Each day I do some reading from the books by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, founders of the Sri Aurobindo Society in Pondicherry, India.  Today I have read a passage about the soul.  In their writings, what we often refer to as the soul, they are calling “the psychic.”  The psychic is that part within each one of us that sees and understands in a manner that is far beyond what our minds are able to comprehend.  Here is a wonderful passage for you to contemplate.

“Communications from the psychic do not come in a mental form. They are not ideas or reasonings. They have their own character quite distinct from the mind, something like a feeling that comprehends itself and acts.

By it’s very nature, the psychic is calm, quiet and luminous, understanding and generous, wide and progressive. Its constant effort is to understand and progress.

The mind describes and explains. The psychic sees and understands,”

The Mother

LOVE YOUR BACK: 7 tips for back-comfort April 20, 2010

Pain in the back? After years of back pain, I finally found the way to be pain-free most of the time.  Before I share  my thoughts about back care,  it goes without saying that anyone with serious back pain needs to see a physician, as these five tips may not be appropriate for everyone.

One: Realize that each and every one of us living on this earth is a spirit, simply clothed with a physical body, until it is time to shed our physical bodies and return home to the Source of our existence.  Your body is simply the temple that houses your spirit and therefore you must take very good care of your body.

Two:  Face the reality of WHY you have back pain.  For most of us it is not because we have been in a car accident, or injured our backs seriously.  If so, then of course on going medical help is needed.  But for most of us, we are in back pain because we eat too much, exercise too little, and are not conscious of the ways we move our bodies in our daily life.  Most of us are in fact, injuring ourselves.

Three: Once you know why you are having back pain, create a diet, exercise and lifestyle that will keep you pain-free. If you need help creating a plan, see your doctor and get advice on diet and exercise.

Four: Consider getting additional care from a chiropractor and/or acupuncturist.  I have had great results with these complimentary therapies.  My chiropractor. Dr. Robert Gensler,  also offers free classes in back exercises and instructions on how to move. I have learned that the way I get in and out of a car, and the way I move when I get out of a chair is important.

Five: Monitor yourself as you go through your day and like a “movement detective” find out how you are hurting yourself. Are you sitting on a sofa that is too low for you?  Do you need to buy a chair that is more back-friendly? Are you jerking your hips around when you get out of your car?  Pay attention to every move you make for a week, and you may discover how you are hurting yourself.  Once you know, then you can learn how to move properly and avoid self injury.

Six:  Stretch Stretch Stretch, both morning and evening, and through out the day if you have time.  Our muscles get tense as we go through our fast paced lives.  And for those of us who are leading lives that are a bit too slow, stretching is just as important.  Unless there is a good reason for you to sit in a chair for hours, do not sit there. Get up and move. Even if you work in an office behind a computer, get up and stretch every half hour for 30 seconds, or stretch in your chair.

Seven:  Be devoted to a spiritual practice. It does not matter if you are part of a major religion or another kind of spiritual group, or would prefer to read spiritual books on your own.  I have benefited a great deal from reading books by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. You can find their books by visiting www.sriaurobindosociety.org.in As you engage in the spiritual practice of your choice, you will be inspired and motivated to take better care of your body, knowing that it is a temple for your spirit which is a spark of the Divine.

Helpful Words from Sri Aurobindo March 13, 2010

Words by Sri Aurobindo help me in my spiritual evolution.

“In this yoga the whole principle is to open oneself to the Divine Influence. It is there above you and, if you can once become conscious of it, you have then to call it down into you. It descends into the mind and into the body as Peace, as a Light, as a Force that works, as the Presence of the Divine with or without form, as Ananda. Before one has this consciousness, one has to have faith and aspire for the opening. Aspiration, call, prayer are forms of one and the same thing and are all effective; you can take the form that comes to you or is easiest to you. The other way is concentration; you concentrate your consciousness in the heart (some do it in the head or above the head) and meditate on the Mother in the heart and call her in there. One can do either and both at different times – whatever comes naturally to you or you are moved to do at the moment. Especially in the beginning the one great necessity is to get the mind quiet, reject at the time of meditation all thoughts and movements that are foreign to the sadhana. In the quiet mind there will be a progressive preparation for the experience. But you must not become impatient, if all is not done at once; it takes time to bring entire quiet into the mind; you have to go on till the consciousness is ready.”

– Sri Aurobindo [SABCL, 23:604-05]

 

When writing about meditation Sri Aurobindo often refers to  doing “whatever comes naturally to you or you are moved to do at the moment.”  He leaves room for every human being to find their own way of connecting with the Divine.

Spiritual Health Plan March 8, 2010

No matter what our current state of health, we can improve by opening to the forces of Divine Consciousness. And should we be in the last stages of life on earth, opening to the Divine will make our transition to eternal life peaceful.

Following is a quote by a woman who came to be known as the Mother.  When in the physical body, she was a spiritual leader and teacher in India, who is believed by many to continue to have great spiritual influence from her place in the world of spirit.

“It is good to do exercises and to lead a simple and hygienic life, but for the body to be truly perfect, it must open to the divine forces, it must be subject only to the divine influence, it must aspire constantly to realize the Divine.”

The Mother 15: 150 (Founder with Sri Aurobindo of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry)

Finding the Spiritual Path February 8, 2010

Finding our true spiritual path is difficult if we only look at what society and others would ask of us, and we do not look within to the connection each one of us has with the Divine.  While it can take years of spiritual development to get in touch with the voice within, the best place to begin is with a willingness to listen to the inner voice: with an aspiration to become closer to the Divine.

This does not mean that we have to sit on a mountain top and contemplate, but simply be mindful as we go through our daily lives.  It means being mindful as we speak to others. How do we sound? What does our tone of voice sound like? What kind of energy are we extending to others with our tone of voice, words and body language? Are we being kind or irritable?

As we walk the spiritual path, we will find that many activities that used were appealing are no longer exciting.  We will find that some of the people in our lives do not belong with us any longer.   As we make changes in our lives, this does not mean that we have to leave our families or change our jobs unless we are feeling extreme discomfort. We can take our time to understand which life situations can be improved and which situations we need to leave.

I read many books by the Mother, one of the founders of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry India.  I find great wisdom in her words, as I do in the words of the Sri Aurobindo.  Both of these great teachers are in spirit now, but they have left us many words to read and I believe they continue to work with us from the world of spirit.

Here is a quote by the Mother from “The Psychic Being” published by Lotus Press

“If we truly want to progress and acquire the capacity of knowing the truth of our being, that is to say, what we are truly created for, what we can call our mission upon earth, then we must, in a very regular and constant manner, reject from us or eliminate from us whatever contradicts the truth of our existence, whatever is opposed to it.”
