20110415 - What has Illuminated my Teaching?

I have chosen the phrase from Light on Life by B.K.S. Iyengar, page 18 “… the path toward spirit lies entirely in the domain of nature.” It supports the philosophy that has been passing down to me, generation after generation through seven thousands of year.

Like B.K.S. Iyengar further explains, “Spirituality is not ethereal and outside nature but accessible and palpable in our very own bodies. Indeed the very idea of a spiritual path is a misnomer.” How can we move toward something that is already by definition everywhere?

In I Ching or Book of Changes, Yin and Yang “is” the ultimate gene for everything in the universe. Universe, the Tai Chi, Tai is Chinese character big with a small dot, meaning, something can either be significant as no external boundary (endless) or insignificant as no internal boundary (endless). Things that can and can’t been seen, the known and unknown.

Universe is Nature. We born from it and will return back to it. There was never a true death as “the gene” has been continuously passing on in an endless succession. Each matters in this universe are here for several roles, but each role are with two responsibilities that are inseparable as body and shadow: to assist (Yin) and to lead(Yang). Yoga practice is a tool to cleanse our body, mind and soul, which enable us see through the truth that we are indeed already in the divinity.

Our role as a teacher as the light, to assist and lead, the light bulb must be polished continuously to allow the light to shine through for Self and the others.
