Intentional Self Healing and Setting ‘Right Action’ with the aid of the 2nd Book of Yoga Sutras

THE YOGA SUTRAS OF PATANJALI Our choices affect us more than we realise, where we quite often or not place wellness and ownership in the responsibility of others. Life is uncertain, change causes fear, and latent impressions bring pain, all is indeed suffering to us where we have fashioned a trend for our own self discrimination. [2:15]. This can be averted. With the second book of Sutras reminding us that the play of the world can overshadow our wellness with the play of the universal energies named gunas. It is only for the sake of the self that the world exists. [2:21] To clearly remind us that the purpose of the world is to provide us with ‘experience’ and thus lead us into personal liberation [2:18] from the basis of experience. The self becomes obscured by the world in order that the reality of both may be discovered; the shades of light and dark.

Powers of intention

WRITE IT DOWN It may not be a tender new year on this very moment; yet reflect upon listening to your inner self. I have been doing this one every New Year’s Eve for the last several years: My family of beautiful souls write down each of their many colourful and varied delicate goals for the New Year. These are sealed away in an envelope and compassionately opened up the eve of the following year for deep scrutiny and humour. A whole year on it is a tender reminder of how much you can achieve in just one year. By using the the power of intention, not written in the format of “I’d like to…” or “I want to…” it will dilute the power of your intention. Write and flow out the “I will…” or “I’m going to…” or even just the goal itself. “Run a 5-minute mile.” “Practice yoga twice a week.” “Write my novel.” The power of a goal isn’t just reaching it, it is in recognising that you can hear what you want in your …
