We are not the mental fluctuations
Trying not to get involved with the mental fluctuations in revolved triangle pose- pavirtta trikonasana.
New teaching theme starts tomorrow- yoga brings the mind (- known as manas in Sanskrit) to the Soul “atma” - the true splendour.
There are 2 lenses of mind - one outwards and one inwards
When we relate to what is seen, heard, felt or experienced in any way with our own self (me part; ego), we can become involved and engrossed with it so much that we forget our radiant awareness.
“When the soul does not radiate its own glory, it is a sign that the thinking faculty has manifested itself in place of the soul”
Ref 1,2 and 1,3 Patanjali Yoga Sutras.
