The Eights Truths About Yoga
How can we meditate if our bodies are sick and diseased? Of if our minds are uncontrollably restless?
Yoga āsana has the power to heal the body, to cure disease, and to purify our nerves so that our concentration becomes one-pointed.
Yoga means "union" or "to yoke," which is the key to all healing -- reconnecting what's broken. Unity brings more purity because wherever there's union there's divinity. It is the Divine nature of our supreme Self which manifests through the practice of yoga. Our Union is connection, and our connection gives us safety.
Our own body understands this, connecting the muscles to the bones and hugging the organs close, because our bodies know that we want everything together. If even one part of our body comes into danger, the whole body pays a lot of attention because it knows that its existence is dependent on every part of itself.
Our bodies are teaching us to pay attention when we feel pain from part of it becoming hurt, and we do -- and we take care of our bodies as a result. But a yogi, a real student of union, sees the whole universe as his or her body. More than sees, actually feels the universe as their own.
Amma knows your pain is mine, actually, she feels our pain as her own. Amma recognizes the spirit of Union as being the real spirit of the yogi. A true yogi is only always trying to create union with the Divine, to unite with the healing force of Mother Nature and Her medicines, to unite the families into loving harmony, to unite the communities into peaceful relations, to unite the peoples of all lands and ways, to unite even the terrible and the horrifying with the chance for redemption into the Unity of love.
