Planet Ohm

What’s the first few things that come to your mind when you’re asked to think of yoga? For most people, they’d probably think of flexible people with colourful mats, lululemon or cotton on leggings and the famous “ohmmmmmmmmmmmmm”.
Well, I used to be one of them. And I used to think it was pointless.
Then I learnt that the sound “ohm” isn’t just some random sound that someone 5000 years ago came up with – it’s the very sound of everything. It’s a primal sound – it’s everywhere. It’s the vibrational frequency found throughout everything in nature (432 Hertz). It’s ohmmmmmnipresent! (I hope you laughed)
More importantly, it represents being away from the past, present and future. If you’ve ever been to a yoga class, you’ve probably heard your instructor saying something like, “relax your mind”. That’s because yoga believes in the removal of consciousness, mind and thought (Chithr Vriti Niroda). Wait… how is that even possible?
Honestly, I don’t know. But here’s how I like to think of it – you are now on planet Ohm. On this planet, time doesn’t exist, it’s just space. When time isn’t known in your vocabulary, it’ll then be possible to be away from your past, present and future. In other words, your mind won’t be able to associate yourself with any memory or knowledge. You would be removed from your mind, your consciousness, your thoughts.
So while this may seem completely impossible here on earth, it’s all possible on planet Ohm. The mind does wonders…so how about letting it wander off (no pun intended) to planet Ohm and away from everything?nn
