2014 – The Year of the Horse – Discipline and hard work

 Excerpt from Guruji’s YouTube:

Asana, you start. You take asana, more asana, asana, asana, asana. Much asana is there. The more asana you do, good strength and stamina. Your energy is increasing everyday, everyday. Your mind is also ‘correctly standing.’ This is yoga method. Abhyasa (constant and determined study or practice). You can take practice. Don’t talk.

The “method” increases energy, endurance, strength and stamina.  ‘Correctly standing’ signifies remaining present, positive, respectful in your intentions.

Ted Talk by Shawn Anchor  
 hear the way your brain processes how we see the world and its effect on our happiness.

A group’s transcendental meditation focused on lowering the crime rate in a large metropolitan city in the mid-west.  The result was that the crime rate indeed lowered during that meditation timeframe.

“… what that question assumes is that our external worlds is predictive of our happiness levels – when in reality, if you know everything about your external world I can only predict 10% of your long term happiness.  90% of your long term happiness is predicted not by your external world:  but by the way your brain processes the world.”   ~ TED TALK by Shawn Anchor
