Acintya – Unconceivable

«(This) should not at all be pondered over (as beyond one’s self), nor should it be pondered over (as one’s self); nor pondered over (as qualified); but should be pondered over (as itself); when one views it free from all partiality, then indeed will one become the Brahman» (Amritabindu-upanishad, 6).

Brahman is something that goes beyond the categories of thought. It is not something that can be conceived, nor something on which one can truly reflect or make calculations. In short, thought cannot grasp everything.

Wanting to get off the heights of the infinite Universe, thought cannot grasp everything even in everyday life. Not everything can be calculated or expected. So you might find yourself, Leo, having to deal with something unexpected that puts you to the test. It can be in any field: health, relationships, work. Maybe it’s just small things. In this case it could be a series of small annoyances that make life hectic and make you want to drop everything. Wait a minute before taking any decision. At the end of the month you should feel more in harmony and can be more able to assess the situation.

Keep your attention high with these exercises:

Garuda-āsana, eagle pose. Focus on what you want, set your goals and keep your balance. // 1 min per side.

Ājnā kriyā, cleansing of the third eye. In any position, at any time, keep your mind relaxed and clear. Be aware of your mental state. See if you prefer to turn your thumb clockwise or counterclockwise. Repeat it several times a day. // 1 min.

Concentration. Relax in a meditative position. Take some time to relax all the muscles. Observe your breath, observe the state of your mind. Try to be aware of all the sensations of your body, especially those related to touch: the pressure of your legs and buttocks on the ground; the touching of your clothes on your shoulders and on your abdomen, the warmth of your hands touching each other and the legs; the coolness of bare skin touched by the air; etc. Go on seeking for tactile sensations. // From 5 to 15 min.

TOTAL TIME: from 8 to 20 minutes.
