[18/52] Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy

[18/52] Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy

It is said that you need to have an inclination to Spirituality willingly then you become aware of its presence. Sadhguru’s book has been pivotal for my Spiritual growth, and I think it is going to remain forever ingrained within me. The knowledge I got from this book has intensified my determination to continue my Spiritual Journey and practise it daily.

I knew I was always a Spiritual person and this book heightened the belief I have. Of course, there are talks about Spirituality being some mumbo jumbo thing, but there is more science to it than we can even Imagine.

I was always skeptic of why I got angry or even reacted to a particular situation or a person.  I realised that anger is unintelligent and dealing with it has become much simpler.

The belief I had in Yoga has deepened, and I now know, why this age old science is so much relevant even today. Simple practices if done properly can benefit you immediately. If simple poses can do this, imagine the magnitude it can impact if you practise daily and cover at minimum the beginner poses. I have started practising Yoga from my childhood, but I was doing it without a purpose, and I lost touch with it as I grew. Now I know the “Why” of Yoga.

Bowing down to elders was always a mystery to me, I always did it without much thought as I felt right doing it. Now it does shatter some of the modern belief systems, but this simple practice has a much deeper meaning than I thought. Bowing down is an indicator of the arrogance we have within ourselves. We can find many things much more intelligent than us as Human beings in general. When we bow down, we are just humble to the greater intelligence that exists that we are not aware. Of course bowing down is a symbolic gesture but you bow down to anything living or non-living and still be humble.

“Your joy, your misery, your love, your agony, your bliss, lies in your hands. There is a way out. And the way out is in.  ”

– Sadhguru

[Book 12/52]Oh, The Places You’ll Go! by Dr.Seuss – Review

I found this book in the background of a Garyvee daily video. I immediately ordered it from Amazon.  I do not regret the decision of buying this book. Although a children’s book grown ups can also be inspired by this book.

Dr.Seuss talks about the challenges you will face in life and what you should do. Life may not always be a smooth ride. Like many wait for something to happen when they face a challenge, you should not be the same. Rather you should pick yourself up and go places. Once you are out of a challenge, you may face many others.

What should you do?

Pick yourself again and again for each of the challenges that slow you down.
