Aries

Tadāsmi – What am I? 

«(So you should meditate:) when my desires do not produce knowledge, then who am I? In fact, being absorbed in the essence I am, and identifying myself with that, then I become that »(Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra, 97, Dhāranā on “Who am I?”).

The present tests now perhaps strike much deeper than you think, Aries. If you live them only as annoyances that undermine your patience, you should actually think that they are the test for defining yourself. Who you are, what or who you have become, what to you have dedicated yourself in recent years are, how much you have learned from mistakes, how much you have managed to progress…  these are the questions that are asked of you in this period. If you think about this, you will also manage to contain the instinct to fight with anyone who opposes you.

IN PRACTICE

Tada-āsana, mountain-pose

Now you are this. Do you feel stable? Do you feel confident about yourself? What is still pressing inside you. Stay in this position every day for at least two minutes.

Awareness exercise

Sit in a meditative position. Put a flower in front of you. True, if possible, otherwise the image of a flower. Take some time to relax all your muscles. Then contemplate the color and shape of the flower. Observe its beauty. Think of the process by which it is born, how it is formed, how it blooms. Reflect that its shape is necessary for its function. // From 5 to 15 min.
