Write your Life –  Schreibe dein Leben  – January 2021 – Zoom with Sukhananda

Sivananda, Der liebende Herr, hat dir ein unschätzbares Geschenk gegeben, ein strahlendes Jahr, rein und klar wie Kristall, ein Jahr voller Möglichkeiten, dich selbst zu perfektionieren und daran zu arbeiten, allen um dich herum zu helfen und sie zu erheben. Kämpfe jeden Moment hart, um dem Ideal näher zu kommen. Bei jedem Schritt, den Sie unternehmen, müssen Sie sich bei jeder Handlung in Richtung Freiheit, in Richtung Wahrheit, in Richtung Licht bewegen. Machen Sie es sich zum Ziel, Liebe auszustrahlen.

Eine Gruppe von 16 Schülern begrüßte das neue Jahr mit zwei Tagen Yoga, Reflexion und vertiefender Praxis.

Sivananda, The loving Lord has given you a priceless gift, a shining year, pure and clear as crystal, a year teeming with opportunities of perfecting yourself as well as working to help and elevate all those around you. Struggle hard every moment to get nearer to the Ideal. Every step you take, through every act you do, you must move towards Freedom, towards Truth, towards Light. Make it a point to radiate love.
