Hi All:

For some time, there has been the thought to add a forum for discussing spirituality, career and money. This comes in part from the many questions on this subject that have come here over the years, and a realization that AYP has more to contribute beyond the simple (and true) maxim, "Meditate daily and all will come."

There has also been the thought to add a few new titles to the AYP Enlightenment Series, with "Yoga and Money" being one of them, for possible publication in 2008. We'll see.

The same posting guidelines will apply here as for any other AYP forum. No commercial solicitations are permitted. So this is not a place to discuss get rich quick schemes, multi-level marketing, stock recommendations, or things of that nature.

This forum is about fulfilling our Dharma (our most spiritually evolutionary activity in life) while fulfilling our financial responsibilities. Finding harmony between our spiritual practices and what we do for a living is an important part of the path. Indeed, both are essential ingredients that cannot be separated.

The apparent incompatibility we may find between our spiritual aspirations, our career, and money can be resolved over time as we advance in our yoga practices.

As inner silence gradually expands within us, it illuminates all of our outer activity. Our career may or may not change. But our relationship with our work certainly will with an opening heart and ever-increasing peace, creativity and joy, as our attention naturally shifts from identification with external objects (including thoughts, feelings and the objects of the world) to become absorbed in stillness and the flow of outpouring divine love.

Business and money then become a flow of consciousness along with everything else, and regulated in accordance with the principles of divine energy flow. The ancient time-tested methods of good money management embody these principles, just as the methods of yoga embody the principles of human spiritual transformation inherent in everyone. We are the doorway to the infinite, limited only by the temporal obstructions lodged within us. The methods of yoga are for dissolving these obstructions in our neurobiology.

As we continue with our practices and are increasingly able to hear the call of our dharma within and around us, we can clearly see beyond the old limitations to a much fuller expression in all aspects of our life.

Wishing you all the best on your chosen path. Practice wisely, and enjoy!

The guru is in you.
