Magic Minute #1

OK, everything in this category will take you a minute or so to read, maybe 67 seconds or even 73, but not much longer than that. The point being that the Ecology of the Soul proposes a minute’s meditation, simply because getting into the habit, even the idea, of meditation,  usually fails on the time issue. I don’t have time, we don’t have time, no one has time to do what they need to do (which begs an entirely nother question). The ‘Magic Minute’ is the space in time you allot yourself, often without having to make a special slot for it. You can give yourself a minute while you’re waiting for a bus, even while you’re waiting for the kettle to boil (did you only put in one cup’s worth of water?). You can even get up a minute earlier, which can’t be that hard. Just make this 60 seconds as precious and valuable as you can, and maintain complete concentration on one thought, one experience, one idea, which leads you towards Self knowledge and Self realization. (Are they the same thing? Maybe not.) Plant Power Seeds, the seeds of powerful, peaceful thoughts that will grow in your Mind, take root, flourish, and change your behaviour. If that’s what you want. And who doesn’t? If not your behaviour, then your state of mind. Oops. Minute’s up.

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.
