Yogic Inspiration from Lee Ann: The Fifth Law of Yoga, The Law of Intention & Desire

Everything in the universe consists of energy and information - including you.  When you quiet your mind and introduce your intentions into the field of pure potentiality, you harness the infinite organzing power of the universe to achieve your desires.
"A wave of individuality rises from the unbounded ocean, and for a time, forgets that it is the ocean in disguise.  When the wave begins looking inside, the memory of wholeness is rekindled, and the wave again knows itself as unbounded, infinite, and eternal."
~David Simon
For more than five thousand years, the Vedic masters of India have taught that our essential nature is infinite, whole, and eternal.  We have an innate impulse to grow and create health and fulfillment.  To fully experience these gifts, we need to embrace a holistic understanding of life that considers the whole person - the mind, body, and soul.  Just as the planet's ecosystems are interdependent, the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of our lives are intimately connected.  When one system is out of balance, it affects the functioning of the whole.
From this holistic perspective, health isn't merely the absence of illness or symptoms: it's a higher state of consciousness that allows vitality, well-being, creativity, and joy to flow into our experience.  As we shift into this higher awareness, we see that we aren't our bodies, our possessions, our titles, our circumstances or our relationships.  We're spiritual beings in the eternal unfolding of life, and our natural state is wholeness.
Practice seeing beyond the masks of individuality.  Look into the eyes of the people you encounter today and see the reflections of your soul.
om Love, om Laughter,
Lee Ann
