Newsletter - October 2021

Dear One


Autumn is a time of change and the mind can become loudly busy.


Remember the silence is always there, even if the thoughts seem to invade your peace. Behind all the thoughts however intrusive they seem, the silence is there.

If we think we are having a bad day, we are thinking about ourselves.

If we think we are having a good day, we are observing.


We are what we think.


Do we hold onto attractive thoughts?

Even godly thoughts or thoughts of Higher Self pull us away from God.


God is in the present here and now. Thoughts are not.


When we practice with full attention on our posture our thoughts die down.

It is then that we come back to the omni presence.

Reading Homework

Please read and absorb “Sanatan Dharma”;

Choose from Enlightened Masters – its on page 117 in “Presence”.

We can discuss this further on Wednesday.


For those that are reading the Gita, the first 6 chapters are the most helpful to us.

For new TT students, please read and familiarise yourself with the Eight Limbs of Yoga, page 114 in “Presence”


We will go over this on Wednesday 13th October.


Standing Postures

Keep your feet on the ground. As you earth down can you feel the exchange of energies through the soles of your feet (even on your mat)?

Keep the back leg strong and you will stay in the present/the centre. Rather than lunging forward into the future.

Jump onto your mat even if you feel you have not got the energy to practice.

The energy will come.


Breathe well

Love
