Enlightenment in the Body
July 06, 2015 09:09 AM PDT
To be awake, to be enlightened, is to be fully and completely embodied. To be fully at one with who we are, in every respect, including our physical being, our emotions, and the totality of our karmic situation.
Listen to a Drishti Point Yoga Podcast with Director of Dharma Ocean, Dr. Reggie Ray. Reggie speaks about the modern alienation of the body, the importance of connecting to the Earth as a way of grounding and finding inner calm, and developing sensitivity to and connection with the Earth as a living being as a part of our spiritual evolution.Jivanmukti Yoga

As a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings, Jivamukti Yoga is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as “seat, connection” – relationship to the Earth. Earth implies all of life. Citing Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, which states that asana should be sthira and sukham, Jivamukti Yoga maintains that one’s relationship to others (asana) should be mutually beneficial and come from a consistent (sthira) place of joy and happiness (sukham). This is a radical idea that, when put into practice, can dismantle our present culture, which is based on the notion that the Earth and all other animals exist for our benefit and to be exploited for our own selfish purposes. So the practice of asana becomes more than mere physical exercise to keep one’s body fit or to increase strength or flexibility; it becomes a way to improve one’s relationship to all others and thus lead to enlightenment – the dissolution of the sense of separateness, the realization of the oneness of being, the discovery of lasting happiness.
