Body Love the Yogi way
Your Valentines story
Yogi love is extraordinary love. The philosophy of yoga teaches us if we want to know more about our creator we need only look into the body for answers.
Your skin. How incredible it is. For a moment, become aware of the complex nature of what it is and how complex and sensitive it is. The slightest tickle of a feather or the luxurious sensory experience of coconut oil and lavender bath or the slightest breeze upon your face is mesmerizing. Billions of years of evolution make up the human body. How complex nervous system is and, your DNA keeps a record of all your ancestors. Perhaps you can see your great grandfather's nose on your face?
All creatures are having a sensory experience here on Earth and the Human experience is the most sophisticated of them all. Yoga philosophy teaches us we have five layers or sheaths. Every aspect of the human system, including the mind, is seen as a body, and yoga is a technology to transform it.
The five layers are the physical body, the mind-body, the energy body, the intuitive-intelligence body, and the bliss body. Yoga teaches us to reach into the bliss body and experience non-duality. Union. An all-encompassing feeling of everyone and everything. The most divine expression of Love. Love is what you are.
The philosophy of Yoga teaches us to love our body, nurture it, feed it well, expose it to sensory experiences which are pleasing in nature, exercise it well, expand the lung capacity with fresh air and pay attention to its needs and wants. Overstimulation of sound, food, physical activities, and mental strain will start the break the system down and illness then happens.
Fall in love with your body all over again. Creator’s love is no further away from us than your own body. By engaging in the body's intuitive intelligence layer and loving all aspects of it, health and happiness are yours to enjoy.
