Releasing from obstacles. Gratitude for my gifts and wisdom gained through obstacles. Dominic December 15, 2019 Uncategorized 0 Comments “Meet this transient world with neither grasping nor fear, trust the unfolding of life, and you will attain true serenity.” Bhagavad Gita I am so blessed to have found Yoga, and then in that; my awakening being drawn to understand some of the Hindu texts, philosophy and practices. This was all complimentary, but is not required of course, to those on a yogic journey. This was not what I had fully intended to take, but only getting some space, to get healthy and maybe a little out of the spotlight, if only for a bit. I would have had no idea where I would have arrived at now, nor believed how fantastic life like this could be. That this was even a way of living. But through this process, I was opened back up to believing in so much, believing and knowing God, after ignorantly being so angry, guilty and lost for far too many years. After so many years, I had grown to see the world as an adversary, the evil all around as something that I needed to be prepared to vanquish, because its pervasiveness and associated threats lurked around every corner. I had long lost my faith, before my arrival in India, something I believed I could live without. No matter how unhappy and unfulfilled u had become. As do many become, by being worn down by a constant flood of negative personal experiences, horrific stories they are told of others and the images they see. When life is all about you, your ego is continually fed and there is no room for any real truth, light and love. The world I had grown to know, seemed as though evil always prevailed, the good among us always bested by the blade of the cunning corrupted mind and their associated loathsome deeds. I had long studied and been exposed to so much theology and philosophy, but it was through a narrow controlled lens. The messages had been disseminated by those whom I did not respect, I cast judgement upon them, as lacking true authenticity and/or an suitable perspective. Questions at what I saw as evil pervading all around with no significant opposing force, were never met with sufficiently adequate explanation. The rest on my blog tomorrow, please let me know your thoughts🙏🏽🕉🕉🕉 #gurugint #yogatribe #hinduism #spirituality Intention of obstacle. Gratitude for the gift which I may learn in understanding this obstacle. Gratitude for all of the blessings I have received. Requesting clarity and release from this obstacle, so that I may be aligned with my true path. Ganesh Puja, my best explanation thus far would be that, in Hinduism, Ganesh is a deity, who is the remover of obstacles, however he also places the obstacles there before us, so that we may learn from them, if we aware and are open to receiving his wisdom and direction back to our true path. It is when we resist the lessons that the universe is attempting to extol unto us that we feel more pain and experience a greater struggle, but how we wish to journey is up to us. In this ceremony, there are offerings of thanksgiving made for the blessings of all the bounty we high surround us, a ritual has been handed down more thousands of years, calling forth and combining the elements of nature in the creation of a vortex and an energetic portal brining our consciousness and beings closer to God and our true state as holy spirits, one with God and the universe. It is in this state and in this perfect union, where we train our consciousness on our present obstacles, give thanks and gratitude for them, so that we may learn from them, and regain alignment with our true nature and on the path meant for us. We ask that we may learn the lessons meant for us and move beyond our present conflict, to grow and evolve as beings.
