Yoga in Practice - The Organized State of Mind

Paul M. Jerard Jr.
Dec 28, 2007
There are many methods for organizing thoughts, but the oldest of them is the science of life, which we call Yoga. The mind could be easily compared to any other structure or machine. For example: Have you ever tried to work in a messy office or operate a machine which is not maintained? The clutter within, and around it, creates a lack of productivity.

Our state of mind is affected by clutter from within, and, of course, by unorganized surroundings. If you stop to clean, production comes to a halt, but taking the time to clean up an office will result in more productivity. After that, you will need to develop a maintenance system to prevent excessive clutter from getting out of hand, repeatedly.

The mind operates within parallel circumstances, when compared to an office. This is why we should also take the time to practice Yoga and meditate daily. It is true that we will not be producing, while we are practicing Yoga, or meditation, but we are very productive after our session.

Spare time seems like a distant memory to many of us, since the world became computerized. We clearly understand the dog who tries to catch its tail. No matter how hard the dog tries to spin in a circle, the tail is always out of reach.

Yet, time has not really changed at all. Time still runs at the same pace. Taking the time out of your day, for a Yoga session, allows you to organize your mind. You come back to your daily tasks refreshed, renewed, and happy. How can a little Yoga or meditation session have this much impact?

The truth is - any perceived objective must be accomplished in steps. To build a house, you need equipment and it must arrive in the proper sequence. If the roofing shingles arrive first, you cannot build a foundation with them.

This is a major key in life: Do not worry about the whole project, but look only for the solution to solve the next step. In the case of organizing the mind, the first step is to contemplate each solution - one at a time. If you have time, after a Yoga class, make a habit of writing ideas on paper, or enter them on your PC.

The act of writing about a perceived solution will more likely result in taking positive action. Rather than, finding a solution, and then forgetting it. The world's greatest inventions required a person to think, write it down, refine the concept, and take positive action toward the objective.

When the mind is in a state of clutter, all of the great ideas, within, are usually forgotten. The solution is to make a daily Yoga appointment with yourself. If you want to start soon, but cannot attend a regular class, set up a five to twenty minute session, to begin with. Just a short Yoga session, per day, will result in more organized thinking.
