Nellioness. For Soul, For Mind, For Body.: Butterflies bring blissful erotic moments

Sometimes live gets so busy,
I couldn’t even say “hi”,
Make a call,
Or send a reply,
And it doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten you,
It is because I’ve in my heart,
That where I’ve always kept YOU.
My Yoga Master took time to share some of the texts below with me and the class when we completed our Kriya Yoga. I thought it is good to pass on the goodness I received. Enjoy.

When each one of us was born, we were like a piece of colourless cloth. Pure. From the very second we made our first cry, that piece of cloth started to be coloured. Our values and beliefs were all influenced and structured by our reactions and responses to our external world. As we become increasingly manipulated by the external consciousness, our internal well-being began to dissipate. We continuously lose our sense of centering.

When posed with a question, “Who do you think you are?”, many of us are unable to find an answer. In fact, confusion of our persona is real and find an answer is not possible. We have lost the Truth in us. We are not being able to be honest with ourselves and and being able of offer a truthful answer.

In our modern world, due to the various distractions and attachments, we could be completely lost to the world of greed, materialism and false reality. We rely on external opinions and views to judge who we are. We no longer determine ourselves who we are. Society dictates how we become ourselves. Therefore, within the course of a day, we could be what others want us to be many times over.

Our mind fluctuates constantly. It changes from moments to moments. It is never ever steady. We are unable to capture our mind’s process. One moment we could be conscious of this and just the very next, we are mindful of another idea. Uninvited thoughts!! Have you ever observed how the more pressure and stress you are under, the more that seems to be on your mind?

On the other hand, the more relaxed you are, the less you will have on your mind.

How is it ever possible to steady our mind? How can we empty and clear our mind, centre a stillness, a calm and silence to evade the busy world we incessantly associate ourselves with?

There is a way. Yoga can provide an answer if there is a desire to seek. You may ask, “What’s Yoga?”. In The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, Yoga is explained as a practice to still the patterning of the consciousness. Indeed, all that one does through is to seek a way to reach still our our conscious pattern. In so achieving that state, we can take a momentary glimpse of our unconscious with a hope to reveal and discover the truth of who we really are as an individual and be honest about our Being.

Man is born with a centre. Most of us never got to know of it or never know that it ever existed. He or she can live through life without knowing its existence. However, one can never live without it!! Not knowing its existence, you will be homeless; without root. Drifting as the fluctuating mind and temptations take over and take you here and there. You are passing time; carrying on with a deep slumber and a dream. And a frustration will build up and become a dark shadow that will be attached to you and follow you everywhere.

When a child is born and he or she is rooted at the navel centre. This is the only real centre throughout his or her life. A natural centre, the original center, not a by-product. The Japanese call it “Hara”, hence the word “hara-kiri”. Most of us do not know that the Hara existed. Observing a child’s breathing, his navel will go up and down. He or she breathes with the belly. He or she lives with the belly – not with the head, not with the heart. As the pure, colourless, stainless cloth get coloured, the child gets drift further and further away from the is natural centre.

A growing child will develop another centre – the Heart. The centre of emotion. This is not the real centre. The centre is a by-product. He or she will learn to love, he will be loved. If the child is not loved, he or she will not love. We all know this. Psychologists know this too. If a child is brought up in a non-loving environment with not love and warmth, he or she will never be able to love another person because this Heart centre has not been developed. We were not born with this centre. We have to develop it by growing the centre.

Therefore, in a busy world, parents are rarely able to offer quality love to grow a child’s Heart centre. Most parents like to think they do. In fact, not many do as they were brought up with less. Many offer materialism instead to replace quality love. Many parents go on producing children and know less how to offer their children a meaningful love centre. Over generations, the true meaning of love diminishes as each generation received less quality love and was not able to pass on more to the next.

As society thinks it is becoming civilized, the more it forces into being a third centre. The Head centre. This is reason, intellect, head. Education, logic and training create this third centre; another by-product. Just observe how much parents focus their effort and time to develop this Head centre. This becomes the basic force in life because the whole life depends on this centre. It is utilitarian. One needs it for reason, logic, thinking. So everyone becomes sooner or later – head-oriented. We begin to live in our heads!!

There are many men and women in this world who were never given a full opportunity to develop a Heart centre. Time was expanded growing the Head centre. The navel is the Being. The Heart is the Feeling. The Head is the Knowing. The link between the Heart and Navel Centres is missing or weak. Knowing is the furthest from the Being. If we miss the Feeling, it is challenging to bridge the Knowing and Being. That is the reason a loving person may realize his or her at-homeness in the world more easily than a person who lives through intellect.

A deep blissful moment occurs when we are able to touch our Hara or come near to the centre. A fine example is Sex. In sex sometimes you come near to the Hara because in sex your mind, your consciousness moves downwards. You have to leave your head. In a deep sexual orgasm, sometimes it happens that you are near your hara. That is why there is so much fascination about sex. It is not really sex which offers you the blissful ezperience. It is the Hara. You can never enjoy sex similar to the Hara, if sex is a cerebral affair in the Head. Sex is an experience. You cannot think about it. Reason is not needed.

Another fascination is Danger. Living dangerously throws you back to the Hara. You cannot think. You cannot work things out with the mind. You have to act immediately. You will have to have a no-mind. Thinking will mean death.

You are driving a car. Faster and faster and faster. Suddenly, a moment enters when every single moment is dangerous. Any moment and there will be death. In that moment of suspense, when death and life are just as near to each other as possible, 2 points just near and you in between, the mind stops. You are thrown into the Hara. That is why there is so much fascination with cars, driving fast and madly. That moment becomes mediative. A bliss erupts, explodes in you. It becomes a showering inside.

Yoga is therefore concerned with creating a rootedness in the Hara. Internal Centering while in consciousness. Seeking silence and discovering the honest deep truth of “Who Am I”. The Being.

Must Read Files: The Ten In Your Life

Don’t be too good I will miss you.
Don’t be too caring, I might like you. Don’t be too Sweet, I might fall for you. It’s hard for me to love you when you won’t love me after all…

Bottom-line : A person who makes me love him is actually a person who loves me more than I love him.
________________x________________________x_____________

If someone comes into your life and becomes a part of you but for some reasons he couldn’t stay, don’t cry too much… Just be glad that your paths crossed and; somehow he made you happy even for a while.

Bottom-line :Time will tell. if he’s yours he will surely come back.
________________x________________________x__________

Don’t throw your back to love when it’s already in front of you. Don’t drive it away from you because if you do, someday you’ll think again why you let love fly away when it was once residing next to you.

Bottom-line : Treasure the one who loves you! It’s not easy to find a person who loves you. It’s always more valuable to have a sincere heart.
________________x________________________x_____________

The greatest regrets in our lives are the risks we did not take. If you think something will make you. happy, GO FOR IT. Remember that we pass this way only once.

Bottom-line : Time doesn’t wait. If you think you might have found the right one, treasure the person, don’t let that person get away. Don’t let fear hold You back. Give it a try else you might regret later…”No one other than ourselves know what can truly make us happy.”
________________x________________________x_____________

“Two tear drops were floating down the river. One teardrop said to the other, “I’m the teardrop of a girl who loved a man and lost him. Who are you?” …”I’m the teardrop of the man who regrets letting a girl go…”

Bottom-line : Nobody will sympathize with a person who constantly lets chances pass by without making any efforts to salvage them. We normally don’t realize how important our loved and close ones are until they leave us, and then we start regretting, which results in misery. Lost time is NEVER gained again

Even impossible says… I – M – POSSIBLE!!!

“People are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

Abraham Lincoln

“People only see what they are prepared to see.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are many of us who are good at different things. For a project, some of us are good are staring one up. Many of us are fabulous when we come to maintaining or running the project to see that it is going smoothly. There are many of us who are simply competent at stopping a project when it has to be done.

Consider treating a project exactly like a business. There are many who can create one business and then another and another. These individuals may not know how to manage the business.

Others would be very happy in operating the business with no idea how to start one up. They would run the business like clockwork and making it tick.

Then there are also many other people, when it has to be done, they have the guts to cease the business and call it a day. Haven’t we come across far too often with individuals who just couldn’t allow a non-viable or non-performing business to close down just for reasons it is too sentimental and to save face!!

Then there are some of us who are going at doing all 3 things or a couple of 3 things very well. We may be good at starting up a business and operating one and hopelessly bad at making a decision to stop it when it has to be done.

How Do You Think?

By Author Unknown

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t!
If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t,
It’s almost certain you won’t.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost;
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will;
It’s all in the state of mind!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you think you’re outclassed, you are;
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself
Before you ‘ll ever win the prize.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the person who thinks he can!

A recent few days ago over lunch with a friend, he mentioned the relationship between Fire and Water. This is what he said.

“Fire burns by Water,
Water moves by Fire.”

To make it simple, he said, “Imagine Fire is a Man and Water is a Woman. Man will always be fed by the passion and love for a woman. What a man can do and achieve is a result of his woman playing a significant role in the relationship. A woman will be moved by a man. A woman role in the relationship is moved along by the man in her life. Fire and Water need to be constantly balanced so that both elements can be harmonized. When that happens the relationship is centered. When a man is not passionate of his woman, the relationship is heading towards disaster. Likewise, if the woman is not moved by the man, the relationship is bound for trouble.”

He carried on to say, “Fire burns towards the sky. Water tends to spread to all nooks and corners. A man tends to be focused whereas a woman tends to have broader perspectives. In a relationship, when the man wanders off, his woman will need to tow the line and pull him back on track. When a woman stretches too far, her man can bring her a focused perspective.”

This is an analogy of the interaction between a man and a woman. Very often, chaos and battles prevails as to which gender is mightier and greater. Why not view this in a different angle? Each can’t do without the other. Why not work symbiotically together to exploits the strengths of each other and create peace, harmony, growth and well-being for both and others?

Simple said than done? However, worth working towards.

Below contains more information about water, fire and the other elements in Greek and Chinese philosophy.

Fire and water are just 2 out of 4 elements mentioned in the Greek philosophy. Earth and air are the other two.

Traditional Chinese philosophers mentioned 5 elements. Earth, Wood, Fire, Metal and Water.

In the Chinese philosophy, the doctrine of five phases describes two Cycles of Balance, a generating or creation(生, shēng) cycle and an overcoming or destruction (克, ) cycle of interactions between the phases.

Generating

  • Wood feeds Fire;
  • Fire creates Earth (ash);
  • Earth bears Metal;
  • Metal collects Water and
  • Water nourishes Wood.

Overcoming

  • wood parts earth;
  • earth absorbs water;
  • water quenches fire;
  • fire melts metal and
  • metal chops wood.

It’s about time that I share a funny and light story with everyone. Life is not all serious and solemn. There’s a humorous side too.

Enjoy!! hehhehehe…eee.eee. hhehee…

Why We Live as Long as We Do…


On the first day God created the cow. God said, “You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer I will give you a life span of sixty years.

The cow said, “That’s a kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty years and I’ll give back the other forty.

And God agreed.

On the second day, God created the dog. God said, “Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years.

The dog said, “That’s too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I’ll give back the other ten.

So God agreed (sigh).

On the third day God created the monkey. God said, “Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I’ll give you a twenty year life span.


The monkey said, “How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don’t think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that’s what I’ll do too, okay?

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day God created man. God said, “Eat, sleep, play. Do nothing, just enjoy, enjoy. I’ll give you twenty years.

Man said, “What? Only twenty years? No way! Tell you what, I’ll take my twenty, and the forty cow gave back, and the ten dog gave back and the ten monkey gave back. That makes eighty, okay?

“Okay,” said God. “You’ve got a deal.

So this is why for the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, enjoy, and do nothing;

for the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family;

for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain our grandchildren;

and for the last ten years we sit in front of the house and bark at everybody.


To create change and being able to transform oneself, one begins with one’s state of mind.

To create build rapport, relationship and friendship, one begins with one’s heart.


The Mind versus The Heart

To handle yourself, use your head.

To handle others, use your heart.
