Blessed yogis, hello and welcome to today’s post. Thanks for visiting and I wish you a joyful and peaceful life.
Over the last couple of posts, I have spoken about my “bedtime routine” and value of sleep, rest and meditation in my daily life. Today, I would like to introduce you to the yogic teachings about sleep.
In yoga, “sleep” has a different connotation from our everyday meaning of sleep. It relates, in essence to your level of awareness and awakening into the eternal question of “Who Am I?”
Most of my understandings and philosophical discussions of yoga come from time spent in satsang – meditating and listening to the words of my teachers and other wise ones.
What is Satsang?
Satsang is a Sanskrit word and can be broken down into “sat” (truth) and “sang” (company) and as every devoted yogi knows, we learn at the feet of our teachers and by listening and meditating in the company of other spiritual practitioners.
Born Into Sleep-Slowly Waking Up
In today’s post, I would like to invite you to satsang as we listen to the above video where Mooji share his understandings about “sleep”. The video – Born into Sleep-Slowly Waking Up is about 8 minutes long. I recommend before you tune in, you allow yourself time and space to breathe and to listen with your inner heart to the teachings.
I’d love to hear your views and thoughts about your understanding of Mooji’s take on sleep and awakening. Feel free to share your insights in the comment box below. And if you feel your friends will also benefit from this knowledge, kindly email them this post or share the link via your favourite social media icon below.
Take special care of you and remember how marvellous you are.
