Yoga Philosophy: Why You Can Never Live Without
When you practice yoga, you can discover new waves of self-awareness and focusing on your inner you and your new positive energy lines. In fact, the philosophy of yoga’s practice is to get through some important yamas which can reduce the negative energy and cultivate a deep sense of peace and perfect life and personal equilibrium and here are some useful description of some yamas philosophy and how to start practicing them right now.
- Non-violence Yama (Ahimsa) This Yama named Ahmisa comes from the ancient Sanskrit language which means ‘not’ for “a” prefix and the word ‘himsa’ which means ‘harming, ‘violence’ or ‘killing’ someone, man or another being. So Ahmisa is the first of the yamas philosophy, and it has a deep meaning of avoiding doing any harmful or violent actions, to maintain the peace balance in the universe and inside your conscience. As taking small steps in practicing this yoga Yama your awareness levels and perfect inside equilibrium will be reestablished, and you will be able to avoid doing any harm that could destroy your inner peace and others’ life. You could just start practicing by being more kind to other people, forgiving and understanding yourself and persons around you. When ahimsa is embraced totally, an inner confidence and powerful awareness are strongly developed inside yourself.
- Truth-telling (Satya) In Sanskrit, the word ‘sat’ means ‘which it exists’ or ‘which it is,’ so the word Satya should mean total truth or truthfulness. This Yama promotes a total acceptation and embracing of the truth and seeing people as they are and not how we would want them to be. To practice Satya, you must learn to recognize and prevent the torment of negative and fear emotions that can stop you actually to see the whole truth. Once you learn to manage this fear and anger, you will be more peaceful, and you will be able to tell only the truth to other people. If you think the truth may sometimes be disturbing for others, try to share it with compassion, love, and total understanding.
- Learning to moderate your senses (Brahmacharya) The origin of this word comes from the literal translation of Brahmacharya term, which means ‘walking on God-consciousness,’ so this Yama should refer to renouncing at your inner pleasures and addictions which can take your freedom away and be more aware of your inner self and your overall conscience. This way you will be able to balance and merely moderate your all senses, leading to an entirely controlled person.
To practice this yoga Yama you must choose carefully the magazine and books you read, the films you see and the people around you to free your mind and find the inner peace and joy, without sensual desires and exaggerated senses, things that will merely strength your commitment and your devotion to your life partner and your family and more important, for your inner person and clear conscious.
