The study and practice of Integral Yoga is now an integral part of my life. Connecting with the force that makes us who and what we are has become second nature…though not without it’s challenges.
I don’t follow a religion, I live life in a certain way, towards a certain goal – towards truth, light, harmony, love and peace. And while I study the work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, and closely follow the experience of Satprem and Sujata I also keep my eyes and ears open, mind and heart to accept all useful knowledge and guidance.
Each person has the ability to progress as long as the flame of aspiration burns bright and with total sincerity. Each person has a right to faith, to believe in something bigger…regardless of race, sex, creed or culture. Where humanity has gone astray is by allowing others to manipulate and control this faith – which image is most holy, which teachings are most truthful, which ‘god’ is most powerful.
I believe we are all children of the Divine, each and every living being has a connection, and that we cannot become that which we are destined to become unless and until we are first able to live compassionately, harmoniously, in peace and with love – accepting all, rejecting none and disconnecting from all of our desires (cravings, addictions, greed) and aversions (hate, jealousy, racism, fear).
With much love…
