Morning! Before going to work today I was looking at videos on YouTube.com about yoga. Recently I have pondered a lot about self-inspection and self-analysis. This theme ties in deeply with the Samhain ritual last week, and the idea that with self-analysis and meditation we can begin anew. Samhain is the Witche’s New Year, and a new beginning for banish the negativity of our minds and souls. Analyzing ourselves is good and bad. Obviously over analysis is never healthy, but when done with reflection, forgiveness, and love, I believe it can be very helpful in eradicating unwanted thoughts and behavior.
I stumbled upon this video, and wanted to share it. Swami Sivananda (1887-1963), was a Hindu spiritual teacher and yogi. In 1936 he founded the Divine Life Society, and wrote over 200 books. This video is a speech that Swami Sivananda made about self-analysis, and it hit so deeply that I immediately started to write. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and that you take away a bit of wisdom from it.
