Training – Through Spiritual Discipline

Yama. Niyama. Dharana. Dhyana. Sadhana.

Management of life. Purity of being. Concentration. Meditation. Discipline.

 

Teacher Sree always said that he’s not a yogi. A yogi lives and breathes yoga. He’s chill. He practices and teaches yoga.

Note to self: no self-proclamation.

Understanding the 5 aspects above helped me see the breadth and depth of yoga practice as a way of life. From the moment you wake up, to what you are thinking, your intentions, your actions and reactions, and what you plant in your mind before you go to sleep.

I’m barely scratching the surface, but it downs on me that different from education systems that see you as a new empty hardware and so upload you with softwares and apps to help you become more functional in life, Yoga sees and treats your system as already perfect as it is, in its original form. However with life, we have Karma bugs. Turns out, Yoga is a practice to remove bugs in systems. It strives to clear your system and get it back to its clear factory setting so that it can function with minimal (or close to no) glitch. Help you be a smooth operator, if you may.

All the tools and manuals provided are there to help us peel the layers of onions within ourselves. And when you get to the end, you will see that it’s …

 

Listen to yourself, find ways to clean yourself.

From everything, to nothing.

Understand and Adapt to the Global Shifts

Understand and Adapt to the Global Shifts

By Joy Guru Paalu Ramasamy

Global Shift No. 1: Digital Shift. Mobile and effective devices would make computing and business more personal and social.

Global Shift No. 2: Manpower de-stablization. Indians, Chinese, Africans, Brazilians, people from all corners of the world would test, share and embrace best quality implementations, irrespective of origin.

Global Shift No. 3: Diffusion. Governments all over the world would see a slow but deadly loss of power due to Shift No.1 and No.2 spurred by incompetency arising out of hunger for control.

Global Shift No.4: Spiritualisation.  Religions all over the world would lose favour, people would shift to inner spiritualisation motivated by higher literacy rates and degradation of religious organisations.

According to me, Global Shift No.4 is the key to the first 3 shifts.  Spirituality cannot be expressed in words, there might be some indications, but the signs itself cannot fulfil the actual experience.  By pointing to the sun, the finger does not become the sun.

There is no spiritual scripture and there will never ever be one. All scriptures point towards spirituality, but the indication cannot be spiritual, they capable of only handling the mind to understand the indication.

It is not possible to explain the experience through the medium of thoughts, when there are no thoughts.  In spiritualisation, people want a first-hand experience, not hearsay nor some sermons.  They are not interested in brain washing. They want the experience, not the definition of the experience.

Companies all over are facing dire consequences if they still hold on to the idea that an individual charismatic leader is able to muster the support, move mountains and change the bottom-lines.  A company’s success is now dependent on the leader who is able to provide employees with direct, exponential, unadulterated experience. Creativity has to be partnered with compassion. Integrity has to partnered with freedom.  Loyalty has to be partnered with trust.  You cannot have loyalty without trust.  You cannot have integrity without freedom and you cannot have creativity without compassion.

At One Moment of Joy, we create the conditions necessary for employees to have a first-hand experience, energise them within and achieve the desired goals for the company.
