Yoga is realizing compassion in us...

Many people asked what is yoga? But they didn't want long explanation. It's understandable that why people don't like long explanation. People who live in the big city have to deal with everything that is so speedy and busy. People want quick answer and fast result. Time is very precious to many people because "TIME = MONEY". There is absolutely nothing wrong with this type of thinking.

What is yoga in short?

Yoga is realizing selflessness and impermanence in all and everything that unfold compassion in the mind.

Yoga is realizing the essence of the existence of all and everything, is selflessness and compassion.

Just like the universal consciousness. Like the sun, the air, the water, the earth and the space.

The mind evolves slowly, patiently, ultimately it will realize the nature of itself, compassion.

Evolving from very selfish to reasonably selfish, to a little selfish, to unselfish, to selflessness, beyond selfishness and unselfishness.

Selfishness creates fear in the mind. Selfishness is the characteristic of the ego.

When the mind identify itself with the ego, there will be a little or some selfishness that hinders the mind from realizing the compassion of itself. Although all minds have certain degrees of compassion (it's because we are compassionate in nature) to feel sympathy and empathy towards other beings who are less fortunate than oneself and those who are in painful sorrow and suffering, but due to the tiny or some selfishness that exist in the mind, the trace of compassion cannot expand to the fullest which is completely unconditional without any discrimination, fear and worry. Selfishness hinders the mind from embracing and love all without discrimination, without selfish intention and expectation, and without fear.

Under the presence of selfless compassion, there is no trace of fear. There is no discrimination of wise beings and ignorant beings, good beings and evil beings. All are the same, selfless and impermanent.

If the mind doesn't have wisdom, it couldn't understand what does "All are the same" really means? It's because the mind sees all and everything with the different qualities of different names and forms, but it couldn't see the truth behind all these different qualities in different names and forms. When there's wisdom, the mind will know what does it means.

Form is not different from emptiness. Emptiness is not different from form.

Selflessness = compassion = fearlessness = unconditional peace = yoga

Be Happy.

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing and non-blind propagating, but be open-minded to inquire the truth of everything. Be free. Be peaceful. Be happy.
