False Self vs. Real Self? You do not have this problem | Mark Whitwell

“And It hit me like a ton of bricks that there was nothing to be liberated from.” Life does not come in the form of a problem or a question. We are here to enjoy our lives. | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
Sensitivity to our own embodiement naturally gives us sensitivity to another. Yoga is body, breath and relationship, in that order. For you cannot love another until you love your legs | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
Yoga reprograms the nervous system to become receptive to its experience. In the natural state, we are a perfect blend of male-female. Relationship dysfunction and sexual abuse arises in people when they are not given the means to be receptive in life, so they search for the sex from another because they cannot feel the sexual union that arising as their own embodiment. | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
“The Self is already attained.” Bhagavan Nityananda. What does this mean? There are no steps to be taken. | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
Yoga is direct participation in Reality, in the power of the cosmos that is your life. Humanity is presently suffering from a mass dissociation from the Real. To practice Yoga is to break the chain of events that is leading humanity to extinction and causing untold misery in lives everywhere: depression, suicide, neglect, physical and sexual abuse, and even war. Yoga is not something you do in your room to make yourself feel better. | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
“It is intimacy that we need, not positive thinking. It is intimacy that we need, not mindfulness. It is intimacy that we need, not God. It is intimacy that we need, not enlightenment.”
