One of the most profound and important experiences in life is that of Aloneness, and it is what we will deeply explore in the video below. Aloneness is an actual state, which should not be confused with loneliness. Loneliness, which is the result of incessant ego-centric thinking, is a feeling of being completely isolated from the Universe. Loneliness is a feeling of despair, pain and emptiness, and perhaps what we are actually running from all the time, but Aloneness is something completely different. It is the feeling of being connected directly with the Universe, Life and Nature with no-one and nothing in between. As much as Loneliness is a curse, Aloneness is a blessing.

A poem describing a recent experience of God, Death, Purpose and the Beyond.
Beyond Life and Death
It came upon sweetly,
an oh so familiar sight.
Patterns of brilliant shapes,
all made of splendid light.
The symmetry was bewildering,
the mathematics of God.
Moving in every direction,
leaving one dazed and awed.
The patterns took on colors,
red, white, yellow and blue.
Was that an Angel that I spotted,
amongst the spectacular hue?
The beauty of the Angel,
was a sight to behold.
Unmeasurable and almost painful
more than a heart can hold.
Then came the white light,
pure, clear and blinding.
Remind myself I did,
that there was no reason for hiding.

One such great potential we have is intelligence and as we walk this path we come to understand the real meaning and use of intelligence.

One of her specialities is the psychology of maintaing a home yoga practice – she’s even written a book on it, Forty Days of Yoga. It’s something she knows about intimately, from the inside out.
