Cleansing the memory is the idea

what is an idea, a concept, a shape in the mind.
what is Tapas/ practice, the work, that transforms the shape of mind to reality.

The universe will keep giving you lessons until you get it right. I believe that life is a spiritual learning experience. We are here to evolve and grow and learn our lessons. Sometimes we get carried away with external form and judge ourselves harshly over mistakes that we’d made. I know I do. In fact, prior to this interaction, I was reflecting on my past reactions to victimization, gaslighting, spiritual bypassing and other power struggles. When I asked myself if I was ready to forgive myself for my own shortcoming, the answer that I got was simply no. The reason why was that I felt quite simply “stupid, stupid and more stupid.” I felt stupid for thinking that I could somehow work everything out to a win-win all the time. I felt stupid for thinking I was responsible and I can change everything.

Here’s what I’m sitting with now—sitting with conflict, irresolution and difficulty are a vital part of the spiritual path. The “dark” feelings can not be rushed or swept away with a few happy affirmations and self-help quotes. Like all things, they are impermanent too. Sooner or later, this too shall also pass.

Cleansing the memory is the idea, for an average person memory is the past state of mind, for a yogi it is the present state of mind, by sorting out the memory we allow new experiences to surface, the whole of useful past is now at the present. a cleansed memory does not contain undigested emotion. Your job is not to try and make things change sooner than they naturally would. Emotions and feelings are like the weather. Your job is to be fully present, watch and enjoy the performance in the sky without ever getting lost in it.

what I learned in Asnans, it enables us to turn the shape of our visions into the substance of our life, Asana practice brings mind and body to harmony, creating awareness of self, when the awareness is linked with the intelligence we are able to to see the absolute honesty.
Tapas is the key.
what is Tapas/ practice, the work, that transforms the shape of mind to reality.
what is an idea, a concept, a shape in the mind.
what is imagination, is the flame, showers light to reveal the shapes in the mind.

Only a cleansed mind can imagine, the imagination showcases idea and the practice/ tapas transforms ideas into reality.
