Wishing all my friends, patients, and colleagues a Peaceful New Year!

Symptoms of Inner Peace

From Structural Yoga Therapy: Adapting to the individual by Mukunda; Stiles p. 315

Watch for the signs of peace, as they are the developing of stability. As you develop in the fullness of life, there are signals that events are taking place that may be beyond your control. These symptoms are a wonderful ease (not dis-ease) that is contagious.

You are cautioned to share them with everyone you meet.

  1. 1.a tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than from fear;

  2. 2.an unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment;

  3. 3.loss of interest in judging others;

  4. 4.loss of interest in judging yourself;

  5. 5.loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others;

  6. 6.loss of interest in conflict;

  7. 7.loss of ability to worry (a very serious symptom);

  8. 8.frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation;

  9. 9.feeling connected with others and with nature;

  10. 10.frequent attacks of smiling for no apparent reason at all;

  11. 11.increased tendency to let things happen, rather than make them happen;

  12. 12.increased susceptibility to giving and receiving love.

If you have more than three of the above symptoms, please be advised that your condition may be too advanced to return to your former self. If you become exposed to someone exhibiting these symptoms, remain exposed at your own risk.

As yogi Mukunda always says, “Stay well and happy”
