Life after lockdown. Is life a reflection of our inner world? Then what we see will have far-reaching consequences if we know what to do with it. I am so pleased my friend Divya agreed to write the guest blog this month. Divya Kolhi is a yoga teacher and author, and she reminds us that the practice of yoga is about noticing. Her insights are very astute; she’s very much about life and the spirit of our humanity. Enjoy.continue reading
Krishnamurti, Duality Creates Conflict.
Today’s meditation from Krishnamurti, The Book of Life, is from the section on Energy.
Conflict of any kind —-physically, psychologically, intellectually—–is a waste of energy. Please , it is extraordinarily difficult to understand and be free of this because most of us are brought up to struggle, to make an effort. When we are at school, that is the first thing we are taught—to make an effort. And that struggle, that effort is carried throughout life—that is, to be good, you must struggle, you must fight evil, you must resist, control. So educationally, sociologically, religiously, human beings are taught to struggle. You are told that to find God, you must work, discipline, do practice, twist and torture your soul, your mind, your body, deny, suppress; that you must not look; that you must fight, fight, fight at that so-called spiritual level—which is not the spiritual level at all. Then, socially each one is out for himself, for his family.
