UK Retreat, June 2012: With Swami Veda Bharati and Swami Nityamuktananda
When we begin to realise life is about perspective - Is the moon above us or below us? - it depends which planet you are standing on and which moon you are talking about! jokes Swamiji
When we begin to realise there is more to this universe than us and more universes than just this one.
When we begin to realise we are one spec (one spark) and only here for such a short time in this form, in this universe, in this Cosmos within Cosmos - life continues on with us and without us.
Perhaps when we have such realisations we start to Let Go, Let Go, Let Go

Swami Veda invites you, wherever you are, to sit with him in meditation for the Full Moon Meditation on November 28, 2012.
"Yoga Philosophy views the mind as Universal field; its waves passing through us and becoming our individual minds. This Universal mind is a radiant force and is also known as a Universal Guru within. When all sit together at the same time even in different parts of the world, they connect to the Universal Guru mind and generate a strong field, like so many magnets being joined together and forming a much stronger magnet; the strength of each then equals the combined strength of all. Thus it is when we join together in meditation, and together enter the Guru-mind's Field. On certain days of the year the Wave of Beauty and the Wave of Bliss flows very strong. These are the sacred days. I have set special times on all Full Moon Days in the coming months to sit in meditation with you. Please join me at the time. Let us link together in this awakening into interior serenity." - Swami Veda Bharati

As you walk on the path of yoga changes occur in you. First you realize, you begin to realize that there is something changeable in you, and changes occur in you. Your body language changes. There is no more uncertainty in your body language. There's no more demonstration of conflict in your body language. One shoulder this way, one shoulder that way. That will stop. Neck sometime this way, sometime that way, sometime that way, sometime that way. That will change. Your body language will become balanced. That change occurs.
I have here somewhere a secret Himalayan herbal cream. Rub that everyday. You will have less wrinkles on your face. It's an invisible cream and it's for free. The less wrinkles form on your face as you progress spiritually. That change occurs.
You become more and more a neutral observer of events. Events in your body, events in your surroundings so that you become a neutral observer of your own illnesses and pains and thereby you learn the art of self healing. These are just a few examples I am giving.
The more someone scowls the more you smile. That change occurs in you. Your voice becomes softer and therefore more effective because it invokes the response of a yes from the listener. Just yoga postures in the spa will not give you that. It's a start, some sort of a start. You become less prone to anger, more prone to compassion. You begin to take the side of your opponent and explain your opponent to others. You begin to explain your opponent to others.
Faith and determination are two essential rungs on the ladder of enlightenment.
Without them enlightenment can never be realized. Without faith we can attain some degree of intellectual knowledge, but only with faith can we see into the most subtle chambers of our being.
Determination is the power that sees us through all frustrations and obstacles. It helps in building the will power that is the very basis of success within and without. It is said in the scriptures that with the help of sankalpa shakti, the power of determination, nothing is impossible.
