Connection Karma

We have developed an association of Yogis that are committed to bringing yoga to more people in the hope of sharing tools that can help others be healthier in their bodies and cultivate clearer minds, therefore, helping them to feel better in both body and mind!

Karma Yoga ~ Actions that bring people together

The world is becoming smaller; we are uniting with the rest of the world through technology.  
At one time we were only aware of our small communities but now we know through the internet and accessibility of mobile phones what is going on in the rest of the world.  If we care to notice, we will also notice how our actions affect the others.  What we do in our little world DOES affect the others.  We don't have to set out to save the world but when we add selfless actions to our daily routine we are making this a better world for all!  However, insignificant it will seem! 

This is a talk about Karma that we gave at the yoga studio that we hope will inspire you to find ways to do actions that bring people together for positive results.

Om - Sacred Sound

Om symbolizes the four states of being.  It is the Divine sound.

In this video Gerald is explaining the Fourth State - Turiya.  The other three states are waking, dreaming and sleep.

A little excerpt from one of my favorite gurus, Ramana Maharshi.  "Be as you are, The Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, edited by David Godman":

Q: How are the three states of consciousness inferior in degree of reality to the fourth [turiya]?  
A:  There is only one state, that of consciousness or awareness or existence.  The three states of waking, dream and sleep cannot be real.  They simply come and go. The real will always exist. The 'I' or existence that alone persists in all the three states is real.  The other three are not real and so it is not possible to say they have such and such a degree of reality.  We may roughly put it like this.  Existence or consciousness is the only reality.   Consciousness plus waking, we call waking.  Consciousness plus sleep, we call sleep.  Consciousness plus dream, we call dream.  Consciousness is the screen on which all the pictures come and go.
