390 Relaxation Energy. Lessons from the Yoga Plant

screen-shot-2016-12-03-at-15-11-21

Whilst it wears spikes on the outside, relaxation on the Inside is also the Aloe Vera. With self corrective methods for perfect spinal alignment and full flexibility, the “Yoga Plant” has the ability to grow naturally into poses without strain.

As it ages, Aloe Vera can grow very large. This remarkable specimen seen yesterday in Earls Court, London, had leaves at least 40 cms width at its base.  And exactly the same as humans, it needs to manage its weight. But unlike many of us,  it will tackle any unwanted ounces remarkably simply, opting for the easiest and certainly the most ideal natural response.The rate at which an aloe grows is exponential to the suppleness and agility required to support it. Consequently,  Aloe Vera can evenly distribute its weight healthily, without force, without pain.  And only without pain, one can relax.

Through living a life of “taking it easy”, it is worth noting how this Aloe Vera will ensure a constant activity, however in the UK Winter, it has to take its mastery s-l-o-w-l-y.  To accomplish its full potential for inner growth and a strong, firm, but agile physique, yoga is the all embracing method for the Aloe Vera.

Along with perfect focus and upright, balanced stature,  gentle back bends, spinal twists, arm wraps, the Downward Dog and even the perfect ‘Bridge’ are all possible, simply because Aloe Vera grows into its postures without strain.  For this plant, relaxation is not just a way of Life, it is survival. It happens not through a random decision to take a break, but via a mechanical system which has evolved by design with mathematical precision over millions of years. It has the perfect system for optimum well being.  With engineered accuracy, responsive to change, how does it work?

Water comprises much of its weight, and as a fluid, water is very movable. In the Aloe Vera, water imbued with nourishing chemicals, coagulates into a thick concentrate. It travels throughout its structure for excellent “spinal tap”. This life-giving substance is the same well known healing gel which we now use to soothe burns, relieve from heat and moisturise for all weathers.

But imagine, how very nifty would it be to create your own healing liquid? Not just for after exercise, but for surviving sub zero temperatures and excessive heat.

Well, well, well…….Hello Vera! Your techniques for refreshment are completely remarkable. What a lesson in how to use relaxation energy as the secret of growth, physical fitness and self-preservation. Your DNA is amazing.

Incase any potential Aloe “Freds” were wondering, gender assignment is already considered in the Aloe Vera name, it simply doesn’t matter who or what you are, Nature is inclusive, so you can breathe. Such relaxation energy techniques are available for all to be inspired by.

Namaste

387 Advent Eve . Crystal Night

img_20161128_164044997The official eve of Winter.  In the world of forest and field, stems of all ages and sizes are naked. The once powerfully dressed giants of swathing green and the gentile,delicate ferns beneath them, now show how all is created equal when stripped bare.

This means that Autumn is now resolved. Its skills in creating the unity of leaves over the past few months, has been a triumph. All have their own perfect timing to gradually stray upon the Earth and to dissolve within its surface. No revolution will ever change this process.

Tonight, the ground is a carpet of crystal, as if the stars have fallen from the now undisturbed sky space. Is it too simple to think that the impossibly distant and giant sun balls change into freezing crystal specks when we are not looking?

Light is certainly a shy and contrary beauty with both hot and cold extremes. As a main key holder in creating life, light has immortality. Infinity is not for us to question or keep it, but respect its ceremony and purpose. If its gods decide to travel from sky to earth, so be it.

From the bringer of life, warmth and illumination,  we don’t often think about or expect Light’s final touch as frozen adoration. Crystals can be the mark of a true romantic, however cold, but such is the necessary gifting of opposites. The nature of the Universe is contrary.

But now, the air is clear.  About the future, the Universe is now below our feet. Winter is here. In the UK, tonight, the stars are on the ground. The real Winter Wonderland.

385 Matinee Mysteries “Was it Obi -Wan Kenobi in the Yucca?”

All seemed fine amongst the dagger-like grass and then there was agitation.  The hard blades began to slowly move towards a giant clasp. And then, on the brink of dusk and the curb of the mighty blade, Time and Purpose was in alignment, with no warning an unknown force came into view and made itself felt. Its power was unearthly, but captivatingly beautiful.

It was all over in less than a century or was that an Old Planet second? Even Power gets burned when Courage fights for values and truth. There was casualty, but here was the proof that in Winter all is not at all lost, it is saved to be renewed. Wisdom rules it must simply retreat to fight another day. In your very neighbourhood, just as here, these brave swords now hang for all passers by to remember and be encouraged, Truth is never a battle fought in vain.
