Experiencing Yoga (Meditation) In Different Karmas (Actions)
To perform good and perfect actions we use both spiritual knowledge and spiritual power in a practical form (called karma yoga). Given below are some examples of the same:
If you are involved in a karma where you have to give full attention and concentration to your work e.g. working on a computer – in this situation, just for one minute concentrate your consciousness on the question “Who am I?”. Concentrate on the thought of yourself as a peaceful, pure and loveful soul. Emerge your real consciousness. Try to do this once every hour. You could wear a digital watch, which will assist you in doing the same by reminding you after every one hour with a soft beep.
If you are involved in a karma where you do not have to give full attention and concentration to your work, practice, for as much time as possible, being the soul, a being of spiritual light, between the eyebrows, radiating vibrations of peace and purity towards the universe.
While cooking, have the consciousness of the Supreme Being, the Supreme Beloved, for whom I am preparing food.
To perform good and perfect actions we use both spiritual knowledge and power in a practical form (called karma yoga). Given below are some more examples of the same:
While interacting with others, have the awareness of the soul, a being of light, situated at the center of the forehead, radiating rays of might or power towards other souls or beings of light.
While writing, have the awareness of the Supreme Soul or God speaking to you and making you work. And also practice, “I the soul am writing through these hands, my instruments.”
While listening, in any situation, have the consciousness that I the soul, am listening through these physical ears.
While bathing, have the consciousness of being the soul, the deity, cleaning the temple of the body.
We need to pay attention that we do not do any action that creates wasteful thoughts in the minds of others. The above karma yoga practice will help us in doing that. If our actions create wasteful thoughts, then this becomes a burden for us and as a result we cannot remain light.
