“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”

~ Helen Keller

Never be limited by your physical senses. They can only inform you of what’s outside of you. Your heart reflects the deepest essence of your experience.

Always be conscious of what’s inside of you. Someday you’ll recognize it as both the alpha and the omega.

“Again and again I tell you what you must gain to be successful, not only in the Yoga but in all of the life. To have worked the little miracles you have already worked in Yoga, you have already gained little bit self-discipline, determination, and concentration, or you would be in same condition you were when you first started class. But what happen to faith and patience? How you can stand there and tell me it is impossible for you to someday do Full Bow like Barbie? You cannot see what you have already achieved?”

Excerpted from the book Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class by Bikram Choudhury

Patience and faith, my friend, are just as important as discipline, concentration, and determination in your mastery of life.

Like a beacon, they’re there to make sure you never lose sight of your dreams.

“Simply put, you believe that things or people make you unhappy, but this is not accurate. You make yourself unhappy.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Well, my friend, it’s not just that you make yourself unhappy, you make yourself happy, too. You see, you choose which thoughts you focus on and the judgments you hold. It’s through these that you make yourself happy or unhappy, or angry, or sad, or scared, or hopeful.

If you don’t like the way you feel, look for a new perspective. Even the most irascible behavior from others will serve you in some way.

You hold the power.

“I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi

To err is human. We are all human and, therefore, there will be moments when we behave in a way that is less than our ideal.

The pure of heart strive always to right a wrong quickly for to do otherwise just prolongs their own suffering.

To them, nothing is worse than being out of alignment with who they are as spirit.

“Focus sharpens the mind and relaxation expands the mind. An expanded mind without sharpness cannot bring holistic development. At the same time, a sharp mind without expansion causes tension, anger and frustration.

“The balance of a focused mind and an expanded consciousness brings perfection…

“Expanded consciousness is peace and joy. Focused consciousness is love and creativity. A point of focused consciousness is individual self. When every atom of the expanded consciousness becomes sharp and focused, that is the awakening of Divinity.”

~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Now do you see why Bikram Yoga is so powerful? Where else do you so effectively both sharpen and expand the mind at the same time? It works the perfect balance between focusing and relaxing and awakens your Divinity. No wonder you feel so good!

Oh, and let’s not forget the way it works and heals the whole body at the same time. Whoa! This could be the truest example of holistic!

Ready for class?

Some of your hurts you have cured,
And the sharpest you still have survived,
But what torments of grief you endured
From the evil which never arrived.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have you discovered yet the connection between the thoughts you think and the emotions you feel? Have you noticed how your emotions reflect your thoughts?

It doesn’t matter whether you’re thinking of the past, present or future, or whether it’s real or imagined, you respond emotionally and that emotional state is real.

Rein in your mind, my friend, and focus it such that you feel good. There’s no sense in suffering any more than necessary.

The Power in Our Words

“Water is sensitive, and it responds to what we say. When we send good hado to water by saying positive words to it, it will show us beautiful crystals. Also, our prayers send out energy and change the quality of the water. By offering prayers to water, we send hado to the water, and such water gains the power to potentially answer our prayers.”

Excerpted from the book The True Power of Water by Masaru Emoto

Did you know that our bodies are approximately 60% water and water is what carries and distributes all the nutrients through all of the cells in all of the systems in our bodies? Water is what keeps our bodies alive by facilitating our bodies’ chemistry.

And now this researcher and others are telling us that water is sensitive and responds to thoughts and prayers and other electromechanical waves. You know what this means, my friend?

Next time you ask,

“Doctor, ain’t there nothing I can take?”

you’ll get,

“You put the love in the water,
you drink them both together,
put the love in the water,
and then you’ll feel better.
Put the love in the water,
and drink them both up,
Put the love in the water,
and call me in the morning.”

Why not start your day with some love in your water?
