My Life with U.G. Krishnamurti | Mark Whitwell

“There are no steps to be taken” said U.G. I loved him for his total refusal to accept any process of ‘becoming.’ We are Life itself, already; in a profound harmony, already. There is not much more to be said” | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
I learnt from U.G. that our natural state is one of peace and power, and the basis on which our fundamental existence rests. Even patterns of dissociation and fear in the mind are dependent upon the great power of the cosmos. So we go to the root of existingness and abide there | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
U.G. was clear that the source of suffering was the struggle to become something that we are not. In yoga, we release this struggle from our body and minds, gradually and suddenly, leaving us as we always were — in what U.G. called the Natural State | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
The human condition right now is truly terrible. War, poverty, boredom, relationship dysfunction, sexual abuse, mental insanity and predatory behaviours of all kinds, all of which are caused by the fundamental denial of our natural state. We long to feel authentic and relax into our natural life. It is time now to do this. To give up the struggle and enjoy the livingness that we already are. | Mark Whitwell | Heart of Yoga
