War, Nature, Peace, Power

Nature. We are nature and we are part of nature, though nature is not necessarily us. Re-emphasising and re-recognising that wonderful fact puts us all on the proper road to a balanced internal ecology, an Ecology of the Soul.

But Nature is also War, and War, in many ways, is Nature. It’s certainly our nature. So how do we reconcile this movement towards peace and harmony (which is also nature) with the inevitable reality of conflict and suffering? Do we have to fight for peace, which, as the old adage has it, is like f*****g for virginity?

Maybe we do. But if we do, we should certainly hang on to our essentially peaceful and powerful selves while we do. Keep ourselves open to that truth; peace is power. The daily struggle is from a position of power. That way, we win.

About Aidan

The Ecology of the Soul is the culmination of a lifetime of study and practice of hatha yoga and Raj Yoga. Aidan studied with BKS Iyengar, and was a dedicated member of the Brahma Kumaris, teachers of Raja Yoga, during his 20s. The basic understanding of the Soul and God is pure Raja Yoga, but it is the 'ecology' principle that drives the system's emphasis on balancing our spiritual powers. We return to our natural state of happiness, contentment, peace – and power.
