A New Translation of Yoga
Here's how I'll lay them out.
A. Now, the teachings of yoga.
B. Still your mind and listen; the following are the teachings (yet not the practice) of Yoga in its entirety.
C. The teachings on engine repair are down the hall.
A. Yoga is to still the patterning of consciousness.
B. Yoga is quieting the chatter of the mind.
C. Yoga is shutting up the shit.
A. Then pure awareness can abide in its very nature.
B. We can remain peacefully aware of (re-member) ALL that we truly are - returning to unity.
C. We see that we are so much more than all of that shit.
A. Otherwise awareness takes itself to be the patterns of consciousness.
B. If we do not practice, we become associated with the myriad of thoughts and believe we are no more than our habits.
C. If we don't practice, we believe we are that shit.
I'm having fun with these so sure I will continue.
