The Yoga of the Lover and the Beloved by Ram Giri

There is no time better than now to remember that in your heart lies the immense potential of all the unconditional love that is possible. And the wisdom to use it.

Imagine that!
You have a Buddha inside of you.
The second coming of Christ can take place—where else?—in your heart!

What could you do with that love, that higher awareness, if you knew how?

You could heal your own life.
You could find peace in that busy, stressed-out mind of yours.
You could end all the fear, sadness and guilt.
You could help your body be healthy, strong and beautiful.
You could actually become happy.
You could enlighten yourself!

And it wouldn’t stop there. It would radiate from you into your relationships, into your world.
You would be the light that everyone is looking for.
Imagine that!

But you’re caught inside you. You’re caught in your negative emotions and thoughts.
You’re the sun imagining you’re a fire fly.
You’re the vast ocean, constantly worried about a little wave.

You are boxed in by your stressful thoughts and emotions. They are the prison that keeps your heart constrained until you deal with them and resolve them.
Break down that jail of your heart!

How is it done?

Dissolve the obstacles at their source and don’t get caught up in why it’s the way it is. That long story of your suffering is no longer necessary.
It’s not the “why” but the “how” that matters now. How do you change what you feel, who you are, now?

Back to the tremendous healing potential of your heart, the most powerful medicine of all. How can you tap into that?

Take some time. Become still.
Go to a troubling emotion. Feel what’s going on inside you. Notice the strongest body sensation.
Do it now. Be gentle.

If you don’t go to them, how will your emotions ever heal? By talking about them, you say? You’ve tried that.

Ready to go on?
Be present with that sensation. Realize that it’s not a threat, ever. So what is it? It’s a part of you that needs help.
So go to it, OPEN up to it, and pay ATTENTION. Feel it. Be with it. That is the opposite of what you have been doing so far.

When you open to it and pay attention, then what happens? Notice that.
You may notice that it weakens.
Take your time, be gentle, do a little bit of it at a time. In small steps, this is the application of love to what hurts you. This is the best medicine—and you are the doctor.
The feeling may move from place to place in your body. Go with it. Be still. Give yourself this powerful but gentle healing.

So now there are two parts of you, two poles:

The first one is this stressful sensation, this complex of negative thoughts, emotions and behavior. That’s your “stuff.” Everyone has stuff.

The other pole is the depth of your heart, with its amazing healing power, its deep peace, its profound presence of unconditional love. That’s who you really are.

So can you sense your heart of hearts, the Source of healing?
And can you feel that knot in the stomach (or wherever it is), that source of pain.
Now connect the two in your mind. Imagine the immense light in your heart shining into that knot, the place of darkness, the pain.

Let the light dissolve the darkness. It will.

Stay with it, become still. Give yourself this essence of the heart, this nectar. And become totally receptive to that love, open up to it in the place of your pain.

This is true yoga, true union.

This is the holy grail of all healing. You are the cosmic lover and the human beloved. In that inner embrace you are one.
Darkness (and pain) cannot stand up for long to the light. When the light penetrates, the darkness is gone.

Love yourself enough to give you this revolutionary medicine. Be among those who know how to use the great healing power that slumbers inside you.

With love,

Ram Giri
