[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 practice 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 anger or even reacted to a particular situation or a person. I realized 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 practice daily and cover at minimum the beginner poses. I have started practicing 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. “
You must read this book if you want to strengthen your Spiritual Journey.
