1
00:00:04,220 –> 00:00:06,960
hi this is Joelle I’m here of course the

2
00:00:06,960 –> 00:00:08,970
lovely purple Valley and this time I’m

3
00:00:08,970 –> 00:00:10,950
here with John Scott again and it’s just

4
00:00:10,950 –> 00:00:12,570
such a great pleasure to be here with

5
00:00:12,570 –> 00:00:13,950
you and have a chance to talk to you

6
00:00:13,950 –> 00:00:17,039
again and the first thing I wanted to

7
00:00:17,039 –> 00:00:18,619
ask you a course and I know this is a

8
00:00:18,619 –> 00:00:21,210
subject of yours and something that I

9
00:00:21,210 –> 00:00:24,300
find difficulty in identifying with so

10
00:00:24,300 –> 00:00:26,070
that’s sort of interest for me too is

11
00:00:26,070 –> 00:00:29,699
there the moon and how it affects our

12
00:00:29,699 –> 00:00:33,600
practice and because for myself I’m a

13
00:00:33,600 –> 00:00:36,059
lot the time unaware of what the moon is

14
00:00:36,059 –> 00:00:39,270
doing I mean I do have days where I’ve

15
00:00:39,270 –> 00:00:40,800
got lots of energy and days where I

16
00:00:40,800 –> 00:00:42,120
haven’t and I just might practice

17
00:00:42,120 –> 00:00:45,090
accordingly but I’m not always aware as

18
00:00:45,090 –> 00:00:47,910
to what the moon phase is but I know

19
00:00:47,910 –> 00:00:49,379
there’s some people that really really

20
00:00:49,379 –> 00:00:52,649
tuned into it and so can you help

21
00:00:52,649 –> 00:00:55,920
enlighten me and any others a little bit

22
00:00:55,920 –> 00:00:59,010
in the dark like me well first do you

23
00:00:59,010 –> 00:01:02,640
thank you for inviting me back to purple

24
00:01:02,640 –> 00:01:06,119
valley interviews yes just being a

25
00:01:06,119 –> 00:01:07,590
signal it’s a privilege to be here now

26
00:01:07,590 –> 00:01:09,479
it’s just fun being with you anyway

27
00:01:09,479 –> 00:01:12,659
thank you and of course purple Valley is

28
00:01:12,659 –> 00:01:15,540
a great venue for me purple Valley is

29
00:01:15,540 –> 00:01:18,570
one of the spaces places where I watched

30
00:01:18,570 –> 00:01:21,810
the moon I’m very lucky to teach it some

31
00:01:21,810 –> 00:01:25,430
beautiful retreats and another one is in

32
00:01:25,430 –> 00:01:27,869
salento southern Italy yeah and the

33
00:01:27,869 –> 00:01:29,909
skies are perfect for moon watching and

34
00:01:29,909 –> 00:01:31,950
it’s because here also because it’s not

35
00:01:31,950 –> 00:01:33,900
a city in because you have access to the

36
00:01:33,900 –> 00:01:36,000
sky more easily or the clarity of the

37
00:01:36,000 –> 00:01:38,100
moon itself I think it’s because there

38
00:01:38,100 –> 00:01:41,280
isn’t the clouds right the weather it’s

39
00:01:41,280 –> 00:01:44,640
more about the weather so first I’ll ask

40
00:01:44,640 –> 00:01:45,450
you Stu

41
00:01:45,450 –> 00:01:48,540
where is the moon right now and it’s

42
00:01:48,540 –> 00:01:49,110
gone

43
00:01:49,110 –> 00:01:52,950
it’s daytime what the phase is it in I

44
00:01:52,950 –> 00:01:55,380
know it’s like about half moon good so

45
00:01:55,380 –> 00:01:56,670
you know it’s half moon you know it’s

46
00:01:56,670 –> 00:01:59,579
gone it’s daytime well of course it’s

47
00:01:59,579 –> 00:02:03,570
daytime you said and obviously our

48
00:02:03,570 –> 00:02:06,360
associations our moon at night Senate

49
00:02:06,360 –> 00:02:10,378
day that’s okay

50
00:02:10,378 –> 00:02:12,480
okay but it doesn’t stay exactly like

51
00:02:12,480 –> 00:02:13,269
that

52
00:02:13,269 –> 00:02:16,430
there is often seeing the moon in the

53
00:02:16,430 –> 00:02:18,260
sky during the daytime I’ve seen it yes

54
00:02:18,260 –> 00:02:20,629
there’s sort of before sunset where you

55
00:02:20,629 –> 00:02:22,969
see both sometimes yes so we will be

56
00:02:22,969 –> 00:02:25,040
seeing the moon tonight or this

57
00:02:25,040 –> 00:02:26,560
afternoon sorry we’re in about probably

58
00:02:26,560 –> 00:02:29,299
two if not three o’clock as early as

59
00:02:29,299 –> 00:02:31,489
that yeah it was going to be slightly

60
00:02:31,489 –> 00:02:33,950
more than a half moon and it’ll be

61
00:02:33,950 –> 00:02:37,189
following it’ll appear to follow the Sun

62
00:02:37,189 –> 00:02:41,239
in its sunset yeah so if we were to

63
00:02:41,239 –> 00:02:43,790
point for the moon for it we’re down

64
00:02:43,790 –> 00:02:45,980
there to be down there somewhere because

65
00:02:45,980 –> 00:02:48,489
it’s going to be coming up in the east

66
00:02:48,489 –> 00:02:50,980
it will appear to come up in the east

67
00:02:50,980 –> 00:02:54,530
cuz for me it’s just like it’s like well

68
00:02:54,530 –> 00:02:57,409
it’s up there the sky yeah and and then

69
00:02:57,409 –> 00:02:58,730
sometimes you go looking for it and it’s

70
00:02:58,730 –> 00:03:01,849
not there it’s there’s a huge here at

71
00:03:01,849 –> 00:03:03,620
Pebble Valley I’m facing the Sharla

72
00:03:03,620 –> 00:03:08,120
wrote so shavasana house is behind me so

73
00:03:08,120 –> 00:03:12,829
to my left is East to my right is West

74
00:03:12,829 –> 00:03:14,750
so I’m already oriented on the planet I

75
00:03:14,750 –> 00:03:17,329
know exactly where I oh yeah okay so and

76
00:03:17,329 –> 00:03:21,709
the Sun is traveling that way so that

77
00:03:21,709 –> 00:03:25,159
must be south yes so this must be normal

78
00:03:25,159 –> 00:03:27,829
okay so the orientation here is that if

79
00:03:27,829 –> 00:03:29,870
you really want to look for the moon you

80
00:03:29,870 –> 00:03:31,669
just need to know what time of the phase

81
00:03:31,669 –> 00:03:35,000
you said the moon’s at so it’s that just

82
00:03:35,000 –> 00:03:37,549
passed it’s half moon phase it will be a

83
00:03:37,549 –> 00:03:39,829
rising in the east but because the Sun

84
00:03:39,829 –> 00:03:41,870
will be midday one o’clock two o’clock

85
00:03:41,870 –> 00:03:44,959
it is so bright so let’s first look at

86
00:03:44,959 –> 00:03:49,729
the Sun and make that daytime we’re on a

87
00:03:49,729 –> 00:03:53,930
big sphere ball spinning in an

88
00:03:53,930 –> 00:03:55,969
anti-clockwise direction which is

89
00:03:55,969 –> 00:03:59,509
easterly at their parent Li and miles an

90
00:03:59,509 –> 00:04:02,479
hour the float yeah talk through and so

91
00:04:02,479 –> 00:04:05,180
as we turn anti-clockwise it appears

92
00:04:05,180 –> 00:04:08,599
that the Sun arises in the east and sets

93
00:04:08,599 –> 00:04:11,750
in the west but we’re turning to daytime

94
00:04:11,750 –> 00:04:13,549
looking at the center of our solar

95
00:04:13,549 –> 00:04:14,409
system

96
00:04:14,409 –> 00:04:17,719
so our face is facing the center of the

97
00:04:17,719 –> 00:04:20,089
solar system during daytime as we turn

98
00:04:20,089 –> 00:04:23,080
away still turning anti-clockwise at

99
00:04:23,080 –> 00:04:26,180
sunset where our shoulders just

100
00:04:26,180 –> 00:04:28,310
passing the Sun and then we start

101
00:04:28,310 –> 00:04:30,440
looking to the outer reaches of our

102
00:04:30,440 –> 00:04:33,380
solar system grow so during the daytime

103
00:04:33,380 –> 00:04:35,780
like say you are the Sun you’re so

104
00:04:35,780 –> 00:04:39,110
bright I can’t see anything around you

105
00:04:39,110 –> 00:04:42,229
other than you and our atmosphere so I

106
00:04:42,229 –> 00:04:45,080
can’t see the the constellations behind

107
00:04:45,080 –> 00:04:48,830
you the stars behind you if we turned

108
00:04:48,830 –> 00:04:51,080
you out then yes I would

109
00:04:51,080 –> 00:04:53,120
so it’s a little bit like the stunned

110
00:04:53,120 –> 00:04:55,789
rabbit thing driving yeah and the

111
00:04:55,789 –> 00:04:57,800
headlights so if the moon is close to

112
00:04:57,800 –> 00:05:00,889
you very close to you can’t see it so

113
00:05:00,889 –> 00:05:03,680
let’s go straight to full moon full

114
00:05:03,680 –> 00:05:06,889
moons going to be opposite the Sun isn’t

115
00:05:06,889 –> 00:05:10,220
it yep so we make me earth and I’m

116
00:05:10,220 –> 00:05:14,180
looking at you at the Sun they’re just

117
00:05:14,180 –> 00:05:16,970
full midday for me yeah okay but let’s

118
00:05:16,970 –> 00:05:18,289
say the moon’s going to come up I’m

119
00:05:18,289 –> 00:05:20,210
going to be have to be facing over to

120
00:05:20,210 –> 00:05:23,660
the east as it’s rising because it’s

121
00:05:23,660 –> 00:05:25,400
going to be completely opposite yeah and

122
00:05:25,400 –> 00:05:29,780
every full moon is a potential lunar

123
00:05:29,780 –> 00:05:32,330
eclipse okay so how does that work

124
00:05:32,330 –> 00:05:34,430
because I guess we’re all sort of tuned

125
00:05:34,430 –> 00:05:37,699
in with a solar eclipse yeah two Z’s op

126
00:05:37,699 –> 00:05:40,190
opposite so let’s do the solar eclipse

127
00:05:40,190 –> 00:05:41,539
because we’re tuned into the solar

128
00:05:41,539 –> 00:05:45,139
eclipse the solar eclipses is for me

129
00:05:45,139 –> 00:05:47,720
posture free breathing looking place

130
00:05:47,720 –> 00:05:50,150
from kitabi joy so Guruji’s your

131
00:05:50,150 –> 00:05:52,580
postural thing if I sit to the side to

132
00:05:52,580 –> 00:05:57,560
the camera if I sit like this yes then

133
00:05:57,560 –> 00:06:00,440
let’s say my head is the Sun if my head

134
00:06:00,440 –> 00:06:02,599
is the Sun it’s shining down here this

135
00:06:02,599 –> 00:06:05,270
is sort of like being in the past maybe

136
00:06:05,270 –> 00:06:09,110
doubt maybe worry- reflectivity reverie

137
00:06:09,110 –> 00:06:13,940
yeah my heart’s behind the light okay

138
00:06:13,940 –> 00:06:16,240
and you can almost see I’ve had too many

139
00:06:16,240 –> 00:06:19,310
Kingfisher Ultra us no weight is bearing

140
00:06:19,310 –> 00:06:22,909
down on you okay then the opposite is if

141
00:06:22,909 –> 00:06:27,500
I sit like this a bit like the English

142
00:06:27,500 –> 00:06:32,740
do with the nose up here this is sort of

143
00:06:32,740 –> 00:06:36,080
this is the opposite we could say this

144
00:06:36,080 –> 00:06:37,580
is a little bit like loser

145
00:06:37,580 –> 00:06:39,889
yeah the system’s against me yeah

146
00:06:39,889 –> 00:06:44,479
okay there’s nothing in it for me where

147
00:06:44,479 –> 00:06:47,569
this is what’s in it for me

148
00:06:47,569 –> 00:06:50,180
what am I going to achieve being the top

149
00:06:50,180 –> 00:06:52,879
of the class a little bit too perky a

150
00:06:52,879 –> 00:06:54,969
little bit too much this is no effort

151
00:06:54,969 –> 00:06:59,169
this is fully automatic out of balance

152
00:06:59,169 –> 00:07:03,169
this is becoming rajasic for getting

153
00:07:03,169 –> 00:07:05,509
some more life and fire in there and

154
00:07:05,509 –> 00:07:08,479
this would be overly Vij’s ik this is

155
00:07:08,479 –> 00:07:12,080
too much effort effort effortless yeah

156
00:07:12,080 –> 00:07:15,500
or this is the yin and this would be the

157
00:07:15,500 –> 00:07:20,240
yang okay so I also agree with the I

158
00:07:20,240 –> 00:07:22,810
disagree with the yin yoga

159
00:07:22,810 –> 00:07:25,400
title it’s just a title and a brand and

160
00:07:25,400 –> 00:07:28,159
very good commercial for selling but you

161
00:07:28,159 –> 00:07:31,939
cannot have a yen practice unless you’re

162
00:07:31,939 –> 00:07:33,919
completely bolstered up which we might

163
00:07:33,919 –> 00:07:35,960
as well do on our moon day on our moon

164
00:07:35,960 –> 00:07:38,180
practice do a yen practice yes

165
00:07:38,180 –> 00:07:41,029
definitely on moon day on dark moon day

166
00:07:41,029 –> 00:07:43,219
be out there bolstering with your male

167
00:07:43,219 –> 00:07:45,919
or female be restoring yourself you’ve

168
00:07:45,919 –> 00:07:47,839
got plenty of Earth’s supporting you and

169
00:07:47,839 –> 00:07:50,389
then you’re relaxing into the posture if

170
00:07:50,389 –> 00:07:53,180
you’re doing a two dimensional pose who

171
00:07:53,180 –> 00:07:56,180
you’re standing upright then postures

172
00:07:56,180 –> 00:07:58,069
are a relationship through your breath

173
00:07:58,069 –> 00:08:00,379
to gravity and you have to be active you

174
00:08:00,379 –> 00:08:02,509
have to be act you need Bunder so you

175
00:08:02,509 –> 00:08:05,270
need bandha and bandha let’s say is the

176
00:08:05,270 –> 00:08:07,819
subtle energy that actually does have a

177
00:08:07,819 –> 00:08:10,759
fiscal physical relationship and you’re

178
00:08:10,759 –> 00:08:13,550
needing a toning in your body and so you

179
00:08:13,550 –> 00:08:16,250
need to actually work so there is

180
00:08:16,250 –> 00:08:18,560
working in involves but you’ve got to

181
00:08:18,560 –> 00:08:20,469
find the balance the balance between

182
00:08:20,469 –> 00:08:23,990
between let’s say Rajas and Tamas so if

183
00:08:23,990 –> 00:08:25,460
we get the balance between Rajas and

184
00:08:25,460 –> 00:08:28,490
Tamas where do we get the set for the

185
00:08:28,490 –> 00:08:31,399
Eluned quality.you so let’s say this is

186
00:08:31,399 –> 00:08:36,679
like Future past loser winner or selfish

187
00:08:36,679 –> 00:08:40,640
gain okay with a little grit and so but

188
00:08:40,640 –> 00:08:42,620
here if you put this heart right in the

189
00:08:42,620 –> 00:08:46,220
limelight okay you can you almost read

190
00:08:46,220 –> 00:08:49,089
through personal posture which people do

191
00:08:49,089 –> 00:08:50,950
minds

192
00:08:50,950 –> 00:08:53,650
where the mind is here and where the

193
00:08:53,650 –> 00:08:54,610
mind is here

194
00:08:54,610 –> 00:08:58,690
so I’ve digressed we were talking many

195
00:08:58,690 –> 00:09:02,080
times I imagine as we’re talking about

196
00:09:02,080 –> 00:09:04,450
the solar eclipse yes

197
00:09:04,450 –> 00:09:08,560
hatha yoga hatha yoga is the balance

198
00:09:08,560 –> 00:09:10,840
between Sun moon energies to get into

199
00:09:10,840 –> 00:09:12,850
the shoe Shuman of the pulsar the center

200
00:09:12,850 –> 00:09:17,110
star this is let’s say the hata yoga is

201
00:09:17,110 –> 00:09:18,610
out of balance here isn’t it there’s no

202
00:09:18,610 –> 00:09:20,470
Sun Moon and everything’s collapsed all

203
00:09:20,470 –> 00:09:23,890
those lovely channels are squashed and

204
00:09:23,890 –> 00:09:26,260
then over here maybe I’m going to burst

205
00:09:26,260 –> 00:09:29,800
them you know Guruji was talking about

206
00:09:29,800 –> 00:09:32,860
the Nadi’s and when he described it to

207
00:09:32,860 –> 00:09:34,690
me he didn’t describe them as beautiful

208
00:09:34,690 –> 00:09:38,140
flowers you know an arrangement of her

209
00:09:38,140 –> 00:09:40,540
these these lotus flowers up the center

210
00:09:40,540 –> 00:09:42,820
line or the score of your body yes he

211
00:09:42,820 –> 00:09:47,340
described them as knots as blockages and

212
00:09:47,340 –> 00:09:50,620
so the paradox is you do a marici earth

213
00:09:50,620 –> 00:09:53,590
in Adi Tai your physical body into a

214
00:09:53,590 –> 00:09:56,230
knot to untie the knots there so it’s

215
00:09:56,230 –> 00:09:58,720
almost like by tying it you know then

216
00:09:58,720 –> 00:10:00,640
how to release well as you been in Flex

217
00:10:00,640 –> 00:10:02,710
the structural body as you know Stu you

218
00:10:02,710 –> 00:10:04,840
are also bending and flexing the energy

219
00:10:04,840 –> 00:10:08,560
body yeah okay so the check it’s a

220
00:10:08,560 –> 00:10:10,390
series is all about arms and legs

221
00:10:10,390 –> 00:10:12,880
supporting the spine it’s all structural

222
00:10:12,880 –> 00:10:16,270
and the most structural pose of primary

223
00:10:16,270 –> 00:10:18,670
series is downward dog four limbs

224
00:10:18,670 –> 00:10:21,310
supporting the spine yes and so we are

225
00:10:21,310 –> 00:10:23,410
getting to the gateways of the armpits

226
00:10:23,410 –> 00:10:26,110
and the and the hips that’s where I come

227
00:10:26,110 –> 00:10:27,880
up with the terms ampere Bunder and

228
00:10:27,880 –> 00:10:30,220
groin bandha right because you got to

229
00:10:30,220 –> 00:10:32,200
get understanding knows before you get

230
00:10:32,200 –> 00:10:35,470
to those flowers in the center yeah yeah

231
00:10:35,470 –> 00:10:38,380
which then elbows elbows and knees no

232
00:10:38,380 –> 00:10:40,540
locking elbows if you lock elbows lock

233
00:10:40,540 –> 00:10:43,080
knees there’s no flow between earth

234
00:10:43,080 –> 00:10:45,100
through those you lose the connection

235
00:10:45,100 –> 00:10:47,050
lose the connection the water elements

236
00:10:47,050 –> 00:10:49,300
shut off I get strapped up here or

237
00:10:49,300 –> 00:10:51,130
trapped down there and of course it’s

238
00:10:51,130 –> 00:10:52,600
going to cause pain and suffering in the

239
00:10:52,600 –> 00:10:55,570
body so I would call them AB under as

240
00:10:55,570 –> 00:10:58,480
well or let’s call them chakras right

241
00:10:58,480 –> 00:11:01,510
because we know that there is many in

242
00:11:01,510 –> 00:11:04,180
the Indian system Mumma they call the

243
00:11:04,180 –> 00:11:05,259
mama

244
00:11:05,259 –> 00:11:09,250
yeah a whole network and I always like

245
00:11:09,250 –> 00:11:11,350
to joke too because in Guruji’s anatomy

246
00:11:11,350 –> 00:11:13,660
only once did he ever say to me about

247
00:11:13,660 –> 00:11:15,970
the skeleton and he said to me that

248
00:11:15,970 –> 00:11:20,550
after 1000 repetitions of chick Itza or

249
00:11:20,550 –> 00:11:23,079
three years of chick Itza

250
00:11:23,079 –> 00:11:25,779
my body would be structurally lined left

251
00:11:25,779 –> 00:11:29,139
and right spine without any particular

252
00:11:29,139 –> 00:11:31,839
emphasis on one thing or the other do

253
00:11:31,839 –> 00:11:34,480
all of the postures of circuits a series

254
00:11:34,480 –> 00:11:36,399
so far then translate your kids are a

255
00:11:36,399 –> 00:11:39,670
structure the my skeletal structure is

256
00:11:39,670 –> 00:11:41,889
aligned in aligning my skeletal

257
00:11:41,889 –> 00:11:45,100
structure I’m also doing ligament

258
00:11:45,100 –> 00:11:46,410
tendons muscles

259
00:11:46,410 –> 00:11:50,079
okay veins nervous system obviously we

260
00:11:50,079 –> 00:11:51,550
got to get into the nervous system so

261
00:11:51,550 –> 00:11:54,339
let’s say these armpits and limbs are

262
00:11:54,339 –> 00:11:57,040
about getting into the nervous system

263
00:11:57,040 –> 00:11:59,050
eventually but we don’t get into that

264
00:11:59,050 –> 00:12:02,470
until now – odana second series so if

265
00:12:02,470 –> 00:12:03,939
let’s say first series is all about

266
00:12:03,939 –> 00:12:09,009
structure and the learning anatomical

267
00:12:09,009 –> 00:12:13,319
terms like flexion extension okay

268
00:12:13,319 –> 00:12:17,050
rotation side flexion medial lateral and

269
00:12:17,050 –> 00:12:18,850
it becomes a whole combination of all

270
00:12:18,850 –> 00:12:19,389
them

271
00:12:19,389 –> 00:12:22,300
and most of the primary series postures

272
00:12:22,300 –> 00:12:23,500
and standing postures are all either

273
00:12:23,500 –> 00:12:27,970
geometric shapes or anatomical names one

274
00:12:27,970 –> 00:12:30,699
or two dedications to a few sages yes

275
00:12:30,699 –> 00:12:32,589
and then there’s only the turtle going

276
00:12:32,589 –> 00:12:36,000
back to the womb baby yep there is a

277
00:12:36,000 –> 00:12:39,189
rooster in there and then there’s a

278
00:12:39,189 –> 00:12:44,110
bridge all the rest anatomical name like

279
00:12:44,110 –> 00:12:46,259
Genosha asana yeah paschimottanasana

280
00:12:46,259 –> 00:12:49,480
yeah they’re all relating to the body

281
00:12:49,480 –> 00:12:51,939
we’re in the second series you get into

282
00:12:51,939 –> 00:12:55,420
animals yes a big way and her big way so

283
00:12:55,420 –> 00:12:57,130
primary series are taking you really

284
00:12:57,130 –> 00:12:59,680
back to into the womb to start all over

285
00:12:59,680 –> 00:13:02,350
again and then of course the first seat

286
00:13:02,350 –> 00:13:04,120
that we really arrive in as a baby’s

287
00:13:04,120 –> 00:13:05,290
body konasana

288
00:13:05,290 –> 00:13:08,350
so you do take half a series to go back

289
00:13:08,350 –> 00:13:11,980
to the beginning and then you start from

290
00:13:11,980 –> 00:13:13,649
baddha konasana

291
00:13:13,649 –> 00:13:18,250
the practice for me by decoding oh yeah

292
00:13:18,250 –> 00:13:20,230
and then setup Anderson as the bridge

293
00:13:20,230 –> 00:13:22,930
into those second series postures but

294
00:13:22,930 –> 00:13:25,000
interestingly enough those second series

295
00:13:25,000 –> 00:13:26,830
postures are very much going back to

296
00:13:26,830 –> 00:13:28,990
baby lying on the ground all that

297
00:13:28,990 –> 00:13:30,910
shallow bus and that’s all baby stuff

298
00:13:30,910 –> 00:13:33,760
that’s another interview Steve I’ve

299
00:13:33,760 –> 00:13:36,940
digress out the whole series of 20

300
00:13:36,940 –> 00:13:40,270
interviews going of so anyway I have it

301
00:13:40,270 –> 00:13:42,190
back to the moon I have in the clearest

302
00:13:42,190 –> 00:13:47,290
yet the Eclipse so the Eclipse is when

303
00:13:47,290 –> 00:13:50,170
the Sun and the moon and Earth are in a

304
00:13:50,170 –> 00:13:53,680
special alignment three celestial bodies

305
00:13:53,680 –> 00:13:59,890
or aligned Center to Center so because

306
00:13:59,890 –> 00:14:02,110
of my design background and my

307
00:14:02,110 –> 00:14:04,420
playfulness the reason I wanted to go

308
00:14:04,420 –> 00:14:06,010
back to baddha konasana back into the

309
00:14:06,010 –> 00:14:08,020
womb is before we can do second series

310
00:14:08,020 –> 00:14:09,250
we need to learn how to move like a

311
00:14:09,250 –> 00:14:13,660
child not like an adult because to a lot

312
00:14:13,660 –> 00:14:15,070
of people it seems the opposite you need

313
00:14:15,070 –> 00:14:16,930
to be like full power to be able to get

314
00:14:16,930 –> 00:14:18,280
into the second now you’ve got to go

315
00:14:18,280 –> 00:14:19,930
back to learning understanding how to

316
00:14:19,930 –> 00:14:21,790
move like a child once you move like a

317
00:14:21,790 –> 00:14:24,070
child then you can be a peacock right

318
00:14:24,070 –> 00:14:26,170
then he can be a frog so you can play

319
00:14:26,170 –> 00:14:28,060
you can play you can play with your body

320
00:14:28,060 –> 00:14:29,830
that’s so Prime Minister is Chuck as a

321
00:14:29,830 –> 00:14:31,660
bit like the first set of Lego you get

322
00:14:31,660 –> 00:14:34,150
just basic building blocks do and there

323
00:14:34,150 –> 00:14:35,980
are nadi shodhana is when your parents

324
00:14:35,980 –> 00:14:37,089
are going to afford the more expensive

325
00:14:37,089 –> 00:14:39,250
second sets where you can start making

326
00:14:39,250 –> 00:14:42,120
things with glass windows and wheels and

327
00:14:42,120 –> 00:14:45,670
it still changes so hot there yo gas you

328
00:14:45,670 –> 00:14:48,550
is the balancing on the Sun moon

329
00:14:48,550 –> 00:14:54,880
energies yes and so obviously agree with

330
00:14:54,880 –> 00:14:55,210
me

331
00:14:55,210 –> 00:14:57,490
let’s do obviously if you don’t know the

332
00:14:57,490 –> 00:14:59,530
phases of the Moon where it is then you

333
00:14:59,530 –> 00:15:00,970
don’t know whether you’re right nostrils

334
00:15:00,970 –> 00:15:02,680
block or your left nostrils brought them

335
00:15:02,680 –> 00:15:04,420
when they’re switching and swapping yeah

336
00:15:04,420 –> 00:15:07,120
most of us are not aware of where

337
00:15:07,120 –> 00:15:08,860
they’re I know that my right nostril

338
00:15:08,860 –> 00:15:11,530
tends to be slightly more blocked than

339
00:15:11,530 –> 00:15:15,100
my left hmm I know when it’s clearing

340
00:15:15,100 –> 00:15:17,950
and I know when they both are pretty

341
00:15:17,950 –> 00:15:20,350
much flowing fairly evenly which is

342
00:15:20,350 –> 00:15:22,839
special and that’s when I’m teaching in

343
00:15:22,839 –> 00:15:25,540
class is that when you you get the lot

344
00:15:25,540 –> 00:15:27,430
the most clarity well when you’re

345
00:15:27,430 –> 00:15:29,290
balancing out the Sun and Moon

346
00:15:29,290 –> 00:15:31,810
which is the duality it’s another

347
00:15:31,810 –> 00:15:35,440
representation of the stool dark light

348
00:15:35,440 –> 00:15:39,100
yeah the the good the evil the however

349
00:15:39,100 –> 00:15:40,899
you want to wrap it and package it up

350
00:15:40,899 –> 00:15:43,389
they have to be balanced to get into

351
00:15:43,389 –> 00:15:45,610
that Shoshanna to get into that that

352
00:15:45,610 –> 00:15:49,899
central quantum midline that we have so

353
00:15:49,899 –> 00:15:51,940
we have to build build a relationship

354
00:15:51,940 –> 00:15:54,880
with our our Sun Moon energy sound

355
00:15:54,880 –> 00:15:58,420
minutes this a male female so part of my

356
00:15:58,420 –> 00:16:00,670
femaleness is in my presentation with my

357
00:16:00,670 –> 00:16:02,949
hair yeah you know a lot of glamour

358
00:16:02,949 –> 00:16:06,579
going on there yeah so it’s about you

359
00:16:06,579 –> 00:16:09,339
know balancing out the honoring that the

360
00:16:09,339 –> 00:16:10,839
the having the ability to have

361
00:16:10,839 –> 00:16:13,209
empathetic relationships with my

362
00:16:13,209 –> 00:16:15,069
students to be able to have that sense

363
00:16:15,069 –> 00:16:16,949
of emotional feeling and understanding

364
00:16:16,949 –> 00:16:20,110
that the teachers not all about power

365
00:16:20,110 –> 00:16:23,110
and and driving and achievement and

366
00:16:23,110 –> 00:16:25,000
that’s I know we just take a little

367
00:16:25,000 –> 00:16:26,709
digression there but one other because

368
00:16:26,709 –> 00:16:28,240
I’m always asking for feedback when

369
00:16:28,240 –> 00:16:30,610
people come to see me and I say you know

370
00:16:30,610 –> 00:16:32,199
house of course going and the certain

371
00:16:32,199 –> 00:16:35,769
the other and I’m always getting from

372
00:16:35,769 –> 00:16:38,139
your students that they feel that yes

373
00:16:38,139 –> 00:16:40,540
you make a definite connection with them

374
00:16:40,540 –> 00:16:43,420
and that you understand what they’re

375
00:16:43,420 –> 00:16:45,240
going through and that there isn’t any

376
00:16:45,240 –> 00:16:46,420
forcefulness

377
00:16:46,420 –> 00:16:49,779
to you to you you know that you really

378
00:16:49,779 –> 00:16:51,790
really you really play back and

379
00:16:51,790 –> 00:16:53,139
obviously that’s something you foster

380
00:16:53,139 –> 00:16:56,050
but also must come very naturally out of

381
00:16:56,050 –> 00:16:59,199
you as well yeah you will stay with the

382
00:16:59,199 –> 00:17:01,660
digression for a little moment I believe

383
00:17:01,660 –> 00:17:06,250
that teachers are born not cultivated

384
00:17:06,250 –> 00:17:07,900
not cultivated teachers a but you’re

385
00:17:07,900 –> 00:17:09,400
either going to be a teacher or not a

386
00:17:09,400 –> 00:17:11,619
teacher and you’re born say born from

387
00:17:11,619 –> 00:17:14,500
your mother but you’re also born from

388
00:17:14,500 –> 00:17:17,470
the mat right whatever the discipline is

389
00:17:17,470 –> 00:17:20,589
you have to have had the 99% practice

390
00:17:20,589 –> 00:17:22,480
that because that’s continuing you’ve

391
00:17:22,480 –> 00:17:24,970
got to have the experience but you know

392
00:17:24,970 –> 00:17:27,400
there are people that have the ability

393
00:17:27,400 –> 00:17:30,040
to to hold an audience or to be able to

394
00:17:30,040 –> 00:17:32,110
have patience to be able to explain to

395
00:17:32,110 –> 00:17:37,419
repeat again to be patient being having

396
00:17:37,419 –> 00:17:41,590
been a father and a husband I’ve had

397
00:17:41,590 –> 00:17:43,059
gone through that real

398
00:17:43,059 –> 00:17:45,249
household phase which is a really

399
00:17:45,249 –> 00:17:47,610
important phase of understanding as well

400
00:17:47,610 –> 00:17:50,019
so we’ll go there but let’s finish the

401
00:17:50,019 –> 00:17:50,649
yes

402
00:17:50,649 –> 00:17:54,370
the eclipsing will go there because I

403
00:17:54,370 –> 00:17:56,559
have to go back to Guruji yes and do

404
00:17:56,559 –> 00:17:58,600
because because Guruji in a sense my

405
00:17:58,600 –> 00:18:00,249
mum’s my first teacher my dad’s my

406
00:18:00,249 –> 00:18:02,019
second teacher I’ve had a number of

407
00:18:02,019 –> 00:18:05,559
teachers but Guruji is my real teacher

408
00:18:05,559 –> 00:18:08,409
in terms of being born from Guruji as a

409
00:18:08,409 –> 00:18:11,470
as a teacher right count born from my

410
00:18:11,470 –> 00:18:14,230
mom yeah and you can see the growth to

411
00:18:14,230 –> 00:18:16,330
become a teacher I knew I wanted to

412
00:18:16,330 –> 00:18:18,190
teach something at a particular time I

413
00:18:18,190 –> 00:18:19,659
knew I wanted to be a teacher I didn’t

414
00:18:19,659 –> 00:18:23,799
know what the subject matter was it was

415
00:18:23,799 –> 00:18:29,350
going to be being a seeker yeah um so

416
00:18:29,350 –> 00:18:31,409
anyway but I’ve also been born as a

417
00:18:31,409 –> 00:18:35,159
teacher through the experience of

418
00:18:35,159 –> 00:18:37,749
practicing with Guruji yeah so we’ll

419
00:18:37,749 –> 00:18:39,220
visit that in a minute

420
00:18:39,220 –> 00:18:43,809
yeah so to finish off we recap negative

421
00:18:43,809 –> 00:18:46,629
you’re positive this is loser

422
00:18:46,629 –> 00:18:48,999
this is winner this is nothing in it for

423
00:18:48,999 –> 00:18:50,860
me this is all the negative thoughts

424
00:18:50,860 –> 00:18:54,749
doubt bubblebobbler here is caught

425
00:18:54,749 –> 00:18:56,649
overcompensating it we could be in the

426
00:18:56,649 –> 00:18:58,809
past or the future and we’re oscillating

427
00:18:58,809 –> 00:19:00,460
like that all the time never in the

428
00:19:00,460 –> 00:19:02,820
present moment

429
00:19:03,960 –> 00:19:09,340
so being Libra n– I understand well

430
00:19:09,340 –> 00:19:11,980
it’s like hanging out here of my scales

431
00:19:11,980 –> 00:19:13,179
are tipped if I’m depressed I’m

432
00:19:13,179 –> 00:19:16,330
depressed into your swing you feel you

433
00:19:16,330 –> 00:19:17,860
do this process where I swing and then

434
00:19:17,860 –> 00:19:19,330
of course I may hear I’m feeling yeah

435
00:19:19,330 –> 00:19:21,190
I’m I’m winning today for the world I’m

436
00:19:21,190 –> 00:19:25,059
on top okay but they are all selfish

437
00:19:25,059 –> 00:19:28,330
right both they’re all personal it’s all

438
00:19:28,330 –> 00:19:31,299
about me stew it’s all about me

439
00:19:31,299 –> 00:19:35,820
depressed or it’s all about me winning

440
00:19:35,820 –> 00:19:38,529
okay and in my younger days when I was a

441
00:19:38,529 –> 00:19:41,830
warrior we can still see that in you now

442
00:19:41,830 –> 00:19:44,860
yeah there’s a way I have to fight to be

443
00:19:44,860 –> 00:19:49,600
on top street you know so the younger

444
00:19:49,600 –> 00:19:51,700
teachers coming through yes I’ve gone

445
00:19:51,700 –> 00:19:54,220
from the and athletic phase of the

446
00:19:54,220 –> 00:19:56,770
Brahma chharia okay so in this and

447
00:19:56,770 –> 00:19:58,840
an Indian system is Brahm Acharya your

448
00:19:58,840 –> 00:20:02,700
student in Kowloon his archetypes ‘as

449
00:20:02,700 –> 00:20:03,940
athlete

450
00:20:03,940 –> 00:20:07,630
I remember being the athlete really

451
00:20:07,630 –> 00:20:10,270
competing against myself hand stands at

452
00:20:10,270 –> 00:20:12,160
the river you know and then when I

453
00:20:12,160 –> 00:20:14,170
became a teacher I had to stay on top of

454
00:20:14,170 –> 00:20:17,410
my games – yeah – and do all that work

455
00:20:17,410 –> 00:20:19,690
and yeah let you put on yourself as well

456
00:20:19,690 –> 00:20:22,390
being a husband and Anna and a father I

457
00:20:22,390 –> 00:20:25,750
are now a household to provide for and

458
00:20:25,750 –> 00:20:27,700
so you have to stay yet that’s the

459
00:20:27,700 –> 00:20:30,790
warrior phase that car jung hwan’s now

460
00:20:30,790 –> 00:20:32,559
I’m entering what he would call the

461
00:20:32,559 –> 00:20:35,350
statesman’s phase or the vanaprastha

462
00:20:35,350 –> 00:20:37,090
which is where you go with more into

463
00:20:37,090 –> 00:20:39,010
meditation you go you’re not so involved

464
00:20:39,010 –> 00:20:42,460
in the community politics you might be

465
00:20:42,460 –> 00:20:45,220
an adviser like a state’s person so now

466
00:20:45,220 –> 00:20:46,780
I’m in that role of teaching other

467
00:20:46,780 –> 00:20:48,280
teachers to do that

468
00:20:48,280 –> 00:20:53,350
warrior stage so I’m not having to do it

469
00:20:53,350 –> 00:20:56,620
I can sit back now a little bit more and

470
00:20:56,620 –> 00:20:58,240
now what happens when you sit back a

471
00:20:58,240 –> 00:21:02,440
little bit but not too far is you come

472
00:21:02,440 –> 00:21:06,420
to an eclipse so here my earth is my

473
00:21:06,420 –> 00:21:09,850
pelvis right so exhalation is that

474
00:21:09,850 –> 00:21:11,710
rooting down there now we know it’s

475
00:21:11,710 –> 00:21:14,020
something like 93 thousand million miles

476
00:21:14,020 –> 00:21:18,700
away the Sun so I just think of the huge

477
00:21:18,700 –> 00:21:21,309
distance between the head son pelvis

478
00:21:21,309 –> 00:21:23,679
earth the moment that you exhale down

479
00:21:23,679 –> 00:21:25,990
there’s your mullah and you inhale up

480
00:21:25,990 –> 00:21:26,679
there’s your woody

481
00:21:26,679 –> 00:21:29,650
so Mahler is downward contracted rooting

482
00:21:29,650 –> 00:21:31,660
already on a bundle basically is upward

483
00:21:31,660 –> 00:21:34,210
and flying expansive lifting up that

484
00:21:34,210 –> 00:21:38,440
distance is huge just have a look to it

485
00:21:38,440 –> 00:21:41,200
my thoracic if I let that distance

486
00:21:41,200 –> 00:21:44,290
collapse backwards my thoracic moves

487
00:21:44,290 –> 00:21:48,460
back yeah if I stretch that up keep it

488
00:21:48,460 –> 00:21:50,260
stretched but then continue to take it

489
00:21:50,260 –> 00:21:53,740
that way my threat goes forward so if I

490
00:21:53,740 –> 00:21:57,280
just keep that vertical so this straight

491
00:21:57,280 –> 00:21:59,410
up the thoracic comes in line what’s in

492
00:21:59,410 –> 00:22:01,710
the middle of the thoracic your heart

493
00:22:01,710 –> 00:22:06,880
this is heavy hearts – it’s not one that

494
00:22:06,880 –> 00:22:09,130
this is gravity’s really pulling us down

495
00:22:09,130 –> 00:22:10,540
aging is going to

496
00:22:10,540 –> 00:22:14,590
I really quick this is then the heart is

497
00:22:14,590 –> 00:22:16,780
way out the front via this we could say

498
00:22:16,780 –> 00:22:18,820
this is just an imbalance of the

499
00:22:18,820 –> 00:22:21,610
parasympathetic nervous system and this

500
00:22:21,610 –> 00:22:23,740
is the sympathetic nervous system on

501
00:22:23,740 –> 00:22:25,870
fire you know you can’t stop you keep

502
00:22:25,870 –> 00:22:28,270
going poom but some people would say

503
00:22:28,270 –> 00:22:31,680
that this sort of is also

504
00:22:31,680 –> 00:22:34,390
open-heartedness maybe but the facts

505
00:22:34,390 –> 00:22:36,070
closer yeah it’s true

506
00:22:36,070 –> 00:22:37,630
it’s might be pretentious I’m open

507
00:22:37,630 –> 00:22:38,710
harder to you because I’m gonna get a

508
00:22:38,710 –> 00:22:41,650
lot out of it okay it still falls into

509
00:22:41,650 –> 00:22:43,270
the category I’m going to self gain

510
00:22:43,270 –> 00:22:45,460
great you know so you got to watch out

511
00:22:45,460 –> 00:22:51,820
for that charming someone yes okay we

512
00:22:51,820 –> 00:22:53,710
can charm one another when we’re

513
00:22:53,710 –> 00:22:55,360
charming one another what does it mean

514
00:22:55,360 –> 00:22:58,510
that there’s an end game isn’t it so yes

515
00:22:58,510 –> 00:23:00,340
so sometimes we’re going to watch out

516
00:23:00,340 –> 00:23:02,230
for the Fox the wolf

517
00:23:02,230 –> 00:23:07,590
sorry I started to play with it yourself

518
00:23:07,590 –> 00:23:11,200
that’s okay I got the wrong beads yes I

519
00:23:11,200 –> 00:23:12,460
was trying to tell them to it you should

520
00:23:12,460 –> 00:23:14,920
have had interview beads I know he’s

521
00:23:14,920 –> 00:23:17,950
normal being so yeah this is this is a

522
00:23:17,950 –> 00:23:19,680
little bit say this is my Marla a

523
00:23:19,680 –> 00:23:22,690
secondary secondary interlude here or

524
00:23:22,690 –> 00:23:27,130
soy digression akin Dre Trini Chitauri

525
00:23:27,130 –> 00:23:32,920
okay so um just as some yoga Moslems

526
00:23:32,920 –> 00:23:34,450
teachers might be counting their mala

527
00:23:34,450 –> 00:23:36,580
while they’re talking I’ve got my mother

528
00:23:36,580 –> 00:23:38,320
up here but there’s a loli of a

529
00:23:38,320 –> 00:23:41,500
character v we’ve been up to nine we

530
00:23:41,500 –> 00:23:43,530
have been up to Surya Namaskar ace ji o

531
00:23:43,530 –> 00:23:48,340
anyway so if my heart comes perfectly

532
00:23:48,340 –> 00:23:51,760
aligned between my earth pelvis your

533
00:23:51,760 –> 00:23:57,100
head Sun heart moon now viewed from

534
00:23:57,100 –> 00:24:00,250
Earth looking up to head Sun with the

535
00:24:00,250 –> 00:24:02,170
heart Moon perfectly aligned what

536
00:24:02,170 –> 00:24:04,660
happens and Eclipse

537
00:24:04,660 –> 00:24:10,650
yes it’s called a Nimbus a halo or a

538
00:24:10,650 –> 00:24:16,870
radiance of light behind the moon

539
00:24:16,870 –> 00:24:21,580
because your moon has blocked the Sun so

540
00:24:21,580 –> 00:24:23,320
I looked up eclipse in the Oxford

541
00:24:23,320 –> 00:24:24,220
Dictionary and

542
00:24:24,220 –> 00:24:31,049
what I get is is to block and to surpass

543
00:24:31,169 –> 00:24:34,600
to block and to surpass is to eclipse

544
00:24:34,600 –> 00:24:39,820
yeah so what does that mean to me to

545
00:24:39,820 –> 00:24:42,520
block the light of the Sun and to

546
00:24:42,520 –> 00:24:45,070
eclipse the Sun it actually even makes a

547
00:24:45,070 –> 00:24:50,500
bit more spectacular celestial this

548
00:24:50,500 –> 00:24:54,850
wonderment also on the way in and the

549
00:24:54,850 –> 00:25:00,220
way out a little digression within the

550
00:25:00,220 –> 00:25:06,190
digression Harry Potter’s yes broomstick

551
00:25:06,190 –> 00:25:08,919
was called a Nimbus 2000 his first one I

552
00:25:08,919 –> 00:25:11,409
see things reference none in glad

553
00:25:11,409 –> 00:25:13,299
there’s a cloud called a Nimbus you know

554
00:25:13,299 –> 00:25:15,669
isn’t it Eclipse tall other broomsticks

555
00:25:15,669 –> 00:25:18,640
yeah it was also the one that was

556
00:25:18,640 –> 00:25:22,090
against the dark arts blocked the power

557
00:25:22,090 –> 00:25:25,950
of the Dark Arts and it was the fastest

558
00:25:25,950 –> 00:25:27,850
that’s what you get when you’ve got

559
00:25:27,850 –> 00:25:32,620
children you gain oh so a Nimbus or a

560
00:25:32,620 –> 00:25:36,610
radiance or a halo of light yeah and so

561
00:25:36,610 –> 00:25:39,370
our wordplay in our head I’ve my head’s

562
00:25:39,370 –> 00:25:44,590
full of wordplay so what my eclipsing

563
00:25:44,590 –> 00:25:49,200
does is a it blocks the negativity yeah

564
00:25:49,200 –> 00:25:52,720
the egocentric yes so I want to block

565
00:25:52,720 –> 00:25:56,049
thoughts of that can you see that you

566
00:25:56,049 –> 00:25:58,510
can you can actually see my thoughts so

567
00:25:58,510 –> 00:26:02,230
a lack of posture means all of the

568
00:26:02,230 –> 00:26:06,940
energies here stiff yeah as we get to a

569
00:26:06,940 –> 00:26:12,700
certain an aligned posture then it’s

570
00:26:12,700 –> 00:26:15,549
this is the center not this anymore this

571
00:26:15,549 –> 00:26:19,179
is our heart mind not a head thinking

572
00:26:19,179 –> 00:26:21,280
yes your heart mind this is where

573
00:26:21,280 –> 00:26:25,450
there’s inspired revelation or whatever

574
00:26:25,450 –> 00:26:28,750
you want to call it and so here in this

575
00:26:28,750 –> 00:26:33,880
Eclipse place you’ll then there’s word

576
00:26:33,880 –> 00:26:35,980
associations where have you heard the

577
00:26:35,980 –> 00:26:37,059
word halo who has

578
00:26:37,059 –> 00:26:42,370
hallo Jesus you got there before me okay

579
00:26:42,370 –> 00:26:45,159
Orson tantony or any other Christian

580
00:26:45,159 –> 00:26:51,399
saints all have a halo Mary so does the

581
00:26:51,399 –> 00:26:56,679
Buddha have a halo so but if you love

582
00:26:56,679 –> 00:26:58,690
symbology and you go into it and look at

583
00:26:58,690 –> 00:27:02,499
it a little bit more have a look at

584
00:27:02,499 –> 00:27:06,629
Jesus Jesus’s heart is usually open

585
00:27:06,629 –> 00:27:09,490
there’s radiance of light coming out of

586
00:27:09,490 –> 00:27:13,990
his heart a red rose so there’s a light

587
00:27:13,990 –> 00:27:17,860
and a rose it’s not a lotus but okay

588
00:27:17,860 –> 00:27:21,009
it’s a flower same symbology so he has

589
00:27:21,009 –> 00:27:23,740
an emanating presence of light that’s

590
00:27:23,740 –> 00:27:27,249
coming from his heart center plus the

591
00:27:27,249 –> 00:27:30,369
halo if you look at Buddha you’ll see

592
00:27:30,369 –> 00:27:33,850
Buddha actually has a bigger disc around

593
00:27:33,850 –> 00:27:37,869
them yeah and then the smaller disc the

594
00:27:37,869 –> 00:27:39,639
bigger ones centered around the heart

595
00:27:39,639 –> 00:27:42,159
so Jesus and the Buddha for me for

596
00:27:42,159 –> 00:27:46,980
example our exemplar of selfless ones

597
00:27:46,980 –> 00:27:52,990
eclipsed beings selfish selfish self

598
00:27:52,990 –> 00:27:57,369
less this is a place of humility so this

599
00:27:57,369 –> 00:27:59,679
is where it is and what I mean by self

600
00:27:59,679 –> 00:28:02,619
less is in that Eclipse places are not

601
00:28:02,619 –> 00:28:06,519
about you self-important you it’s about

602
00:28:06,519 –> 00:28:11,740
being in service yep being in service to

603
00:28:11,740 –> 00:28:16,269
others is the secret of hatha yoga and

604
00:28:16,269 –> 00:28:18,490
so how do we foster that obviously we’re

605
00:28:18,490 –> 00:28:21,429
fostering it from how we’re practicing

606
00:28:21,429 –> 00:28:24,039
how where are we getting we got history

607
00:28:24,039 –> 00:28:28,659
by you asking about the moon yeah not

608
00:28:28,659 –> 00:28:31,139
just holding things as labels

609
00:28:31,139 –> 00:28:34,029
unpackaging them just like a sutra a

610
00:28:34,029 –> 00:28:36,759
Sutra is stitched together and you’ve

611
00:28:36,759 –> 00:28:39,749
got to undo those threads to get it

612
00:28:39,749 –> 00:28:43,840
unpacked to get the bigger context your

613
00:28:43,840 –> 00:28:47,649
meaning and so why do we have a moon day

614
00:28:47,649 –> 00:28:49,000
we have a moon day and then we go off

615
00:28:49,000 –> 00:28:49,750
from

616
00:28:49,750 –> 00:28:52,210
get about it do we inquire into the moon

617
00:28:52,210 –> 00:28:54,190
day and it’s what your inquiry is it is

618
00:28:54,190 –> 00:28:55,270
about yes

619
00:28:55,270 –> 00:28:56,950
so let’s tie it into the name it’s

620
00:28:56,950 –> 00:28:58,660
called hatha yoga so no moon what on

621
00:28:58,660 –> 00:29:03,190
earth is that all about being westerner

622
00:29:03,190 –> 00:29:08,560
we have a freedom to I love this term I

623
00:29:08,560 –> 00:29:10,930
got this term from Richard Freeman cross

624
00:29:10,930 –> 00:29:14,620
culture borrow mmm or to actually borrow

625
00:29:14,620 –> 00:29:17,890
from different systems not being bound

626
00:29:17,890 –> 00:29:21,880
to one doctrine all the time when we

627
00:29:21,880 –> 00:29:23,740
open up and we got all that take that

628
00:29:23,740 –> 00:29:25,420
from that map from that map from that

629
00:29:25,420 –> 00:29:28,360
and see how that works so for example

630
00:29:28,360 –> 00:29:31,360
yin and yang yes they don’t work on

631
00:29:31,360 –> 00:29:33,880
their own and when the yin and yang are

632
00:29:33,880 –> 00:29:37,210
together what do you have more of a

633
00:29:37,210 –> 00:29:40,170
complete you have a Tai Chi yes

634
00:29:40,170 –> 00:29:42,970
do we often in the west hear those three

635
00:29:42,970 –> 00:29:45,540
words together yin yang Tai Chi as a

636
00:29:45,540 –> 00:29:50,740
result so a yin and a yang energy make a

637
00:29:50,740 –> 00:29:55,480
Tai Chi that Tai Chi is the equivalent

638
00:29:55,480 –> 00:30:00,990
to sattva rajas tamas that’s a trinity

639
00:30:00,990 –> 00:30:05,470
rajas tamas and sattva so here the

640
00:30:05,470 –> 00:30:10,150
sattva is the Eclipse state the Illume

641
00:30:10,150 –> 00:30:14,200
state the awake state when the Shoshanna

642
00:30:14,200 –> 00:30:17,410
is flowing because the energies of of

643
00:30:17,410 –> 00:30:23,500
solar and lunar are equal and so I’ll

644
00:30:23,500 –> 00:30:27,190
take you into the next question of often

645
00:30:27,190 –> 00:30:28,840
I didn’t even know I was asking no you

646
00:30:28,840 –> 00:30:31,990
did ask it about that teaching aspect

647
00:30:31,990 –> 00:30:34,870
and the and the care for others yes is

648
00:30:34,870 –> 00:30:41,500
that there’s four Brahma something codes

649
00:30:41,500 –> 00:30:43,270
of relationship I call them that

650
00:30:43,270 –> 00:30:44,950
potentially talks about if you can get

651
00:30:44,950 –> 00:30:46,930
these four working for you you’ll get

652
00:30:46,930 –> 00:30:49,540
eco gray one pointed focus and you’ll be

653
00:30:49,540 –> 00:30:51,700
able to steal those fluctuations of the

654
00:30:51,700 –> 00:30:55,810
mind the end balance between Sun Moon

655
00:30:55,810 –> 00:30:58,570
right side left side let’s say the Sun

656
00:30:58,570 –> 00:31:01,240
side is all about the things and the

657
00:31:01,240 –> 00:31:03,410
left side the moon’s height

658
00:31:03,410 –> 00:31:05,240
all about you in relationship to those

659
00:31:05,240 –> 00:31:07,820
things yeah that’s basically a simple

660
00:31:07,820 –> 00:31:09,770
cartoon of it those two know these are

661
00:31:09,770 –> 00:31:11,270
like that strangling because the two

662
00:31:11,270 –> 00:31:14,420
pictures aren’t the same you’re your

663
00:31:14,420 –> 00:31:19,850
thing triangle stew and triangle what do

664
00:31:19,850 –> 00:31:21,350
you think of triangles going through

665
00:31:21,350 –> 00:31:24,560
your left channel the actual triangle

666
00:31:24,560 –> 00:31:27,740
thought is actually neutral empty the

667
00:31:27,740 –> 00:31:29,570
Heart Sutra gotcha Goethe paragate

668
00:31:29,570 –> 00:31:32,600
parasamgate Bodhi svaha it’s the wavers

669
00:31:32,600 –> 00:31:34,640
form formers wave you know that wave

670
00:31:34,640 –> 00:31:37,730
form is emptiness emptiness is form now

671
00:31:37,730 –> 00:31:40,430
all of the Arsenal’s are empty but we

672
00:31:40,430 –> 00:31:45,380
pack them with our shit yes and our

673
00:31:45,380 –> 00:31:47,660
association to them and that ties is up

674
00:31:47,660 –> 00:31:48,440
in the knot

675
00:31:48,440 –> 00:31:51,860
either we can’t do it or we have the

676
00:31:51,860 –> 00:31:53,840
best and we’re loving it and we love

677
00:31:53,840 –> 00:31:59,000
Anna Anna Bing the hamstring goes yeah

678
00:31:59,000 –> 00:32:02,660
so when we start to realize the arthur

679
00:32:02,660 –> 00:32:07,670
nazar empty then the grip on that

680
00:32:07,670 –> 00:32:10,790
central channel our emotional fields

681
00:32:10,790 –> 00:32:13,730
will start to to settle out our mind

682
00:32:13,730 –> 00:32:15,650
will start to come and the one I’m

683
00:32:15,650 –> 00:32:17,750
talking about is as a picker Shambu

684
00:32:17,750 –> 00:32:21,160
pecker is the fourth one and which means

685
00:32:21,160 –> 00:32:22,820
unfortunately lots of teachers

686
00:32:22,820 –> 00:32:26,150
translator as with disregard to okay

687
00:32:26,150 –> 00:32:28,910
so when there’s negative energy bad

688
00:32:28,910 –> 00:32:32,750
energy okay don’t go to the pub because

689
00:32:32,750 –> 00:32:34,190
if you go to the pub you’re going to mix

690
00:32:34,190 –> 00:32:37,490
with these people and you’ll lose it

691
00:32:37,490 –> 00:32:41,170
yeah I call it the wobbly top syndrome

692
00:32:41,170 –> 00:32:46,100
so all wobbly tops okay when too wobbly

693
00:32:46,100 –> 00:32:48,520
tops hit one another it’s a train crash

694
00:32:48,520 –> 00:32:52,100
take guru ji he was a spinning top who

695
00:32:52,100 –> 00:32:54,310
was spinning on his Center at high

696
00:32:54,310 –> 00:32:56,780
revolutions a higher state of

697
00:32:56,780 –> 00:33:00,110
consciousness higher vibrations low

698
00:33:00,110 –> 00:33:03,980
vibrations lower synth rotation a wobbly

699
00:33:03,980 –> 00:33:06,920
top yeah when a wobbly top meets a true

700
00:33:06,920 –> 00:33:10,580
spinning top this vibrations are

701
00:33:10,580 –> 00:33:12,530
increased it’s like whipping the top

702
00:33:12,530 –> 00:33:14,660
keep the top going you got to keep

703
00:33:14,660 –> 00:33:16,010
whipping it you’ve got to keep

704
00:33:16,010 –> 00:33:16,820
practicing

705
00:33:16,820 –> 00:33:19,640
99% keep practicing keep it going keep

706
00:33:19,640 –> 00:33:21,890
your vibrations up if you aren’t strong

707
00:33:21,890 –> 00:33:23,450
enough to go down to the pub and have

708
00:33:23,450 –> 00:33:25,370
the illumined effect then don’t go to

709
00:33:25,370 –> 00:33:30,440
the pub it’s about equanimity it’s being

710
00:33:30,440 –> 00:33:35,050
able to hold well that person is is me I

711
00:33:35,050 –> 00:33:39,530
am then but you’ve got free will and

712
00:33:39,530 –> 00:33:47,060
choice and while we are of one there are

713
00:33:47,060 –> 00:33:48,950
another part of me right and we’re

714
00:33:48,950 –> 00:33:51,430
denying another part of ourselves okay

715
00:33:51,430 –> 00:33:54,440
but we how do you get to that place of

716
00:33:54,440 –> 00:33:58,250
equanimity again being a father like

717
00:33:58,250 –> 00:34:01,730
when your daughter’s going out with by

718
00:34:01,730 –> 00:34:06,770
say five months younger whatever

719
00:34:06,770 –> 00:34:11,840
I won’t paint the picture there’s people

720
00:34:11,840 –> 00:34:14,330
cringing already what person has ever

721
00:34:14,330 –> 00:34:18,620
had their parents agree to the person

722
00:34:18,620 –> 00:34:21,080
that they are in relationship with it’s

723
00:34:21,080 –> 00:34:22,360
not the chosen one

724
00:34:22,360 –> 00:34:25,940
there’s no equanimity they can’t see the

725
00:34:25,940 –> 00:34:27,918
love that’s there yeah they can’t see

726
00:34:27,918 –> 00:34:28,760
the bigger picture

727
00:34:28,760 –> 00:34:32,739
anyway so one of the things about

728
00:34:32,739 –> 00:34:35,659
receiving your students I learned that

729
00:34:35,659 –> 00:34:38,360
from Guruji when I first arrived in

730
00:34:38,360 –> 00:34:40,969
Mysore having been directed there by my

731
00:34:40,969 –> 00:34:44,239
first teacher Derrick Island I knocked

732
00:34:44,239 –> 00:34:46,429
on Guruji’s door in the afternoon he

733
00:34:46,429 –> 00:34:49,370
came to the door and it was a big

734
00:34:49,370 –> 00:34:53,960
beaming smile there was no lines on his

735
00:34:53,960 –> 00:34:57,920
face it was an open face and he I think

736
00:34:57,920 –> 00:34:59,480
he say where you from or something where

737
00:34:59,480 –> 00:35:03,230
you come from you and he welcomed me in

738
00:35:03,230 –> 00:35:06,200
with love and kindness right from the

739
00:35:06,200 –> 00:35:08,330
word go right from the word go

740
00:35:08,330 –> 00:35:12,490
I can add a little digression Derrick

741
00:35:12,490 –> 00:35:16,550
went to Mysore beef I learnt from

742
00:35:16,550 –> 00:35:18,530
Derrick first before he went to my

743
00:35:18,530 –> 00:35:19,600
school

744
00:35:19,600 –> 00:35:23,270
he wasn’t had left the Shiva and

745
00:35:23,270 –> 00:35:25,550
organization had never been given a

746
00:35:25,550 –> 00:35:27,950
spiritual name wouldn’t take it ro

747
00:35:27,950 –> 00:35:30,050
wouldn’t hug wouldn’t put a say

748
00:35:30,050 –> 00:35:33,080
no mistake wouldn’t do arms anything

749
00:35:33,080 –> 00:35:36,050
like that it was just all out body

750
00:35:36,050 –> 00:35:38,900
beautiful physical although he had some

751
00:35:38,900 –> 00:35:41,990
real depth inside but he wasn’t going

752
00:35:41,990 –> 00:35:45,200
into dogma and doctrine yes there was no

753
00:35:45,200 –> 00:35:47,440
way he was going to call anyone Guruji

754
00:35:47,440 –> 00:35:50,870
the response that Guruji had on him was

755
00:35:50,870 –> 00:35:53,780
when he knocked on the door and grew G

756
00:35:53,780 –> 00:35:55,430
came to the door the first thing he said

757
00:35:55,430 –> 00:35:59,930
was hello Guruji Derrick’s not here to

758
00:35:59,930 –> 00:36:03,020
tell that story now but that that is

759
00:36:03,020 –> 00:36:05,450
that that’s the effect of the energy

760
00:36:05,450 –> 00:36:07,370
that was coming through and so what that

761
00:36:07,370 –> 00:36:11,510
is is mate three so the forearm a tree

762
00:36:11,510 –> 00:36:15,350
Karuna mudita loop eka there’s a sutra

763
00:36:15,350 –> 00:36:16,640
that says if you can get all those

764
00:36:16,640 –> 00:36:19,250
working for you then you’ll be able to

765
00:36:19,250 –> 00:36:21,680
to to still the fluctuations of your

766
00:36:21,680 –> 00:36:23,720
mind because your mind won’t be having

767
00:36:23,720 –> 00:36:26,330
all these relational problems quite

768
00:36:26,330 –> 00:36:28,370
simply is that when you welcome your

769
00:36:28,370 –> 00:36:31,340
students in you welcome them in even if

770
00:36:31,340 –> 00:36:35,260
the studio is full you say yes because

771
00:36:35,260 –> 00:36:37,910
the second one which is Karuna which is

772
00:36:37,910 –> 00:36:40,520
compassion you welcome them all in with

773
00:36:40,520 –> 00:36:44,180
their staff you’re accepting them as

774
00:36:44,180 –> 00:36:45,950
they are understanding that they are

775
00:36:45,950 –> 00:36:48,770
human of human condition and we are in

776
00:36:48,770 –> 00:36:50,300
suffering right

777
00:36:50,300 –> 00:36:52,640
we’ve arrived unfortunately to an

778
00:36:52,640 –> 00:36:56,180
unlighted society I get that one from

779
00:36:56,180 –> 00:36:58,670
gretchen lovely title when we’re born

780
00:36:58,670 –> 00:37:03,500
the the world is unenlightened if we

781
00:37:03,500 –> 00:37:05,240
were being born into an enlightened

782
00:37:05,240 –> 00:37:07,730
society that would be different so we

783
00:37:07,730 –> 00:37:10,250
were born into the virus you already

784
00:37:10,250 –> 00:37:13,220
there’s we’re in traditions existence

785
00:37:13,220 –> 00:37:15,440
right from the very beginning so there’s

786
00:37:15,440 –> 00:37:17,150
that there’s the culture there’s the

787
00:37:17,150 –> 00:37:18,950
education is the politics there’s the

788
00:37:18,950 –> 00:37:20,780
religion of that place that you arrive

789
00:37:20,780 –> 00:37:23,270
that you choose to to come through it

790
00:37:23,270 –> 00:37:26,510
and that’s that that that becomes the

791
00:37:26,510 –> 00:37:29,150
story we take on that becomes the

792
00:37:29,150 –> 00:37:31,550
identity that we take on and that then

793
00:37:31,550 –> 00:37:33,950
becomes misidentified that’s who we are

794
00:37:33,950 –> 00:37:39,520
and so we’ve we’ve lost the real

795
00:37:39,520 –> 00:37:42,240
selfless self

796
00:37:42,240 –> 00:37:45,330
that a loomed in a spiritual being we

797
00:37:45,330 –> 00:37:47,880
are in human condition so understanding

798
00:37:47,880 –> 00:37:52,050
that you welcome everybody in but

799
00:37:52,050 –> 00:37:53,430
there’s a difference between bringing

800
00:37:53,430 –> 00:37:56,580
people in and making that direct

801
00:37:56,580 –> 00:37:59,700
connection with them and for them to to

802
00:37:59,700 –> 00:38:02,940
get your energy and also to accept you

803
00:38:02,940 –> 00:38:08,810
in where Drew Guruji’s pratyahara was

804
00:38:09,650 –> 00:38:13,770
sense control but his pratyahara also

805
00:38:13,770 –> 00:38:17,010
was seeing God in everyone and

806
00:38:17,010 –> 00:38:21,380
everything right so he’s meeting God

807
00:38:21,380 –> 00:38:25,080
he’s taking a quantum leaps to he’s in

808
00:38:25,080 –> 00:38:27,450
his quantum midline when he’s in that

809
00:38:27,450 –> 00:38:29,760
place making a quantum leap accepting

810
00:38:29,760 –> 00:38:32,580
the God in yes there might be some bags

811
00:38:32,580 –> 00:38:35,400
that the gods carrying but we’ll see we

812
00:38:35,400 –> 00:38:36,630
can sort through those bags

813
00:38:36,630 –> 00:38:39,000
we’ll wash them clean it all out a

814
00:38:39,000 –> 00:38:42,150
little bit because you have to have

815
00:38:42,150 –> 00:38:45,630
Karuna Karuna is compassion but what it

816
00:38:45,630 –> 00:38:48,570
was was it’s not just having empathy and

817
00:38:48,570 –> 00:38:51,180
being able to cry with someone and and

818
00:38:51,180 –> 00:38:53,520
feeling their suffering yeah it’s having

819
00:38:53,520 –> 00:38:56,520
a burning desires do to help them but

820
00:38:56,520 –> 00:38:59,910
not you doing it for them by having some

821
00:38:59,910 –> 00:39:02,070
simple techniques that you can pass on

822
00:39:02,070 –> 00:39:06,000
to them for them to do the work that’s

823
00:39:06,000 –> 00:39:08,010
what guru ji was giving us mind control

824
00:39:08,010 –> 00:39:10,800
and this there’s something about the

825
00:39:10,800 –> 00:39:14,369
teachers that were with him in those

826
00:39:14,369 –> 00:39:18,240
early days that seem to have lasted

827
00:39:18,240 –> 00:39:22,680
through time and and the students sense

828
00:39:22,680 –> 00:39:25,680
that authenticity don’t they and if you

829
00:39:25,680 –> 00:39:27,180
think of the people that were there with

830
00:39:27,180 –> 00:39:30,440
you at that same sort of time they’re

831
00:39:30,440 –> 00:39:33,119
they’re lasting teachers aren’t they and

832
00:39:33,119 –> 00:39:36,480
they’re attracting students all the time

833
00:39:36,480 –> 00:39:41,250
and they’re drawn to something that’s

834
00:39:41,250 –> 00:39:43,830
coming from that time that’s what I’m

835
00:39:43,830 –> 00:39:45,750
feeling is that how you see it well

836
00:39:45,750 –> 00:39:47,520
that’s why I wanted to say I had my mum

837
00:39:47,520 –> 00:39:51,420
yeah lots of teachers I have my mum my

838
00:39:51,420 –> 00:39:54,700
dad and Guruji yeah

839
00:39:54,700 –> 00:39:58,090
they are my first teachers they are who

840
00:39:58,090 –> 00:40:02,680
you learn from they set up the basic

841
00:40:02,680 –> 00:40:04,680
pattern so one two five really important

842
00:40:04,680 –> 00:40:08,380
stage so let’s say one two five when I

843
00:40:08,380 –> 00:40:12,160
was 27 with Guruji so 27 to 232 those

844
00:40:12,160 –> 00:40:14,620
first five years with Guruji you were

845
00:40:14,620 –> 00:40:17,890
really important on my first year with

846
00:40:17,890 –> 00:40:20,320
Guruji I went twice I went for three

847
00:40:20,320 –> 00:40:22,600
months then came back for four on the

848
00:40:22,600 –> 00:40:25,120
first three months with Guruji on the

849
00:40:25,120 –> 00:40:26,950
last month there was only four of us in

850
00:40:26,950 –> 00:40:31,570
the room Wow so I had Guruji adjusting

851
00:40:31,570 –> 00:40:34,510
me and everything and every pose that he

852
00:40:34,510 –> 00:40:36,940
gave me he adjusted me and so I had the

853
00:40:36,940 –> 00:40:40,180
one-to-one so that’s my precedence to my

854
00:40:40,180 –> 00:40:43,450
precedence is that my teacher treated me

855
00:40:43,450 –> 00:40:46,450
this way and so when I first started

856
00:40:46,450 –> 00:40:48,160
teaching I didn’t teach more than 8

857
00:40:48,160 –> 00:40:50,350
people we had a studio called the space

858
00:40:50,350 –> 00:40:52,300
at number 8 it was number 8 Chapel

859
00:40:52,300 –> 00:40:54,910
Street it was perfect nice little

860
00:40:54,910 –> 00:40:57,640
infinity sign yeah spaced at number 8 we

861
00:40:57,640 –> 00:40:59,050
only had eight students in the room at a

862
00:40:59,050 –> 00:41:03,220
time because I was trying to to copy my

863
00:41:03,220 –> 00:41:06,280
guru you and that’s the other thing with

864
00:41:06,280 –> 00:41:07,630
the matrix is I don’t know whether you

865
00:41:07,630 –> 00:41:10,420
saw the the part and the matrix where

866
00:41:10,420 –> 00:41:12,640
neo takes the book I boom and puts the

867
00:41:12,640 –> 00:41:14,770
money in on the book it’s called similar

868
00:41:14,770 –> 00:41:17,950
simulations simulacra right and and

869
00:41:17,950 –> 00:41:19,780
you’re taking some details when you

870
00:41:19,780 –> 00:41:21,850
watch something key now Yves had to read

871
00:41:21,850 –> 00:41:25,450
that book because it was about the about

872
00:41:25,450 –> 00:41:28,870
making maps and rich and Raymond once

873
00:41:28,870 –> 00:41:30,400
again says a really beautiful thing is

874
00:41:30,400 –> 00:41:34,060
that you you know the map of yoga you

875
00:41:34,060 –> 00:41:35,980
can’t put it in your pocket fold it and

876
00:41:35,980 –> 00:41:38,590
put in your pocket the map of yoga

877
00:41:38,590 –> 00:41:42,130
really is your experience you you’ve got

878
00:41:42,130 –> 00:41:45,340
you’ve got to do it and it’s not always

879
00:41:45,340 –> 00:41:48,610
about sort of copying the way a teacher

880
00:41:48,610 –> 00:41:51,610
taught is it it’s and just trying to

881
00:41:51,610 –> 00:41:54,100
remulak them but you you’re drawing the

882
00:41:54,100 –> 00:41:55,810
essence out of it but you can still

883
00:41:55,810 –> 00:41:58,600
apply your own yeah I’m not talking

884
00:41:58,600 –> 00:42:00,250
about copy I’m not doing like a

885
00:42:00,250 –> 00:42:02,320
photocopy copy no exactly that’s not a

886
00:42:02,320 –> 00:42:06,010
it’s like really observing guru ji when

887
00:42:06,010 –> 00:42:07,500
I mention about going out to chai

888
00:42:07,500 –> 00:42:09,990
fault that’s another part of what I

889
00:42:09,990 –> 00:42:12,750
bring into workshops is what I call the

890
00:42:12,750 –> 00:42:15,180
back to basic baby or fundamental

891
00:42:15,180 –> 00:42:17,280
thousand foundations and openings I have

892
00:42:17,280 –> 00:42:20,370
a baby sequence that I give pre Sun

893
00:42:20,370 –> 00:42:26,270
salutes wrote Guruji never lost his

894
00:42:26,270 –> 00:42:28,380
fundamental foundations and openings

895
00:42:28,380 –> 00:42:30,990
when he was 90 he could still sit down

896
00:42:30,990 –> 00:42:31,770
on the floor

897
00:42:31,770 –> 00:42:33,900
stand up off the floor and if he looked

898
00:42:33,900 –> 00:42:36,300
at him in a caricature tour of a cartoon

899
00:42:36,300 –> 00:42:40,350
he looked like a big baby right he

900
00:42:40,350 –> 00:42:43,250
didn’t lose how to move like a baby that

901
00:42:43,250 –> 00:42:46,020
playfulness and that yeah and so but

902
00:42:46,020 –> 00:42:47,880
like a bit like the Dalai Lama is often

903
00:42:47,880 –> 00:42:50,850
referred to his childlike manner so

904
00:42:50,850 –> 00:42:53,670
Groody had that welcoming you in with

905
00:42:53,670 –> 00:42:58,250
love kindness and the childlike openness

906
00:42:58,250 –> 00:43:02,610
he had a technique to give you so that

907
00:43:02,610 –> 00:43:04,140
you could pull yourself out of your

908
00:43:04,140 –> 00:43:08,340
suffering that’s what karoon is about

909
00:43:08,340 –> 00:43:09,960
that’s what compassion is really about

910
00:43:09,960 –> 00:43:12,840
and it wasn’t one thing for everybody

911
00:43:12,840 –> 00:43:16,200
was it from what I push that very much

912
00:43:16,200 –> 00:43:18,780
II pushed you everyone’s bun yeah he

913
00:43:18,780 –> 00:43:23,400
called Derrick old tree did he yeah he

914
00:43:23,400 –> 00:43:25,440
said that man speaks too much talks too

915
00:43:25,440 –> 00:43:27,690
much that was me I was too just in the

916
00:43:27,690 –> 00:43:29,280
show though yeah yeah I was too yeah

917
00:43:29,280 –> 00:43:31,290
well your mouth closed you asking

918
00:43:31,290 –> 00:43:32,700
question I don’t know now he was fine

919
00:43:32,700 –> 00:43:34,890
for now but I think just generally

920
00:43:34,890 –> 00:43:41,160
speaking interesting yeah from a tree

921
00:43:41,160 –> 00:43:44,460
Karuna you then have mudita now as a

922
00:43:44,460 –> 00:43:50,460
parent think about this how many

923
00:43:50,460 –> 00:43:51,480
pregnancies

924
00:43:51,480 –> 00:43:57,990
how many conceptions are welcomed as sad

925
00:43:57,990 –> 00:44:01,440
thought they I just could see there so I

926
00:44:01,440 –> 00:44:05,040
read your thought then that there’s a

927
00:44:05,040 –> 00:44:08,450
lot of unwanted pregnancies you that do

928
00:44:08,450 –> 00:44:11,220
continue full-term and the child spawn

929
00:44:11,220 –> 00:44:13,920
and what lives have they got ahead of

930
00:44:13,920 –> 00:44:17,339
them it’s sad to think about

931
00:44:17,339 –> 00:44:20,380
even when the families fall even when

932
00:44:20,380 –> 00:44:24,640
the money’s not there still welcome the

933
00:44:24,640 –> 00:44:27,630
baby in with lovingkindness

934
00:44:28,470 –> 00:44:31,240
the baby’s going to fall over the baby’s

935
00:44:31,240 –> 00:44:33,730
going to hurt themselves but you guide

936
00:44:33,730 –> 00:44:37,240
your child and you give them techniques

937
00:44:37,240 –> 00:44:40,690
strategies to be able to start becoming

938
00:44:40,690 –> 00:44:43,359
independent blue that’s the role of the

939
00:44:43,359 –> 00:44:45,670
teachers and I mean of a parent teacher

940
00:44:45,670 –> 00:44:49,270
yeah to give them there so you know that

941
00:44:49,270 –> 00:44:50,470
they’re going to hurt themselves but

942
00:44:50,470 –> 00:44:51,700
you’re not going to smack them from

943
00:44:51,700 –> 00:44:54,130
falling over which some kids do they get

944
00:44:54,130 –> 00:44:57,160
smacked from falling out if they hurt

945
00:44:57,160 –> 00:45:00,750
themselves they get scolded rather than

946
00:45:00,750 –> 00:45:01,930
okay

947
00:45:01,930 –> 00:45:05,859
yeah so let’s go for a little bit

948
00:45:05,859 –> 00:45:08,880
further into there you’ve got this this

949
00:45:08,880 –> 00:45:11,890
compassion giving them technique and

950
00:45:11,890 –> 00:45:14,440
flows into mudita which is called

951
00:45:14,440 –> 00:45:19,180
sympathetic joy we must have sympathetic

952
00:45:19,180 –> 00:45:22,780
joy what does that mean sympathetic joy

953
00:45:22,780 –> 00:45:25,329
I then look at what does it mean to me

954
00:45:25,329 –> 00:45:27,700
so when I’m doing these little studies

955
00:45:27,700 –> 00:45:30,220
and inquiries I go what does that mean

956
00:45:30,220 –> 00:45:32,680
to me what does it feel to me how can I

957
00:45:32,680 –> 00:45:40,000
unpack that in a John way and so I then

958
00:45:40,000 –> 00:45:44,160
like a guru ji again and guru ji

959
00:45:44,160 –> 00:45:49,750
expressed Maitri Karuna how did he

960
00:45:49,750 –> 00:45:54,010
express sympathetic joy hmm he would

961
00:45:54,010 –> 00:45:58,839
grunt say bad man he went he never

962
00:45:58,839 –> 00:46:02,740
really gave praise and you think that

963
00:46:02,740 –> 00:46:05,319
was that was a deliberate he had to hold

964
00:46:05,319 –> 00:46:09,390
himself back or would say good bad magic

965
00:46:09,390 –> 00:46:12,010
you could see he would smile you could

966
00:46:12,010 –> 00:46:14,680
see that he was proud right but let’s

967
00:46:14,680 –> 00:46:17,560
put it into a more real one the word

968
00:46:17,560 –> 00:46:21,190
really is what do we really suffer what

969
00:46:21,190 –> 00:46:23,290
are the one of the poisons of our heart

970
00:46:23,290 –> 00:46:24,790
that buried you talked about six poisons

971
00:46:24,790 –> 00:46:25,550
in your heart

972
00:46:25,550 –> 00:46:31,940
one of them is G Alice II wrote so

973
00:46:31,940 –> 00:46:33,950
sympathetic joy the opposite to

974
00:46:33,950 –> 00:46:37,900
sympathetic joy is jealousy and envy if

975
00:46:37,900 –> 00:46:40,490
you’re plagued with jealousy and envy

976
00:46:40,490 –> 00:46:44,210
you won’t be able to do mudita you won’t

977
00:46:44,210 –> 00:46:46,670
be able to experience sympathetic joy

978
00:46:46,670 –> 00:46:49,790
being joyful for someone else’s success

979
00:46:49,790 –> 00:46:52,790
yes to be joyful for someone else’s

980
00:46:52,790 –> 00:46:56,900
happiness that’s mudita yeah so for

981
00:46:56,900 –> 00:46:59,780
example Eddie was working Eddie Stern

982
00:46:59,780 –> 00:47:02,720
was working on the translation of

983
00:47:02,720 –> 00:47:04,550
Guruji’s yoga Marla to get that into

984
00:47:04,550 –> 00:47:07,040
English at the same time that John Scott

985
00:47:07,040 –> 00:47:12,700
was doing his with Gaia publishers

986
00:47:12,700 –> 00:47:15,290
Ashtanga vinyasa yoga a definitive

987
00:47:15,290 –> 00:47:19,730
step-by-step guide to to yoga right so

988
00:47:19,730 –> 00:47:24,230
I’ve written a book well that was only

989
00:47:24,230 –> 00:47:26,119
written through the publisher the

990
00:47:26,119 –> 00:47:27,980
publisher this is how it works in the

991
00:47:27,980 –> 00:47:29,660
Western world of materialism

992
00:47:29,660 –> 00:47:33,440
there’s the Frankfurt Book Fair yoga’s

993
00:47:33,440 –> 00:47:36,380
coming up in interest you and so guy I

994
00:47:36,380 –> 00:47:38,810
wanted to put a presentation of a yoga

995
00:47:38,810 –> 00:47:41,750
book Ashtanga vinyasa yoga they had done

996
00:47:41,750 –> 00:47:44,030
the earlier one of shivananda yoga that

997
00:47:44,030 –> 00:47:45,800
beautiful little book of yoga Shivan and

998
00:47:45,800 –> 00:47:48,830
Gaia was there and so ash stanga’s

999
00:47:48,830 –> 00:47:51,500
coming up they secretly wanted the words

1000
00:47:51,500 –> 00:47:55,160
power yoga that came later there was a

1001
00:47:55,160 –> 00:47:58,609
whole whole debate and I put my pins

1002
00:47:58,609 –> 00:48:04,480
down anyway so they were looking for a

1003
00:48:06,070 –> 00:48:08,420
practitioner to be a first-time author

1004
00:48:08,420 –> 00:48:10,430
which the editor basically was going to

1005
00:48:10,430 –> 00:48:13,790
do the writing rope okay and I turned it

1006
00:48:13,790 –> 00:48:17,119
down turned it down many times and

1007
00:48:17,119 –> 00:48:21,340
finally the editor came to class and

1008
00:48:21,340 –> 00:48:23,660
said each time I’ve approached you’ve

1009
00:48:23,660 –> 00:48:25,040
turned this down he said buddy every

1010
00:48:25,040 –> 00:48:27,080
Avenue I get down because it has to be

1011
00:48:27,080 –> 00:48:27,619
in English

1012
00:48:27,619 –> 00:48:29,450
practically all the most advanced other

1013
00:48:29,450 –> 00:48:30,920
words to come to ya

1014
00:48:30,920 –> 00:48:33,710
and I said well I can’t do I don’t have

1015
00:48:33,710 –> 00:48:36,320
enough experience and he said well if

1016
00:48:36,320 –> 00:48:38,580
you don’t do if this is the final no

1017
00:48:38,580 –> 00:48:40,500
then we’ll just get someone else to do

1018
00:48:40,500 –> 00:48:44,940
it at that point I then felt responsible

1019
00:48:44,940 –> 00:48:48,390
yeah so I said well I said Jonathan if I

1020
00:48:48,390 –> 00:48:50,730
can call Guruji let me call Guruji first

1021
00:48:50,730 –> 00:48:52,320
and I’ll put it to him and if he says

1022
00:48:52,320 –> 00:48:54,540
yes then we’ll go for it

1023
00:48:54,540 –> 00:48:57,870
if he says no then I won’t so I call

1024
00:48:57,870 –> 00:49:01,740
Guruji I called guru ji and he’s a John

also taking an interest in you yeah

1030
00:49:11,190 –> 00:49:13,980

1033
00:49:18,870 –> 00:49:21,660
that was his way of asking how are you

00:49:21,660 –> 00:49:23,940
would tell me something about you he was

1035
00:49:23,940 –> 00:49:27,480
interested and so what news I said

1036
00:49:27,480 –> 00:49:28,830
Guruji I’ve been approached by a

1037
00:49:28,830 –> 00:49:31,980
publisher to write a book on Ashtanga

1038
00:49:31,980 –> 00:49:37,680
vinyasa yoga look boys went up you know

1039
00:49:37,680 –> 00:49:43,890
you you write book and I went yes Guruji

1040
00:49:43,890 –> 00:49:46,830
um ice and so I explained what you

1041
00:49:46,830 –> 00:49:52,020
explained and he said hmm and so he said

1042
00:49:52,020 –> 00:49:55,760
yes you write book so I wrote the book

1043
00:49:55,760 –> 00:49:58,500
when let’s a whole other story but

1044
00:49:58,500 –> 00:50:01,310
writing the book Lucy was very much part

1045
00:50:01,310 –> 00:50:05,550
my first editor writer with me yeah we

1046
00:50:05,550 –> 00:50:08,040
would send the stuff off to Jonathan he

1047
00:50:08,040 –> 00:50:10,080
would come back and he would had changed

1048
00:50:10,080 –> 00:50:12,540
it and say and this gives you benefits

1049
00:50:12,540 –> 00:50:16,470
like a good sleep at night yeah my

1050
00:50:16,470 –> 00:50:19,610
graphic skills was superseded the the

1051
00:50:19,610 –> 00:50:21,900
graphic designer that they had I ended

1052
00:50:21,900 –> 00:50:25,050
up studying the page layouts we managed

1053
00:50:25,050 –> 00:50:28,320
to take over the writing and they got

1054
00:50:28,320 –> 00:50:31,650
more than they bargained for but anyway

1055
00:50:31,650 –> 00:50:33,990
the point is here it is that john scott

1056
00:50:33,990 –> 00:50:37,320
has a book and a DVD yeah and i was

1057
00:50:37,320 –> 00:50:40,560
there also with Guruji when they had

1058
00:50:40,560 –> 00:50:47,490
played the DVD and there he is the

1059
00:50:47,490 –> 00:50:51,810
ability to still be mudita sympathetic

1060
00:50:51,810 –> 00:50:52,160
joy

1061
00:50:52,160 –> 00:50:54,470
to have joy for someone else’s success

1062
00:50:54,470 –> 00:50:56,599
because remember Guruji is the one that

1063
00:50:56,599 –> 00:50:59,420
says nobody owns Ashtanga vinyasa nobody

1064
00:50:59,420 –> 00:51:04,039
owns yoga and so here here he’s had many

1065
00:51:04,039 –> 00:51:08,030
of his students do Wow but where his

1066
00:51:08,030 –> 00:51:10,640
children’s do where is it Western

1067
00:51:10,640 –> 00:51:13,640
extended family of course he’s proud of

1068
00:51:13,640 –> 00:51:17,390
us has his students efforts and sharing

1069
00:51:17,390 –> 00:51:19,400
of the practice yeah and of course the

1070
00:51:19,400 –> 00:51:21,950
content I mean before brew G died he had

1071
00:51:21,950 –> 00:51:25,099
a website yes so he’s coming that into

1072
00:51:25,099 –> 00:51:26,690

00:51:55,369 –> 00:51:57,829
and she’s saying no we are a different

1085
00:51:57,829 –> 00:51:58,609
generation

1086
00:51:58,609 –> 00:52:01,789
yeah of that generation I remember guru

1087
00:52:01,789 –> 00:52:05,049
ji saying to Ed Eastern no advertising

1088
00:52:05,049 –> 00:52:07,940
they look for yoga’s about the heart and

1089
00:52:07,940 –> 00:52:10,839
coming through from the heart but I

1090
00:52:10,839 –> 00:52:12,859
appreciate that we need to do things

1091
00:52:12,859 –> 00:52:15,730
like this this because we aren’t

1092
00:52:15,730 –> 00:52:19,400
accessible in terms of sharing internal

1093
00:52:19,400 –> 00:52:22,609
one why not yeah yeah and so so I go

1094
00:52:22,609 –> 00:52:25,760
with the I’m having to put the cap on

1095
00:52:25,760 –> 00:52:29,569
here so so Guruji displayed to me and

1096
00:52:29,569 –> 00:52:35,750
how it was to be encouraging with your

1097
00:52:35,750 –> 00:52:38,960
work your progress and your successes

1098
00:52:38,960 –> 00:52:41,990
and to be really pleased for them and so

1099
00:52:41,990 –> 00:52:44,240
I’m also in that situation too stupid

1100
00:52:44,240 –> 00:52:46,940
I’ve got other now graduate trainees

1101
00:52:46,940 –> 00:52:49,220
following their thing yes doing it and

1102
00:52:49,220 –> 00:52:51,589
and and experiencing the same thing yeah

1103
00:52:51,589 –> 00:52:54,829
and the last thing I want to do is fall

1104
00:52:54,829 –> 00:52:57,589
out with anybody let alone fall out with

1105
00:52:57,589 –> 00:53:01,250
Guruji yeah or fall out with now my

1106
00:53:01,250 –> 00:53:03,950
student teachers yeah because that’s so

1107
00:53:03,950 –> 00:53:05,770
onion or isn’t it yeah

1108
00:53:05,770 –> 00:53:07,960
and so that’s where from from

1109
00:53:07,960 –> 00:53:11,320
sympathetic joy we’re able to flow in to

1110
00:53:11,320 –> 00:53:13,510
well let’s say before that with the

1111
00:53:13,510 –> 00:53:15,460
difficulty with it with with being a

1112
00:53:15,460 –> 00:53:19,510
parent as your child wants to play

1113
00:53:19,510 –> 00:53:23,950
football instead of do yoga but then

1114
00:53:23,950 –> 00:53:24,880
you’re happy for them

1115
00:53:24,880 –> 00:53:26,620
you have before them because it’s their

1116
00:53:26,620 –> 00:53:30,160
their gift their gift is that or the

1117
00:53:30,160 –> 00:53:32,350
other way is you are going to be a

1118
00:53:32,350 –> 00:53:34,540
ballerina you are going to play the

1119
00:53:34,540 –> 00:53:36,760
piano you’re going to do all the things

1120
00:53:36,760 –> 00:53:39,430
I didn’t get to do you know so mudita

1121
00:53:39,430 –> 00:53:43,570
gets really out of balance and and how

1122
00:53:43,570 –> 00:53:46,660
mums and dads are with it Jordan is the

1123
00:53:46,660 –> 00:53:49,030
competition is the envious the

1124
00:53:49,030 –> 00:53:52,240
jealousies all of that and you know no

1125
00:53:52,240 –> 00:53:55,800
wonder we’ve got psychotherapists and

1126
00:53:55,800 –> 00:53:57,490
sociologists that are all working

1127
00:53:57,490 –> 00:54:00,750
through the staff the human condition

1128
00:54:00,750 –> 00:54:03,190
because these haven’t been taught or

1129
00:54:03,190 –> 00:54:06,220
implemented early enough and so if we

1130
00:54:06,220 –> 00:54:09,100
start to understand that although I’m

1131
00:54:09,100 –> 00:54:14,050
doing this linear again Maitri Karuna

1132
00:54:14,050 –> 00:54:17,070
mudita it’s all at the same time

1133
00:54:17,070 –> 00:54:19,630
everything’s going it wasn’t so yeah but

1134
00:54:19,630 –> 00:54:21,910
let’s learn them in order and then of

1135
00:54:21,910 –> 00:54:23,950
course it’s OPEC er which is equanimity

1136
00:54:23,950 –> 00:54:26,800
by this stage your family well the

1137
00:54:26,800 –> 00:54:29,020
Economist thing is the football or the

1138
00:54:29,020 –> 00:54:34,680
yoga you can see they are the same and

1139
00:54:34,680 –> 00:54:37,410
it’s just another aspect of you

1140
00:54:37,410 –> 00:54:39,160
experiencing something else a

1141
00:54:39,160 –> 00:54:41,770
consciousness in the big play of life is

1142
00:54:41,770 –> 00:54:44,860
is playing many characters many

1143
00:54:44,860 –> 00:54:50,950
characters and if we sort of circle

1144
00:54:50,950 –> 00:54:52,480
round back to the moon for a sec you

1145
00:54:52,480 –> 00:54:54,850
know like them we said that the moon is

1146
00:54:54,850 –> 00:54:56,590
going through all these different phases

1147
00:54:56,590 –> 00:55:00,720
and we can also associate that with our

1148
00:55:00,720 –> 00:55:03,940
life going through several different

1149
00:55:03,940 –> 00:55:08,170
phases as well and in your own practice

1150
00:55:08,170 –> 00:55:10,300
it’s obviously when it has gone through

1151
00:55:10,300 –> 00:55:14,140
those early years and then a period

1152
00:55:14,140 –> 00:55:16,720
where you were like teaching full-on and

1153
00:55:16,720 –> 00:55:19,240
also a householder like you may

1154
00:55:19,240 –> 00:55:22,960
and do you see now that you’re entering

1155
00:55:22,960 –> 00:55:27,070
a different phase and and what is that

1156
00:55:27,070 –> 00:55:29,740
meaning for you as you’re coming yes I

1157
00:55:29,740 –> 00:55:32,680
would say that in life I would be in the

1158
00:55:32,680 –> 00:55:36,580
waning phase of the way waning moon I’ve

1159
00:55:36,580 –> 00:55:38,520
been through my fall

1160
00:55:38,520 –> 00:55:40,570
but I bet you don’t feel like that

1161
00:55:40,570 –> 00:55:42,310
energetically though do you because when

1162
00:55:42,310 –> 00:55:44,170
people look at you they just see this

1163
00:55:44,170 –> 00:55:46,570
energy zooming out your other question

1164
00:55:46,570 –> 00:55:49,619
that’s in the lineup there to do is as

1165
00:55:49,619 –> 00:55:52,270
my body in pain yeah

1166
00:55:52,270 –> 00:55:54,730
well yes ofcourse yeah from this amount

1167
00:55:54,730 –> 00:55:58,869
of you know rigorous physical endeavor

1168
00:55:58,869 –> 00:56:02,020
as long with other stuff too let’s look

1169
00:56:02,020 –> 00:56:04,570
at the phase of the Moon this full moon

1170
00:56:04,570 –> 00:56:07,780
dark moon we saw that the the dark moon

1171
00:56:07,780 –> 00:56:09,550
for me is a special time because that’s

1172
00:56:09,550 –> 00:56:12,849
when yeah those three are aligned and

1173
00:56:12,849 –> 00:56:15,190
such that the earth blocks I mean sorry

1174
00:56:15,190 –> 00:56:17,530
the the moon moon blocks the light of

1175
00:56:17,530 –> 00:56:20,500
the Sun and so if I’m if you’re the Sun

1176
00:56:20,500 –> 00:56:22,900
then the moon’s here and so on the

1177
00:56:22,900 –> 00:56:27,460
waning phase it’s coming down so on the

1178
00:56:27,460 –> 00:56:30,130
waning phase it’s coming this way it’s

1179
00:56:30,130 –> 00:56:31,810
up there on them when we’re seeing it

1180
00:56:31,810 –> 00:56:34,690
from purple Valley and it’s getting so

1181
00:56:34,690 –> 00:56:37,420
close to the Sun we can just see if tiny

1182
00:56:37,420 –> 00:56:39,910
little fingernail before we go into

1183
00:56:39,910 –> 00:56:43,180
practice that’s beautiful and then it

1184
00:56:43,180 –> 00:56:46,839
passes the the Sun that’s and it on the

1185
00:56:46,839 –> 00:56:49,570
passing is the dark moon day and then

1186
00:56:49,570 –> 00:56:51,640
there’s the new moon and the new moon is

1187
00:56:51,640 –> 00:56:53,589
then on the Setting Sun and the evening

1188
00:56:53,589 –> 00:56:55,599
yeah and then that gets built and Bill

1189
00:56:55,599 –> 00:56:59,589
builds up builds up so we could say that

1190
00:56:59,589 –> 00:57:01,420
there is a rhythm to the practice that

1191
00:57:01,420 –> 00:57:04,180
dark moon would be let’s say the end and

1192
00:57:04,180 –> 00:57:05,890
the beginning that would start Menten

1193
00:57:05,890 –> 00:57:08,349
mark the end of a cycle and the

1194
00:57:08,349 –> 00:57:12,160
beginning of the cycle and so really we

1195
00:57:12,160 –> 00:57:14,080
operate by the solar calendar not the

1196
00:57:14,080 –> 00:57:17,230
lunar calendar Dinah’s now arriving on

1197
00:57:17,230 –> 00:57:21,430
Half Moon right so she’s driving it

1198
00:57:21,430 –> 00:57:24,790
quite a good time her her two weeks are

1199
00:57:24,790 –> 00:57:29,859
going to go Chum up to full moon yeah so

1200
00:57:29,859 –> 00:57:32,020
the energy will be going plus you add

1201
00:57:32,020 –> 00:57:33,100
Christmas and

1202
00:57:33,100 –> 00:57:36,040
the whole psychological energy it’s just

1203
00:57:36,040 –> 00:57:39,130
building to that full moon and then

1204
00:57:39,130 –> 00:57:44,500
there will be a decline after that for

1205
00:57:44,500 –> 00:57:46,960
me also if you add Christmas in there

1206
00:57:46,960 –> 00:57:49,300
and the celebratory nature of Christmas

1207
00:57:49,300 –> 00:57:52,300
the food and all that we can see that

1208
00:57:52,300 –> 00:57:53,980
coming up the Christmas is going to be a

1209
00:57:53,980 –> 00:57:57,430
lot easier and flowing after Christmas

1210
00:57:57,430 –> 00:58:00,250
there’s going to be it’s going to be the

1211
00:58:00,250 –> 00:58:05,380
energy is going to be down yeah so and

1212
00:58:05,380 –> 00:58:09,420
if we relate that now to your own

1213
00:58:09,420 –> 00:58:12,820
expanded lifestyle or longevity of

1214
00:58:12,820 –> 00:58:16,750
practice longevity of of being of

1215
00:58:16,750 –> 00:58:20,710
teaching and and giving you know so as a

1216
00:58:20,710 –> 00:58:23,020
role as of teachers a lot of giving to

1217
00:58:23,020 –> 00:58:27,820
and that is continuing on do you feel

1218
00:58:27,820 –> 00:58:32,310
now that okay you got more time for your

1219
00:58:32,310 –> 00:58:36,100
your own practice yes now that you’ve

1220
00:58:36,100 –> 00:58:39,730
you’ve relinquished some other yes stuff

1221
00:58:39,730 –> 00:58:45,340
yes so from being a brahmacari a student

1222
00:58:45,340 –> 00:58:50,080
and athlete I was able to in the worst

1223
00:58:50,080 –> 00:58:52,510
case so now I’ve practiced twice a day

1224
00:58:52,510 –> 00:58:55,180
in the early day in my internet that was

1225
00:58:55,180 –> 00:58:57,310
I’ve heard that a lot of people did that

1226
00:58:57,310 –> 00:58:58,780
you know as though yeah used to do a

1227
00:58:58,780 –> 00:59:00,520
whole primary with Derek in the morning

1228
00:59:00,520 –> 00:59:02,400
and in a second in the afternoon right

1229
00:59:02,400 –> 00:59:07,900
yeah and apparently grew G did teach two

1230
00:59:07,900 –> 00:59:11,140
practices a day but he changed maybe

1231
00:59:11,140 –> 00:59:14,290
because of his workload yeah when I got

1232
00:59:14,290 –> 00:59:18,340
married and had children my practice

1233
00:59:18,340 –> 00:59:23,050
went sure so it was as a brahmacari it’s

1234
00:59:23,050 –> 00:59:28,090
your right to study and it not be

1235
00:59:28,090 –> 00:59:32,170
considered selfish wrote and I was very

1236
00:59:32,170 –> 00:59:34,960
like lucky that I got a good nine years

1237
00:59:34,960 –> 00:59:39,250
in before I became a dad I was already

1238
00:59:39,250 –> 00:59:41,770
starting the fourth series before I

1239
00:59:41,770 –> 00:59:44,920
became a dad here at the point I became

1240
00:59:44,920 –> 00:59:45,400
a dad

1241
00:59:45,400 –> 00:59:46,779
no more postures

1242
00:59:46,779 –> 00:59:48,130
Brewed you didn’t give me any more

1243
00:59:48,130 –> 00:59:51,419
postures we were here with our babies

1244
00:59:51,419 –> 00:59:54,429
but we were here just to get a practice

1245
00:59:54,429 –> 00:59:57,249
because at home everything had to go

1246
00:59:57,249 –> 00:59:59,709
into maintenance yes so I’ve been on

1247
00:59:59,709 –> 01:00:02,890
let’s say a 20 year maintenance cycle

1248
01:00:02,890 –> 01:00:04,900
where I’ve ever been flowed within that

1249
01:00:04,900 –> 01:00:08,409
20 year so India’s now 21 and infants 18

1250
01:00:08,409 –> 01:00:11,339
and a half I am at the end of that real

1251
01:00:11,339 –> 01:00:14,499
hands-on period that a parent has to do

1252
01:00:14,499 –> 01:00:17,109
yeah they are really forging on with

1253
01:00:17,109 –> 01:00:18,699
their lives and all of a sudden I’ve got

1254
01:00:18,699 –> 01:00:24,249
more time during the household phase the

1255
01:00:24,249 –> 01:00:30,130
the families first workers first John

1256
01:00:30,130 –> 01:00:34,089
and his practice is down there but I

1257
01:00:34,089 –> 01:00:36,729
can’t do that without having that so I

1258
01:00:36,729 –> 01:00:38,469
had to have a maintenance practice I

1259
01:00:38,469 –> 01:00:42,400
have to be able to to keep you know but

1260
01:00:42,400 –> 01:00:45,369
also I needed the practice to to

1261
01:00:45,369 –> 01:00:47,199
continue being brahmacari brahmacari

1262
01:00:47,199 –> 01:00:49,479
doesn’t stop it flows in to the growth

1263
01:00:49,479 –> 01:00:51,579
of the growth of the household phase I’m

1264
01:00:51,579 –> 01:00:55,179
still learning and I still had so much

1265
01:00:55,179 –> 01:00:57,609
to internalize from working with grew G

1266
01:00:57,609 –> 01:00:59,169
through that intense period and

1267
01:00:59,169 –> 01:01:02,589
continued with Guruji but this this

1268
01:01:02,589 –> 01:01:05,849
there was so much unpack packing it and

1269
01:01:05,849 –> 01:01:08,849
coming into it but being a teacher

1270
01:01:08,849 –> 01:01:12,009
taking that role on meant that I was

1271
01:01:12,009 –> 01:01:14,819
revisiting revisiting or to use the word

1272
01:01:14,819 –> 01:01:17,799
recounting yes I was recounting all the

1273
01:01:17,799 –> 01:01:21,159
time the practice yeah and so my own

1274
01:01:21,159 –> 01:01:22,959
practice then even though I was on

1275
01:01:22,959 –> 01:01:27,789
maintenance matured so that the depth

1276
01:01:27,789 –> 01:01:31,209
the depth to which you view things and

1277
01:01:31,209 –> 01:01:34,029
they understand behind it which was

1278
01:01:34,029 –> 01:01:35,109
broadening yeah

1279
01:01:35,109 –> 01:01:38,380
and so now so you’ve had that phase as

1280
01:01:38,380 –> 01:01:42,640
such how far into this new phase are you

1281
01:01:42,640 –> 01:01:45,279
and what does it what does it draw up

1282
01:01:45,279 –> 01:01:47,380
for you what a were you seeking from

1283
01:01:47,380 –> 01:01:48,909
this new phase if you are seeking

1284
01:01:48,909 –> 01:01:52,359
something from it what I’m seeking from

1285
01:01:52,359 –> 01:01:54,329
this new phase would be to maintain

1286
01:01:54,329 –> 01:01:59,090
optimum physical health okay

1287
01:01:59,090 –> 01:02:02,220
having a mum that’s passed this year

1288
01:02:02,220 –> 01:02:06,570
with Parkinsons seeing seeing this soul

1289
01:02:06,570 –> 01:02:11,180
trapped in a body who then just looking

1290
01:02:11,180 –> 01:02:15,570
wide-spectrum seeing it’s inevitable

1291
01:02:15,570 –> 01:02:18,150
we’re getting older it’s inevitable that

1292
01:02:18,150 –> 01:02:21,690
the body as a machine is wearing out and

1293
01:02:21,690 –> 01:02:24,810
in some cases breaks down and in some

1294
01:02:24,810 –> 01:02:32,250
cases actually it gets diseased yeah so

1295
01:02:32,250 –> 01:02:35,250
it’s inevitable I’m going to die I don’t

1296
01:02:35,250 –> 01:02:39,330
want to die in in physical suffering

1297
01:02:39,330 –> 01:02:45,300
yeah so I want to to be able to use my

1298
01:02:45,300 –> 01:02:50,940
practice as a as the tool that it is for

1299
01:02:50,940 –> 01:02:56,760
both body breath and mind health if I

1300
01:02:56,760 –> 01:02:59,310
can keep my body fit and healthy then

1301
01:02:59,310 –> 01:03:02,400
I’ll have the energy to to be able to

1302
01:03:02,400 –> 01:03:05,760
work longer so my longevity yeah as a

1303
01:03:05,760 –> 01:03:08,100
teacher if I keep my body then my

1304
01:03:08,100 –> 01:03:10,980
breaths going to still be healthy which

1305
01:03:10,980 –> 01:03:14,490
then means my ability to balance my mind

1306
01:03:14,490 –> 01:03:17,820
out yeah have some clarity in my mind

1307
01:03:17,820 –> 01:03:20,880
keep my mind alive and active and does

1308
01:03:20,880 –> 01:03:22,920
it because I know as I’m getting older

1309
01:03:22,920 –> 01:03:29,270
my my physical drive to do things

1310
01:03:29,270 –> 01:03:32,070
diminishes shall we say like I could put

1311
01:03:32,070 –> 01:03:34,590
much more energy into things or much

1312
01:03:34,590 –> 01:03:38,790
more focus even maybe I think you know

1313
01:03:38,790 –> 01:03:41,910
when I was younger then I then I do now

1314
01:03:41,910 –> 01:03:44,360
I but maybe it’s just that I’m more

1315
01:03:44,360 –> 01:03:48,060
accepting now than I was then whereas

1316
01:03:48,060 –> 01:03:52,050
when you’re young you sort of just forge

1317
01:03:52,050 –> 01:03:55,680
forward but a you you have that sort of

1318
01:03:55,680 –> 01:03:57,900
feeling do you need more motivation now

1319
01:03:57,900 –> 01:04:02,430
or is it you you just like a Jura cells

1320
01:04:02,430 –> 01:04:06,900
somebody really really easy just to sit

1321
01:04:06,900 –> 01:04:08,850
– yeah right

1322
01:04:08,850 –> 01:04:11,280
because I’m still doing physical work

1323
01:04:11,280 –> 01:04:15,990
yes I still have to keep myself strong

1324
01:04:15,990 –> 01:04:19,080
yeah so when Guruji said ten years third

1325
01:04:19,080 –> 01:04:21,810
series so ten years of studied third

1326
01:04:21,810 –> 01:04:24,210
years I mean advanced practitioner to be

1327
01:04:24,210 –> 01:04:26,820
a teacher yep your body needs to be

1328
01:04:26,820 –> 01:04:30,420
strong because yes not only need to keep

1329
01:04:30,420 –> 01:04:33,030
up that level of quality of practice but

1330
01:04:33,030 –> 01:04:35,670
also the all the adjusting and

1331
01:04:35,670 –> 01:04:37,260
everything sir have you toll on the body

1332
01:04:37,260 –> 01:04:40,200
that’s a practice in itself yeah being

1333
01:04:40,200 –> 01:04:43,200
the support the structure the male

1334
01:04:43,200 –> 01:04:45,930
dancer to the or the the Shiva to the

1335
01:04:45,930 –> 01:04:48,720
Shakti energy you know so the student is

1336
01:04:48,720 –> 01:04:51,150
the is the Shakti the student is the

1337
01:04:51,150 –> 01:04:54,480
energy in moving into form yeah and so

1338
01:04:54,480 –> 01:04:56,640
then the the teacher is the one that’s

1339
01:04:56,640 –> 01:04:58,530
the the light that’s a looming we’re

1340
01:04:58,530 –> 01:05:02,160
seeing that but at the same time before

1341
01:05:02,160 –> 01:05:04,770
standing back and seeing it is the

1342
01:05:04,770 –> 01:05:08,130
scaffolding you know setting up the

1343
01:05:08,130 –> 01:05:10,740
scaffolding for that that creation to

1344
01:05:10,740 –> 01:05:16,160
then be self supported here my own

1345
01:05:16,160 –> 01:05:21,140
practice is a part of being human is

1346
01:05:21,140 –> 01:05:23,820
being able to move in this body we are

1347
01:05:23,820 –> 01:05:27,540
separate to like a plant as rooted we

1348
01:05:27,540 –> 01:05:30,210
can we can repot ourself everywhere

1349
01:05:30,210 –> 01:05:32,760
wherever you want and I look at I look

1350
01:05:32,760 –> 01:05:36,270
at horses for example and I see a horse

1351
01:05:36,270 –> 01:05:40,470
running in the wild and you go that’s

1352
01:05:40,470 –> 01:05:44,010
being hoarseness yeah seeing a dog

1353
01:05:44,010 –> 01:05:46,980
seeing a dog being fit and healthy being

1354
01:05:46,980 –> 01:05:51,960
dogness what is it to be human ‘no see a

1355
01:05:51,960 –> 01:05:56,370
lot of fat sick yes

1356
01:05:56,370 –> 01:05:59,430
injured heavy bodies not literally

1357
01:05:59,430 –> 01:06:01,440
healthy any about heavy in weight but

1358
01:06:01,440 –> 01:06:04,260
also heavy into the earth yes I go what

1359
01:06:04,260 –> 01:06:06,510
has happened to the species we’re a

1360
01:06:06,510 –> 01:06:09,600
species so then I look at our dogs and

1361
01:06:09,600 –> 01:06:13,830
go okay that dog is too domesticated so

1362
01:06:13,830 –> 01:06:16,080
we get too domesticated we have things

1363
01:06:16,080 –> 01:06:18,750
doing things for ourselves we lose our

1364
01:06:18,750 –> 01:06:22,680
relationship to earth and gravity and so

1365
01:06:22,680 –> 01:06:24,660
you and I are both sitting here

1366
01:06:24,660 –> 01:06:26,340
like two young men were sitting nice and

1367
01:06:26,340 –> 01:06:30,690
tall well better than two young men yes

1368
01:06:30,690 –> 01:06:33,690
yeah you got a few years on me yet and

1369
01:06:33,690 –> 01:06:35,370
I’m still gonna Colton I haven’t even

1370
01:06:35,370 –> 01:06:37,860
started with this yet so they’re timing

1371
01:06:37,860 –> 01:06:39,900
yeah but here we are we are able to

1372
01:06:39,900 –> 01:06:42,240
we’re sitting healthy letting you

1373
01:06:42,240 –> 01:06:44,400
because we have a physical discipline

1374
01:06:44,400 –> 01:06:47,790
and so it’s that realization that if I

1375
01:06:47,790 –> 01:06:50,090
don’t get up in the morning to practice

1376
01:06:50,090 –> 01:06:52,470
I’ve practiced this morning’s to

1377
01:06:52,470 –> 01:06:55,260
Saturday morning I took Friday morning

1378
01:06:55,260 –> 01:06:57,450
off yesterday the last day of the

1379
01:06:57,450 –> 01:06:59,850
retreat we just went to the beach and

1380
01:06:59,850 –> 01:07:02,040
celebrated we got a nice well done pat

1381
01:07:02,040 –> 01:07:03,930
button on the back celebration was good

1382
01:07:03,930 –> 01:07:06,720
with the chests out Oh with the chest

1383
01:07:06,720 –> 01:07:11,400
Lutron as much as me and so this morning

1384
01:07:11,400 –> 01:07:14,930
because my body is in pain sting yeah I

1385
01:07:14,930 –> 01:07:18,870
I need to do my practice and that’s good

1386
01:07:18,870 –> 01:07:21,060
for other people to hear because you

1387
01:07:21,060 –> 01:07:22,830
know we sometimes put teachers on a

1388
01:07:22,830 –> 01:07:25,500
pedestal and say that they must they’re

1389
01:07:25,500 –> 01:07:27,780
sort of perfect it must be so nice to be

1390
01:07:27,780 –> 01:07:29,340
in their bodies everything looks so easy

1391
01:07:29,340 –> 01:07:32,670
and but and I found the same you know on

1392
01:07:32,670 –> 01:07:34,290
the I’ve been lucky enough now to

1393
01:07:34,290 –> 01:07:36,360
massage you know lots of the top

1394
01:07:36,360 –> 01:07:39,360
teachers and their bodies basically the

1395
01:07:39,360 –> 01:07:41,550
same as ours and not oh you know

1396
01:07:41,550 –> 01:07:44,730
excessively strong or excessively so

1397
01:07:44,730 –> 01:07:46,560
much more space here so much more space

1398
01:07:46,560 –> 01:07:49,980
there there’s seem very very similar yet

1399
01:07:49,980 –> 01:07:52,410
so two questions are coming out of this

1400
01:07:52,410 –> 01:07:57,660
what is it a that you feel is that

1401
01:07:57,660 –> 01:08:00,920
difference between being able to excel

1402
01:08:00,920 –> 01:08:03,080
physically in the body that we have

1403
01:08:03,080 –> 01:08:05,460
considering maybe that they are actually

1404
01:08:05,460 –> 01:08:10,910
very similar and and and be you know

1405
01:08:10,910 –> 01:08:14,960
what is it that you are

1406
01:08:14,960 –> 01:08:21,529
I’ve lost my mind let me just answer a a

1407
01:08:21,529 –> 01:08:25,800
it was it be that’s a because I probably

1408
01:08:25,800 –> 01:08:33,210
won’t ask about the man it’s always do

1409
01:08:33,210 –> 01:08:39,960
um what I want to say is that in

1410
01:08:39,960 –> 01:08:42,120
carrying on from that we are human we

1411
01:08:42,120 –> 01:08:44,670
are a species we are wood but the thing

1412
01:08:44,670 –> 01:08:47,130
with the human condition all of that

1413
01:08:47,130 –> 01:08:50,609
cycle psychological stuff all that

1414
01:08:50,609 –> 01:08:53,939
trauma that we have is coming with us

1415
01:08:53,939 –> 01:08:57,990
onto the map yeah so I also want to say

1416
01:08:57,990 –> 01:09:02,490
that my body let’s differentiate yes I

1417
01:09:02,490 –> 01:09:05,609
have pain in my body right now

1418
01:09:05,609 –> 01:09:09,770
no pain no the pain that’s in my body is

1419
01:09:09,770 –> 01:09:16,399
due to its manifesting through my work

1420
01:09:16,399 –> 01:09:20,850
row so I’ve got pain in my back hip so s

1421
01:09:20,850 –> 01:09:25,859
from all the lifting that I’m doing this

1422
01:09:25,859 –> 01:09:28,200
is what adjusting them adjusting yes so

1423
01:09:28,200 –> 01:09:29,880
my even practice is not the personal

1424
01:09:29,880 –> 01:09:32,160
practice so my personal practice is not

1425
01:09:32,160 –> 01:09:37,740
injuring me no but I’m not going to

1426
01:09:37,740 –> 01:09:42,450
blame either the practice or the

1427
01:09:42,450 –> 01:09:44,460
teaching and adjusting of the practice

1428
01:09:44,460 –> 01:09:48,630
as the cause of the injury no I want to

1429
01:09:48,630 –> 01:09:51,660
make that clear yeah even if I have a

1430
01:09:51,660 –> 01:09:54,480
student that’s in pain and let’s say

1431
01:09:54,480 –> 01:09:57,900
they’ve they’ve misunderstood how the

1432
01:09:57,900 –> 01:10:00,030
body works in the anatomy and they’ve

1433
01:10:00,030 –> 01:10:02,400
hurt their knee yes I’m not going to

1434
01:10:02,400 –> 01:10:05,760
necessarily blame the practice for that

1435
01:10:05,760 –> 01:10:09,030
knee yeah it happened in practice that

1436
01:10:09,030 –> 01:10:12,720
it came up yep let’s say the karmic

1437
01:10:12,720 –> 01:10:17,690
seeds are going off I hurt in my body

1438
01:10:17,690 –> 01:10:20,700
purely and simply because of the stuff

1439
01:10:20,700 –> 01:10:23,610
that I have not yet dealt with or

1440
01:10:23,610 –> 01:10:26,880
processed yet right or I’m in the

1441
01:10:26,880 –> 01:10:28,500
process of going through

1442
01:10:28,500 –> 01:10:34,890
yeah so in the last two years I have

1443
01:10:34,890 –> 01:10:37,500
separated from Lucy and divorced from

1444
01:10:37,500 –> 01:10:42,030
Lucy I’ve lost a mother my mother died

1445
01:10:42,030 –> 01:10:46,170
this year my kids are on the stage of

1446
01:10:46,170 –> 01:10:50,310
going into their lives I’m I’m managing

1447
01:10:50,310 –> 01:10:51,690
two houses

1448
01:10:51,690 –> 01:10:53,520
I live with my daughter and a boyfriend

1449
01:10:53,520 –> 01:10:55,860
I’m in and out of the house I don’t have

1450
01:10:55,860 –> 01:10:57,300
a secure house

1451
01:10:57,300 –> 01:10:59,390
I have money issues and family

1452
01:10:59,390 –> 01:11:01,980
responsibilities all going on at the

1453
01:11:01,980 –> 01:11:03,450
same time yeah

1454
01:11:03,450 –> 01:11:05,550
and I’m carrying it all on my back right

1455
01:11:05,550 –> 01:11:08,580
and then it manifests itself on the mat

1456
01:11:08,580 –> 01:11:11,780
it manifests on the mat or in my work

1457
01:11:11,780 –> 01:11:16,950
and so what it is is that each day that

1458
01:11:16,950 –> 01:11:18,840
we stand on that mat and practice we

1459
01:11:18,840 –> 01:11:21,720
meet ourselves and we need to remind

1460
01:11:21,720 –> 01:11:24,270
ourselves like an explorer here for the

1461
01:11:24,270 –> 01:11:26,070
first time again what am I going to

1462
01:11:26,070 –> 01:11:30,870
discover today about myself not seeing

1463
01:11:30,870 –> 01:11:33,030
the goal of getting that sharper leg in

1464
01:11:33,030 –> 01:11:36,180
the triangle or the handstand or the the

1465
01:11:36,180 –> 01:11:38,970
deeper backbend holding my knees if we

1466
01:11:38,970 –> 01:11:41,700
go in with that intention then it’s a

1467
01:11:41,700 –> 01:11:43,830
material gain we need to set our

1468
01:11:43,830 –> 01:11:46,560
intention at the beginning that I’m here

1469
01:11:46,560 –> 01:11:49,500
processing my life I’m here to process

1470
01:11:49,500 –> 01:11:51,870
my life to find out really what I am

1471
01:11:51,870 –> 01:11:54,960
miss identifying with I’m identifying

1472
01:11:54,960 –> 01:11:57,260
with all the wrong stuff

1473
01:11:57,260 –> 01:12:00,830
the way that I didn’t have mudita or

1474
01:12:00,830 –> 01:12:04,020
opium when I was looking at the way my

1475
01:12:04,020 –> 01:12:07,220
mum died or going through divorce or or

1476
01:12:07,220 –> 01:12:09,870
how the bank counters yeah

1477
01:12:09,870 –> 01:12:13,170
paying taxes I you know really I want to

1478
01:12:13,170 –> 01:12:15,900
swear at the tax man amount of money

1479
01:12:15,900 –> 01:12:17,790
that a tax man takes and how much I have

1480
01:12:17,790 –> 01:12:21,900
to pay in tax anybody in Norway has no

1481
01:12:21,900 –> 01:12:24,510
sympathy for their taxes like up here

1482
01:12:24,510 –> 01:12:27,720
somewhere so you know we all have stuffs

1483
01:12:27,720 –> 01:12:30,870
gee yeah and if we if we keep pushing it

1484
01:12:30,870 –> 01:12:32,850
down it’ll just come later

1485
01:12:32,850 –> 01:12:36,450
yeah so we’re not thinking because also

1486
01:12:36,450 –> 01:12:38,520
we want to be focused in the practice

1487
01:12:38,520 –> 01:12:40,860
don’t leave so it’s not like a time to

1488
01:12:40,860 –> 01:12:42,010
like go on

1489
01:12:42,010 –> 01:12:44,260
daydream about all your shit in the in

1490
01:12:44,260 –> 01:12:46,990
the practice either but as you say it’s

1491
01:12:46,990 –> 01:12:51,790
about more subtly exploit exploration as

1492
01:12:51,790 –> 01:12:54,070
am i right along those lines form is

1493
01:12:54,070 –> 01:12:56,140
emptiness emptiness is form when we go

1494
01:12:56,140 –> 01:12:59,320
into their practice and if we use the

1495
01:12:59,320 –> 01:13:01,720
techniques that GRU you gave us first

1496
01:13:01,720 –> 01:13:04,860
Sutra I would say is yoga’s mind control

1497
01:13:04,860 –> 01:13:08,890
second suture is breathing system third

1498
01:13:08,890 –> 01:13:12,730
sutra is countered method fourth Sutra

1499
01:13:12,730 –> 01:13:17,700
is Tristana the fifth Sutra is vinyasa

1500
01:13:17,700 –> 01:13:21,040
vinyasa is that Tristana that try focus

1501
01:13:21,040 –> 01:13:25,930
of the countered choreograph breath

1502
01:13:25,930 –> 01:13:28,990
movement with conscious awareness that

1503
01:13:28,990 –> 01:13:34,120
brings you into a neutrality into that

1504
01:13:34,120 –> 01:13:37,090
neutral Eclipse to place when I get

1505
01:13:37,090 –> 01:13:41,500
there through my techniques John 36 not

1506
01:13:41,500 –> 01:13:44,980
58 no so when I actually get in the zone

1507
01:13:44,980 –> 01:13:49,710
on timeless because prana doesn’t know

1508
01:13:49,710 –> 01:13:54,660
yesterday tomorrow prana only knows now

1509
01:13:54,660 –> 01:13:59,260
prana doesn’t know five years of age

1510
01:13:59,260 –> 01:14:02,980
ninety five years of age prana doesn’t

1511
01:14:02,980 –> 01:14:04,990
know the difference between forward bend

1512
01:14:04,990 –> 01:14:08,380
and back bend yet we’ll put a preference

1513
01:14:08,380 –> 01:14:11,650
or an aversion to one of one of the

1514
01:14:11,650 –> 01:14:15,430
other yeah and we’ll then load up the

1515
01:14:15,430 –> 01:14:17,140
preference of back bending to the

1516
01:14:17,140 –> 01:14:19,390
aversion of forward bending or it might

1517
01:14:19,390 –> 01:14:22,420
just be the complete opposite yeah but

1518
01:14:22,420 –> 01:14:24,250
the both of them are exactly the same

1519
01:14:24,250 –> 01:14:26,040
it’s just like strawberry or chocolate

1520
01:14:26,040 –> 01:14:29,590
we’re going to have an experience not

1521
01:14:29,590 –> 01:14:32,640
getting caught up with having the choice

1522
01:14:32,640 –> 01:14:36,130
yeah getting stuck with the choice go

1523
01:14:36,130 –> 01:14:37,780
for the experience and if it’s the wrong

1524
01:14:37,780 –> 01:14:41,820
thing just give it your all anyway

1525
01:14:41,820 –> 01:14:44,770
Karolina came up with a question for me

1526
01:14:44,770 –> 01:14:46,600
to ask you and this is like complete

1527
01:14:46,600 –> 01:14:47,410
change of topic

1528
01:14:47,410 –> 01:14:50,530
she said ask John about the fact that he

1529
01:14:50,530 –> 01:14:53,800
can’t sing and that sting had to teach

1530
01:14:53,800 –> 01:14:55,060
him how to to

1531
01:14:55,060 –> 01:14:57,670
Singh is that a true story or folk

1532
01:14:57,670 –> 01:15:01,210
legend he said to me one day after I’d

1533
01:15:01,210 –> 01:15:02,950
given him such a difficult time about

1534
01:15:02,950 –> 01:15:06,340
breathing right he said to me come on

1535
01:15:06,340 –> 01:15:10,810
John I’ll teach you how to arm and that

1536
01:15:10,810 –> 01:15:14,860
was it’s a beautiful memory it was and I

1537
01:15:14,860 –> 01:15:18,480
think it was either the lake house or

1538
01:15:18,480 –> 01:15:21,850
Tuscany one of the showers was a steam

1539
01:15:21,850 –> 01:15:27,250
shower right with double size shower two

1540
01:15:27,250 –> 01:15:30,820
seats steam jet in the middle so there

1541
01:15:30,820 –> 01:15:33,700
we go sting and John go in sit naked

1542
01:15:33,700 –> 01:15:37,450
opposite one another and we don’t learn

1543
01:15:37,450 –> 01:15:41,080
to on so first of all he said you yuan

1544
01:15:41,080 –> 01:15:44,470
and I did my John on and then sting came

1545
01:15:44,470 –> 01:15:47,140
in on top of that and it was like I’d I

1546
01:15:47,140 –> 01:15:50,650
just I just stopped and just went wow

1547
01:15:50,650 –> 01:15:56,650
sting and he said imagine your cranium

1548
01:15:56,650 –> 01:15:58,080
like a vault

1549
01:15:58,080 –> 01:16:01,000
imagine your your cranium like a vault

1550
01:16:01,000 –> 01:16:03,910
and almost being like that dome that you

1551
01:16:03,910 –> 01:16:07,420
see in the stars and find the place

1552
01:16:07,420 –> 01:16:11,670
where your voice ring that resonates and

1553
01:16:11,670 –> 01:16:15,250
so we started all mning again and he

1554
01:16:15,250 –> 01:16:17,800
would come and come in come in and it

1555
01:16:17,800 –> 01:16:20,800
was like we were in an orchestra it was

1556
01:16:20,800 –> 01:16:24,010
amazing absolutely beautiful so since

1557
01:16:24,010 –> 01:16:30,640
then I’ve accepted this is what my voice

1558
01:16:30,640 –> 01:16:33,880
sounds like yes you can you can hear by

1559
01:16:33,880 –> 01:16:36,430
my gravelly groan II talk you can’t

1560
01:16:36,430 –> 01:16:38,380
imagine what mode would be like what I

1561
01:16:38,380 –> 01:16:41,170
realize is not to try and be some other

1562
01:16:41,170 –> 01:16:44,980
singer yeah the moment I try and do some

1563
01:16:44,980 –> 01:16:50,410
other singing then it’s not going to

1564
01:16:50,410 –> 01:16:53,650
work I have to I have to come from where

1565
01:16:53,650 –> 01:16:57,190
it is and accept it as it is and when I

1566
01:16:57,190 –> 01:16:58,660
really accept it as it is without

1567
01:16:58,660 –> 01:17:01,300
judging it then of course that will open

1568
01:17:01,300 –> 01:17:03,190
it opens up so sometimes in the class

1569
01:17:03,190 –> 01:17:04,600
when we’re doing some good chanting

1570
01:17:04,600 –> 01:17:06,460
people have come to me afterwards and

1571
01:17:06,460 –> 01:17:07,790
said

1572
01:17:07,790 –> 01:17:14,990
laughter John really because you’re

1573
01:17:14,990 –> 01:17:17,120
being true to yourself yeah and not

1574
01:17:17,120 –> 01:17:18,500
being inhibited yeah

1575
01:17:18,500 –> 01:17:21,290
and letting it be free yeah and am I

1576
01:17:21,290 –> 01:17:23,540
good used to say no singing you just to

1577
01:17:23,540 –> 01:17:26,870
say chanting not singing yeah it was

1578
01:17:26,870 –> 01:17:29,390
sort of more of a monotone but there was

1579
01:17:29,390 –> 01:17:34,130
definitely a rhythm or a beat

1580
01:17:34,130 –> 01:17:35,900
yeah yeah two beats to one beat yeah

1581
01:17:35,900 –> 01:17:39,890
yeah yeah yeah so we could do one

1582
01:17:39,890 –> 01:17:42,830
actually we can do one go and then we do

1583
01:17:42,830 –> 01:17:44,570

is just shit a what it means to me is a

1593
01:18:14,530 –> 01:18:18,680
metaphor of Guruji’s yoga mala yeah

1594
01:18:18,680 –> 01:18:20,750
every bead is to be counted and

1595
01:18:20,750 –> 01:18:23,450
meditated on every postures like a bead

1596
01:18:23,450 –> 01:18:25,820
every vinyasa is like a bead to be

1597
01:18:25,820 –> 01:18:27,680
counted and meditated on the posture

1598
01:18:27,680 –> 01:18:29,390
itself if I did have a Christmas red

1599
01:18:29,390 –> 01:18:31,400
bead there whether it would be to put

1600
01:18:31,400 –> 01:18:34,310
the flower or the pose and that’s also

1601
01:18:34,310 –> 01:18:39,230
to be meditated on every posture has a

1602
01:18:39,230 –> 01:18:43,400
beginning a life and an end birth life

1603
01:18:43,400 –> 01:18:47,510
death we all then come into this world

1604
01:18:47,510 –> 01:18:49,760
to do when we ask who am i what am I

1605
01:18:49,760 –> 01:18:52,610
where am I so those questions where am I

1606
01:18:52,610 –> 01:18:54,590
