As we journey through life, we inevitably experience duality. Everything we come into contact with has two opposite polarities. By nature, one polarity allows the other to exist, and vice-versa. Therefore, polarities will always exist at the same time – we cannot change this. But we can change the way we relate to polarities. To live successfully in an environment ruled by polarities, we must stop trying to solve or ignore them, but learn to deal with them and manage them.
Kundalini Yoga is the science of the Self, it is a technology that supports a comparative study of polarities. Kundalini Yoga is based on the only art we need to learn: the art of relationship. This process requires discipline, and the outcome will be unconditional love.
Crystallizing the Diamond
The Eight Limbs of Patanjali – Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi – are the check in, the boarding pass and the final destination of mastering relationships with our own selves, with others and with the universe. Life is to love and yoga is for life. Yama and Niyama are the basic requirements in order to be able to relate from a neutral and real place, so we can build a solid foundation for prosperous, everlasting, trusting relationships. Careers, family, situations, community, money, sex, relaxation, health, space, time are all a matter of relationship: the level of harmony, conflict or stress we have towards them depends on how we relate to them.
Yama and Niyama are the check in, Asana and Pranayama are the boarding stage, Pratyahar, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi are the progression in flying and a at our final destination. Wherever we will land, despite any geographical, meteorological or social conditions, will be the best place we have ever been. All sources of pain come from conflict with polarities, incapacity to relate, and lack of love. Learning this process is the absolute priority in our life if we want to be Happy, Healthy and Holy.
