About ten years ago I have learned that there is other world — the Universe.
U can get there through yoga. Someone has told good words about yoga.. Yoga is similar to ocean. One comes to sit on the ocean coast. Another one-comes into the water. The Third-floats. The Fourth-dives. Everyone chooses the kind of yoga which is necessary to him: the way of dialogue with the ocean, Way of dialogue with the Universe.
Earlier, Before studing yoga, I felt anxiety about ones which were feeling bad and were waiting the help. But earlier I didn't understand the reason of my experiences. I thought something wrong with me. I struggled for justice without understanding of sense. But now I know that it should occur to me.
There is the mission-to shine. To shine even when it causes you a pain. First, the pain comes. It is followed by offence. After that the rage is rising. Next feelings-You forgive them. You give them absolute forgiveness...I know that my forgiveness will shine the ways to these persons.
Even if a lot of time will pass, the ones won't remember me, the light will come in their life.
Their souls will awake up.Darkness will recede. My forgiveness is like a small spark in full darkness. The spark shines and something hiding in the dark becomes visible.
People live in the darkness and like it. They are shouting with anger that they dont need your help because they are fine: there is enough money in their pockets, their lives are full of entertainments, and etc. But when they show to you their private world, you watch their lonelyness and unfortunate existence.
Their bodies are similar to garbage bags. They are like automatic machines: eat, move, do some work mechanically, sleep, awake, defecate . Thats all. They don't read books, they are passing by beggars indifferently. They dont have aspiration to personal growth...
They have forgotten such thing like the soul light. Their souls are empty. There is no pleasure inside theirs hearts, the pleasure is called as vital force. I guess the reason. World isn't perfect. People live in such conditions. Life compels people hide deeply inside their souls such things like participation and kindness.
At last, its too easier to be the one like majority than to be the outsider and to draw attention . It is necessary to have a strength of mind to opposite to darkness, isnt it? Where is the one may take the strength of mind in cituation when the soul has fallen asleep?!.
Often I want to cry: People! Stop it! Open your eyes! The sky is so blue, the air is such vivifying! The smell of fresh bread reminds the childhood-the time when each of us was so real and so sincere...
Money is not the only aim of our life... No. The aim is: falling asleep in the evening, to remember the moment when someones eyes were shining because you did some really thing for him: gave your support or has helped to cope with dependence...
You have switched on the light in his soul.
But often I cannot do such thing. The light isnt switching on!
The darkness in the mans soul is so black and t my forces isn't enough. I understand that I am weak. my ray is too small.
I wish to such persons to change their lives while bodies lives haven't ended...
I LOVE YOU, PEOPLE!
I love your metaphor about yoga being like the ocean - I agree! I also appreciate your writing that forgiveness is a spark that lights in the dark within. At PDN, we are talking about forgiveness as a form of spiritual practice - choosing to "let go" and focus mind on happier circumstances - nurturing the "spark" and allowing the darkness to subside.
