Most people have their focus on others, especially at this time of year. Yoga says you must keep your focus on your Self – your own Divine Self. It might sound selfish at first, but it’s really about overflowing with light and love so much that others are benefited.
So how do you keep your focus on your Self without getting caught up in your emotions, reactions, needs and fears? You focus on your Divinity – not on your imperfections and insecurities. It’s a HUGE shift.
Yoga goes a step farther and says you cannot make that shift in yourself unless you’ve got the blessing and support of those who have preceded you on the path. Such a yogi, who knows their own Divinity, is essential if you want to know your own. In fact, that is what Christmas is all about: celebrating the life of a Divine Being, whose life and teachings have endured for thousands of years. Yoga says Divine Humans are always alive on this earth and always available to those who want to know.
I have dedicated my life to that knowing, having had the door opened for me by a Divine Human, Swami Muktananda. In service to Him, I share the teachings and practices that will make the shift in you – that you may be the Divine Human that carries this unto the next generation.
Keep your focus on the Divine, in this holiday season that celebrates the Divine Human.
With love & blessings, Swami Nirmalananda
