Day Eighty-Seven:The Path to Self Realization -Jnana Yoga-Lesson One-The Four Margas of Yoga

Quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (29)

Do you ever feel like life is just happening to you  and that you are

entirely out of control of your path and the outcome?

I think we all do at some point-what would life be like if

we came to the realization that life is set up to teach is lessons

that will allow us to evolve in a forward continuous flow as

a river towards the sea? That is the goal of Jnana Yoga; to

come to understand that each experience, no matter how

challenging or breathtaking is there to solidify our sense of

self and mold our divine and glorious selves. If we view life

from a philosophical stand point it will be easier to navigate

through it armed with the knowledge that the intricate web

of experiences hold the keys that allow us to thrive life rather

than survive it!

Letting go of ego based thinking is the goal of Jnana Yoga. When a yoga

student can listen with intent and begins to embrace the knowledge

shared with them by their instructor or their spiritual teachings, they

are pursuing the Jnana path. In order to release ego based thinking

one must become introspective and contemplative and trust that

the key to becoming self aware lies within each and every one of us.

An individual that is pursuing the yogic way of life will not be

satisfied with practicing the physical postures solely but will delve

into the philosophies and nature of yogic spirituality.

Journal Entry: Do you feel like life is ‘happening to you’ or do you feel that

you are an active participant? Think of a time when you were an active

and willing participant in your life. What was different then? What brought

you away from that way of thinking? What could you do to get back to that

way of thinking.
