Two Birds on the Tree of Life – Higher Self – Soul, Lower Self – Ego

Lower selfego, individual self   – Higher self – soul, universal self

Meditate on Mascaro’s translation of Mundaka Upanishad, Part three Chapter 1, V1 to 3

“There are two birds, two sweet friends, who dwell on the self same tree.  One eats the fruits thereof, and the other looks on in silence.

The first is the human soul, who is resting on the tree, though active, feels sad in his unwisdom. But on beholding the power and the glory of the higher spirit, he becomes free from sorrow”

Take some time to meditate and consider these words.  Seek to reflect on your higher self and acknowledge your lower self and how it impacts on your life.

The Soul Bird Book Review

Ancient Sanskrit Poem – Look well to this day

Ancient Sanskrit Poem

Photo –  Ancient Town Hall, Naxos, Greece – special memories with my special yoga friend Penny

Look well to this day, for it is life

the very best of life

in its brief course lie all

the realities & truths of existence

the joy of growth, the splendour of action,

the glory of power

For yesterday is but a memory & tomorrow is only a vision

but if well-lived, makes every yesterday a memory of happiness & every tomorrow

a vision of hope look well therefore to this day

Ancient Sanskrit Poem

Meditate on this – The Journey by Mary Oliver

One day you finally knew

what you had to do, and began,

though the voices around you

kept shouting

their bad advice –

though the whole house

began to tremble

and you felt the old tug

at your ankles

“Mend my life!”

each voice cried.

But you didn’t stop.

You knew what you had to do.

though the wind pried

with its stiff fingers

at the very foundations,

though their melancholy

was terrible.

It was already late

enough, and a wild night,

and the road full of fallen branches and stones.

But little by little,

as you left their voices behind,

the stars began to burn

through the sheets in the clouds,

and there was a new voice

which slowly

recognized your own,

that kept you company

as you strode deeper and deeper into the world,

determined to do

the only thing you could do –

determined to save

the only life you could save.

Dynamic Mudra Mantra

During this mudra (yoga hand gesture) the fingers move accompanied with mantra Sa, Ta, Na, Ma. As you exhale place one of your fingertips on the tip of each thumb. While inhaling extend the fingers again. Co-ordinate this with the mantra syllables;

Speaking ‘Saa’ press together the thumb and index finger;

Speaking ‘Taa’ use middle finger and thumb;

Speaking ‘Naa’ use ring finger and thumb;

Speaking ‘Maa’ use little finger and thumb.

Use both hands and practice this dynamic mudra mantra for 5 to 30 minutes.

This dynamic mudra is used to promote brain activity and to relax the nervous system. It promotes concentration and creates a feel of inner calmness.

Aim to breathe slowly and focus on an even inhale and exhale. Breathing slowly will help your body and mind to relax.

Give it try. Notice how you feel.
