We have heard the saying "You must be the change you wish to see in the world" ~ Gandhi. We have heard that what we focus on, we create, Where attention goes, attention flows, We are our thoughts, and they all relate to the concept of Yoga being the cessation of the mind.
As found in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras:
yogash chitta vritti nirodhah ||2||
When you are in a state of yoga, all misconceptions (vrittis) that can exist in the mutable aspect of human beings (chitta) disappear. ||2||
For today's meditation tip we are meditating on LOVE. Whether it is romantic love, or universal Love, this world needs more of it, and therefore individuals need more love. For today, sit in silence, and stillness and breathe in LOVE, breathe out LOVE. Imagine rays of love are shinning from your heart, to your loved ones, your surroundings, your friends, your Guru/Teachers, your city, your country, your world. Let all beings on this planet feel your love. For a added bonus, send this LOVE to those who have hurt you, those you may need to forgive, those who challenge your ability to love, this action will liberate you from the thought of unforgiveness and bring you closer to freedom. We are all created from LOVE, and when we give more attention to LOVE it brings divine healing into our path.
