Who is a Yogi?

Everyone wants and craves for attention, affection. appreciation and acceptance.
One who is beyond  these, is a yogi.

Talking to the self

                                        
Talking to the self is very important.
We all, quite often do talk to ourselves.
But when we do, which ‘self’ do we talk to?
The real self or the superficial self; that we commonly identify ourselves with?
Normally we talk to our superficial self which is consisted of body and the upper layer of the mind, commonly known as ‘ man’ or mana.
While talking to the superficial self, we are either remembering the past or planning the future; remembering some old happy moments or anticipating the new ones; complaining about the situation or how unfair, ungrateful and selfish other people are etc.
  Of course, this kind of talk is not very helpful.
Talking to the self should mean talking to the real or spiritual self.
  That is only possible by quieting the mana, or the mind and going deep into the ‘Self’.

Showing Emotions

when we grow, in age and grace, we usually try to hide our emotions. 
We think that showing our emotions is childish and immature.

But yesterday, our master showed us that there is nothing wrong in showing emotions. That it is alright to tell the world how we feel. There is no need to hide it. Maturity of grace is not in  hiding but accepting the facts.

He showed that great responsibilities come with great positions which may sometimes change the way how we treat certain people and interact even in close relationships. We must fulfill our duties and responsibilities and act as is expected even if we do not feel comfortable.
