A Simple Meditation to See the World Clearly

A simple but effective way of practicing Vidya, clear seeing, is by doing a simple form of meditation that I learned from my teachers and which I call the “There Is” Practice. You can do this anywhere and while doing anything. #meditation #mindfulness

Learning to See Clearly

Written by on December 4, 2018 in Conscious Living, Meditation, Thrive with 0 Comments
Learning to See Clearly

The Yoga Sutras is a book written by an ancient yoga scholar, Patanjali, (200 CE) which outlines much of the philosophy of the practice of yoga. A major principle in the Yoga Sutras is the principle of Avidya, or misapprehension. In Sanskrit, the word Vidya means to see clearly. Avidya is the opposite of clear seeing. Unfortunately our human experience is rife with Avidya, this unclear seeing. I believe that one of our major lessons in this earthly existence is to learn to recognize our Avidya and enlighten ourselves by learning to see clearly.

Not an Escape

Not an Escape

Entering Sacred Space Something unique happens when we come to the yoga studio or sit on our meditation cushions. We close the door behind us, shutting the noisy world outside. We remove the dirt and insulation of our well-worn shoes, forgetting for a moment the path we have trodden to arrive. We take off our […]

Holding the Dark with the Light

Holding the Dark with the Light

One thing I’ve learned from life and from sages is that on the journey toward illumination, we must inevitably experience darkness, grief, and loss to some degree or other. Joy Larger than Joy Happiness Part of our understanding is to see the entire Universe, not only the parts which we translate as peachy. As we […]

Presence is Life

Presence is Life

Like everyone else, I try to make meaning of the relatively small time I enjoy walking on top of this earth instead of being buried beneath it. The poet Maria Tsvetaeva speaks to this perfectly when she says in her poem, I Know The Truth:   I know the truth – give up all other truths! […]

Change Rooms In Your Mind

I climb out of the car after 6 hours of freeway driving, fun traveling and an amazing change of scenery, and jump into a different landscape, a dark, cool, autumn evening.  Summed up: short sleeves, short shorts, short run. The fragrant autumn air! I climb the hill near my house and run by past East […]

The Crossroads

The Crossroads

The crossroads is a magical place. It’s the place where the ethereal, spiritual, and philosophical meets the physical, real, and practical. Where these two roads intersect is the holy ground of transformation, it’s the place where we have to drop our one-track thinking and see the many roads. Practicing yoga means to be at the […]

The Sun Within You

The Sun Within You

I awake today and sit enjoying the silence of the morning. Even as I sit, I’m watching the bright morning sun dance its procession around my front room. It is playing with the crystal hung in my eastern window and splattering rainbow prisms across each wall. Even as I look, the color changes and fades, […]

Your Wisdom Body

Your Wisdom Body

There is a part of you that just knows. Call it intuition. Call it your gut feeling. Call it your inner-guru. Call it what you want but I’d wager that sometime or other we’ve all had an experience that feels like we’ve tapped into some deeper wisdom within ourselves. We have more control over this […]

The Manual for Rebuilding

The Manual for Rebuilding

I used to own two yoga studios. As anyone owning a small business might attest, during the years that I owned those studios, I fought every day just to keep the doors open. Eventually, we had to close our doors; the studios weren’t sustainable. Of course I wish I knew then what I know now […]

A Simple Equation for Success

Before I declared English as my major in college, I took a few business classes. And even though I didn’t stick with business, in those courses I learned some crucial lessons which I’d use my entire life. Perhaps the most important thing I learned in all of my college courses was an equation for success, […]
