversions, motstand, konflikt, meg og deg, her og der, lys og mørke osv. 

I tradisjonell og akademisk sammenheng, betyr klassisk yoga, Patanjali Yoga. I Sutraene (eight limbs of yoga), beskrives konkret hva yogaens høyeste praksis Samadhi innebærer. Etter min mening, beskrives også den opplyste bevissthetens kvaliteter. Her er noen inspirerende quotes hentet fra kjente og mindre kjente Yogis / Yogiske skrifter :

 

Yoga is the journey of the self, to the self, through the self.

~ Bhagavad Gita

Yoga is not just repetition of few postures – it is more about the exploration and discovery of the subtle energies of life. ~ Amit Ray

So to meditate is to purge the mind of itself-centered activity. And if you have come this far in meditation, you will find there is silence, a total emptiness. The mind is uncontaminated by society; it is no longer subject to any influence, to the pressure of any desire. It is completely alone, and being alone, untouched, it is innocent. Therefore there is a possibility for that which is timeless and eternal to come into being. This whole process is meditation. 

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
 

You cannot do Yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do, is yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.

 Meditation (Yoga union) is not the pursuit of pleasure, and the search for happiness. Meditation on the contrary, is a state of mind in which there is no consept or formula, and therefore total freedom. It is only to such a mind that this Bliss comes unsought and uninvited. 

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

To understand the whole operation of one's mind requires a great deal of insight, a great deal of inquiry without condemnation. The mind can only gather, accumulate, deny, assert, remember, pursue. Peace is absolutely essential, because without peace we cannot live creatively (in the flow of the present moment).

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
