Spiritual Hindu Perspective
by Yog Maya
Seeing Through Maya
My name is Yog Maya and I am from India. My name means what you have been learning and teaching all through; it means that when you are in union (Yog-the Sanskrit word for Union) with your Higher Being, you overcome all illusions (Maya - the Sanskrit word for illusion).
In Hindu mythology the Goddess Yog Maya is considered the sister of Lord Krishna. Incidentally the word Krishna means center (of your being; one that was never born, never dies). He is considered the Poorna avatar in Hinduism. This means a man who has completely found the centre of his being, who has realized he is God.
One of the most important lines from the Bhagvad Gita explains LOA perfectly: karmanye vadhikarasye, ma faleshu kadachanam. It means do what feels good to you and don't worry about the outcome. I just realized a week ago that I have 100 % control over my reality and thus I would never want to hurt myself and thus life is all joy.
I reached your website through Inward Quest. I first got acquainted with LOA in 2013 through Melody Fletcher's blog Deliberate Receiving, then moved on to Brandon Olivares' blog, and finally here I am. Reading your blog feels so blissful, it's like the final pieces of the puzzle are falling together and I can begin to have unconditional fun.
In Hinduism a person who has attained enlightenment (light presence) is called Swami X Ananda (for example Swami Vivek Ananda would mean I (swa) that is all there is (ami) have attained bliss/joy (ananda) by walking on the path of intelligence (vivek).
Just felt like sharing this and I just love your website for re-minding me about joy. As they say, 'When the student is ready, the teacher appears', and you /your blog have arrived in my life at just the right moment. Thanks a lot.
