In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”
The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”
The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”
The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”
“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”
The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”
The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”
Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”
To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”

There is a spiritual world beyond this material world where we live in.

Yogic Jogging – a quick fix

Yogic Jogging an effective way to energize and vitalize your whole body into action.

In this video Swami Ramdev shows how 10-12 minutes of Yogic Jogging consisting of 12 simple poses gives full exercise to the body, you’ll feel calm, relaxed and rejuvenated. Plus, yoga provides an array of health benefits that improve your daily life. Like; Yoga reduces inflammation and oxidative stress (which helps minimize signs of aging), boosts “feel-good” chemicals in the brain, strengthen immunity, improves posture, combats depression, and increases energy levels.

Yogic jogging is my vacation and travel yoga routine, after just 10 minutes of yoga, I have more energy, my concentration improves, overall I feel lighter and guilt free.

vata-pitta--kapha

I came upon this Tridosha website about what type of a person I am from Ayurvedic perspective.

What are Ayurvedic doshas?

As per Ayurvedic philosophy, it is known that the universe is made up of five elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether. These are the vital energies that make up our physical and mental constitution These elements are represented in human body by three doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The balance of these doshas governs the health and well-being of the individual.

What are these three doshas?

  • Vata pertains to air and ether elements. This energy is generally seen as the force, which directs nerve impulses, circulation, respiration, and elimination.
  • Kapha pertains to water and earth elements. Kapha is responsible for growth and protection. The mucous lining of the stomach, and the cerebral-spinal fluid that protects the brain and spinal column are examples of kapha.
  • Pitta pertains to fire and water elements. This dosha governs metabolism, e.g., the transformation of foods into nutrients. Pitta is also responsible for metabolism in the organ and tissue systems.

How can they be cured or balanced?

  • Ayurvedic treatments are primarily dietary and herbal.
  • Ayurvedic massages
  • Yoga (Yoga has the treatment and answers to all problems – physical and mental)
  • Lifestyle changes (mainly for vata predominant people)
