Tomorrow is wood.
Today is fire.
Here’s a gold nugget as you look to making 2015 a special year.
‘Tending the Fire’ is an interesting analogy for working on our ‘life’ in 2015.
THE FOUR FIRES
(Adapted from Ayurveda, with attribution and thanks to Shiva Rea in MANTRA: YOGA & HEALTH magazine.)
DIM FIRE (MANDA AGNI) can manifest as a lack of hunger for life, disconnection, low energy, and lethargy and is balanced by life practices which revitalize, rekindle, and nourish without depleting vital energy.
EXCESSIVE FIRE (TIKSHNA AGNI) manifests as insatiable hunger and a reactive nervous system – rarely satisfied, sharp, intense, ego-driven, and out of balance. Excessive fire is balanced by slowing down, relaxing, and bringing more meditative life activities and yoga practices into one’s life
WAVERING FIRE (VISHAMA AGNI) affects our ability to experience life without stress as the wavering fire expends energy through an irregular flow, erratic energy, and inability to sustain transformation. Balance the fire through grounding, few activities, and greater quality of presence.
BALANCED FIRE (SAMA AGNI) brings you into your authentic energy flow, vitality, inspiration, clarity, longevity, and passion – sustaining evolution in all forms.
A Thought for 2015: SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE … WITH FIRE.
