How to choose the right Yoga teacher training course?
It’s confusing, it’s convincing, it’s deceiving, it’s not what you are looking for? All this and more is what you will encounter with the abundant number of choices available for attending your dream Yoga teacher training course.
Yoga cannot be taught, it is experienced, experienced within not without. The most important element in the selection process is not the place, the course contents, the books, the materials that are given, the price, but above all, is the catalyst, the Teacher (the Guru).
The guru, who like a catalyst, can create a spark within you to enable you to look direct into your inner awareness, consciousness. This Guru is the only one, most critical to your path towards sanctum. You got to feel with the Guru, not decide on price. See, look, observe, if Guru can glance within you, reveal your habits, challenge you, spar with you to reveal your dark insecurities, fear, pride, anger.
Buddha says, the real power is “Meekness is most powerful, for it harbours no evil thoughts and moreover it is restful and full of strength.”
When you fight, you expend energy. When you fight, you lose energy. Don’t fight for the sake of fighting, preserve energy, and you will be powerful. One who saves his energy becomes a reservoir of energy that his very being and presence becomes powerful.
It is just magical, unanimous, pervasive and miraculous. When you come close to this person, you are being transformed and the darkness, worries, anger disappears, completely annihilated. A different dimension, at another plane unfolds in front. We reach another altitude, just electrifying. People ask me how to find the Guru. The one possible way is just be near, close-by, completely silent, and in harmony with the Guru. In this harmonious state, if you feel you are climbing, ascending higher and higher, then this person is the Guru. This person has the make-up of a lightning, sharp, resplendent and simply electrical. The door to the ultimate , the energy combined becomes musical and a force is created.
