Yoga Social Media, staying connected…

At its heart, Facebook is a most beautiful and touching phenomenon. Yoga Social Media bears witness to our longing for family and community  and sharing and liking. Share. Like. Share. Like. What lovely mantras Рand everybody practicing together.

The ancient yoga scriptures describe the soul as having two faces- one always gazing at the Divine and one looking out into the world. The work of the soul is to soak up every drop of spiritual experience shining through mundane existence.  And when the last molecule has been absorbed by the soul it returns to Source and merges with the infinite.

The internet is Indra’s Net – a web of multifaceted jewels that is rapidly, now, reflecting all our innermost worlds into the cyberverse. We’re coming to know ourselves deeply and the experiences that unite us are spiritual on every level.

It is the spiritual dimension that has been missing from the equation and its presence or absence defines the importance of every situation we see. Spirituality is the blackboard on which all of the equations have always been written. We just couldn’t see it. Now, we can.

Thank you, yoga social media. Thank you Facebook. Thank you, Internet. Share. Like. Share. Like.;)
