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.

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