Integral Yoga Teachings


Perfection in Action is Yoga

Where is the action if you sit quietly and close your eyes and meditate? Get into the field. And make sure that the mind is totally focused, one-pointed, not shaken.

The Man of Steady Wisdom

We are all looking for happiness; but, unfortunately, we’re not looking where the Gita tells us to. We look outside ourselves for it.

Bhagavad Gita Study: Chapter 2, Verse 38

If we start to feel anxious about gain or loss, victory or defeat, etc., we know that the ego is not ready to let go, trust life, or let us leave the outcome to a higher will.

Know Your Roots

Self-realization means to know that you are essentially that Spirit or Consciousness or God. Even though the truth is that we are all essentially God, most of us don’t really experience that.

You Are Great

As you think so you become. Think that you are great, and you are great. Think that you are hopeless, and certainly you will be hopeless.

Pratyahara

By the proper practice of pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses) the senses become fully under your control. They become obedient horses, taking you wherever you want. You become a complete master over them.

Bhagavad Gita Study: Chapter 2, Verse 28

We are afraid of death; not because of the unknown,but rather some part of our psyche remembers the experience, shortly after leaving the body, of having to review the life we just lived.
