Lesson 75 - Siddhasana – Living in a fountain of ecstasy

From: Yogani
Date: Fri Jan 9, 2004 2:35pm

New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why This Discussion?"

Okay, we are ready to move on to some more advanced yoga practices. 

We are crossing over here into practices that are decidedly more aggressive. Before taking on any of these, it is essential that you be stable in the practices previously undertaken. If you jump right into these new practices without meditation, pranayama, and the rest very comfortably in place, not much good will come of it. Make sure you are in tune with your unique time line. You may spend years in the other practices before you feel ready for these very advanced yoga practices coming up, and that is perfectly all right. Rome was not built in a day. 

By "aggressive," we mean more focused on stimulating prana in the body. While this means more pure bliss consciousness moving and more ecstasy coming up in us, it also means more purification in the nervous system. More purification means more stuff loosening and coming out from inside, and discomfort is possible. Always gauge your practices and lifestyle to keep at a stable rate of purification. We are always looking to balance our routine so it results in maximum spiritual progress while maintaining smoothness in daily life. How we feel outside practices during the day is the best measure. This has been said over and over, and can't be said enough. It is a fact of life for anyone seriously treading the path of yoga. You could call it the fine art of housecleaning without making a mess. 

Having said all that, let's delve into it. 

If you are still bright-eyed and bushy-tailed after all we have been through so far, you will be a natural for what is coming up. And you will love every minute of it. Either that, or you will be crying, "This is outrageous!" Maybe you will be doing both at the same time – loving the outrageous...
