What is it You Most Desire?

It is the New Year – Happy 2012 to you!

It is customary to reflect back on our lives while creating resolutions, intentions, or goals for ourselves, to make our lives better in the new year.

What is it You Most Desire? Do you want to improve your physique? Do you want to have better relationships? Do you want a more satisfying job? Many of us will set goals of what it is we think we want in our lives. Some of them realistic, and some perhaps more challenging to attain.

I believe we all want to be free from suffering. We want peace, joy, and a sense of connectedness.

This is the basis of Yoga, and is described so beautifully in the book “The Light on Yoga” as an excerpt from the “Bhagavad Gita”:

‘When his mind, intellect and self (ahamkhara) are under control, freed from restless desire, so that they rest in the spirit within, a man becomes a Yukta – one in communion with God. A lamp does not flicker in a place where no wind blows; so it is with a Yogi, who controls his mind, intellect and self, being absorbed in the spirit within him. When the restlessness of the mind, intellect and self is stilled through the practice of Yoga, the yogi by the grace of the Spirit within himself finds fulfillment. Then he knows the joy eternal which is beyond the pale of the senses that his reason cannot grasp. He abides in this reality and moves not therefrom. He has found the treasure above all others. There is nothing higher than this. He who has achieved it, shall not be moved by the greatest sorrow. This is the real meaning of Yoga – a deliverance of contact with pain and sorrow.’

If you feel you would like assistance with creating and reaching your goals for 2012 by releasing pain and suffering, or inviting in more joy and peace, please contact me .
