Have you heard this term earlier! A four letter word...But until or unless explain, you may not recognize what I want to mean...It’s a quite interesting and much heard word…
Every activity of life can be made a means for ‘this’ and that’s the whole point of life. Except that, most of us live unconsciously and mechanically!
Just consider a typical day, from morning to night… What you do? Apart from reacting to circumstances! How many things have you done, where you consciously chosen to act in a certain manner, without response to some provocation? Think!
Actually, we are victim of circumstance…
But there comes a point with which is a state of ‘Maturity’, from where we begin to take charge. Understand! Don’t want to be a victim.
...“Don’t get unhappy just for someone said something.. and feel low. Why should think like that! That’s the problem of other who doesn’t understand..”.
We have done it so many times, by choice... isn’t it!
The problem is most of the time, we are not conscious of ourselves.
If we can begin with those moments we are conscious and extend that effort to wider expanse. Then life will becomes consciously lived, and with this conscious living can able to accelerate the pace of change & growth.
This conscious living, conscious acceleration and increasing control over circumstances…is the purpose of life. To grow through experiences, control circumstances and become conscious participants in own purpose… Life meaning becomes prominent.
Expectantly, no more thrown about by the waves of life, but begin to row actively in the direction you want to go... this is called ‘Yoga’ and four letter word refers to it as Conscious Accelerated Evolution…That’s all.
Yoga is not asanas or meditation; it means Conscious Accelerated Evolution… This movement of progress, forward movement of conscious change is precisely what I titled… derived from illuminated thought of Sri Aurobindo.
As a matter of fact, everyone is in the process, knowingly or unknowingly…
