Magic Minute #2: Insight

Almost every word in the English language – or any language for that matter – can be a trigger for a meditation. Thinking about the process by which we can get people to start exploring what’s going on inside their minds, we immediately find ourselves in the realm of words like ‘vision’, ‘perception’, ‘experience’, etcetera etcetera. Almost all of which mean or have relationship with the idea of sight, of being able to see. As does ‘insight’, although those two unassuming letters at the beginning, like a small door that opens into a very big space, gives the word ‘sight’ a whole nother dimension. Insight is seeing inside, ie seeing the truth under the surface. Not to suggest that the surface is not the Truth; just to suggest that the surface is obviously not the whole Truth, so you better look inside – if you want the Truth, that is, which can be powerful and therefore unsettling.  And guess what, there’s only one thing you can reliably and safely look inside to gain insight; your Self. Next step: this is not about the workings of your Mind, apart from insights into what happens when you park it. More to come. Enjoy.

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.
