Sat Chit Ananda
Updated: Feb 11
Take care of your Self, let the world take care of itself. See your Self. If you are the body there is the gross world also. if you are the Spirit, all is Spirit alone.
Mind turned outwards, it becomes the ego and all the world. The one is real, the many are mare names and forms. But the mind does not exist apart from the Self, that is, it has no independent existence. The Self exists without the mind, never the mind without the Self." - Ramana Maharshi"
Yoga is not about achievements, progress, expansion, nor about perfecting ones' body.
One is not a character in a video game in need to develop superpowers in order to reach the tenth level, or become a perfect "... nist" or "vegan", rallying from achievement to another to please some heavenly father in the sky or stand out as a "good" citizen to make an impact in front of other people.
It is only the monkey mind that wants to grab one branch after another, and the ego - taking selfies on the top of the mountain in various poses, "for being proud or guilty of one's habits".
The teachings of the enlightened (aware) suggest completely the opposite - ones' true nature is sat, chit, ananda (immortal, limitless truth itself).

The purpose of Yoga is originally to calm the monkey mind and refrain from endless desires.
Craving for attention and greed usually indicates an underlying lack of something, a general feeling of scarcity, also perhaps general feelings of inferiority, of not having enough, or of not being enough, of being of no value (from personal experience of having experience many sessions with various beings under hypnosis).
Furthermore, there is no such thing as good luck or bad luck - everything is a consequence of one's previous actions, referred to in yogic teachings as karma.
Hereby a quote from the awareness of yogi Ramana Maharshi: "You take yourself to be what you are not and try to solve a problem which is not there, and therefore there cannot be any solution to the problem other than the recognition that the original conclusions about yourself are wrong. The problem is unreal and therefore any number of pursuits will not solve a non-existent problem, hence all human pursuits fail miserably."

Spirituality comes from the word Spirit - that is our true nature.
Spirit also referred to as the Absolute (not referring to soul nor body) needs nothing, it is complete. Ones' ideas of oneself as mortal (female or male, alien etc), relying on the mind, and endless desires are the culmination of chaos and disruptions on current Earth.
The Guardian published a few days ago, that the amount of materials consumed by humanity has passed 100bn tonnes every year, and the proportion being recycled is falling.
Just like the examples from recent publications, it is evident that most developments from the mind and scientists are destroying simplicity, pure nature, the innocent beauty on Earth.
Socrates said, "I know that I do not know. Can it be ignorance? It is wisdom."
The original purpose of Yoga is about being and connecting with the inner.
Not expansion of the ego, nor mind, nor living in a world of idealistic fantasies and self-delusion of becoming a better someone or something, or becoming selfless.
According to Ramana Maharshi:
"The Self is always realized. It is not necessary to seek to realize what is already and always realized. For you cannot deny your own existence. That existence is consciousness, the Self. Unless you exist you cannot ask questions. So you must admit your own existence. That existence is the Self. It is already realized. Therefore the effort to realize results only in your realizing your present mistake - that you have not realized your Self. There is no fresh realization. The Self becomes revealed. There is no time for the Self. Time arises as an idea after the ego arises. Were it true that you realize it later it means that you are not realized now. The absence of realization in the present moment may be repeated at any moment in the future for time is infinite. So too, such a realization is impermanent. You are the SELF beyond time and space. It is wrong to consider realization to be impermanent. It is the true eternal state which cannot change."
Being responsible for one's actions is only relevant since every action has a consequence.
That is why the wisdom of yogis is - rather do less than more, cause one may only create more karma for oneself, depending on the level of awareness...
Quoting another enlightened (aware) yogi Nisargadatta Maharaj:
"When all the knowledge including yourself (ego) is liquidated then you are liberated. As the absolute I have no experience of myself. I as the absolute do not need this consciousness. On your not knowing state suddenly the knowingness has appeared and created all the mischief. I'm before anything can happen. Knowledge is ignorance. It has a beginning and an end. Had it been real it would have been eternal. You are changeless and permanent. You have no beginning and no end.
Go back to the original state before this consciousness came upon you. The one who is listening, and you do not know, is you. Without the body-sense I'm perfect, total and complete."
