How does it all work?
Most of the time we're unconsciously reacting - stuck in our habits, patterns, impressions and mental/emotional addictions.
In yoga science, when they become strong enough to alter our thinking process, it is called SAMSKARA.
The word samskara comes from the Sanskrit sam (complete or joined together) and kara (action, cause, or doing).
Samskaras are in the lower mind and are the root to our impulses. Repeating samskaras reinforces them, making the habit stronger, and creating grooves in the mind that are difficult to resist.
These powerful impressions in the mind impact on our personality, and due to these samskaras we perceive the world in our habitual ways. We can't see out of the groove...
Taking a pause to stop and notice our body and mind gives us the space to transform negative habits into positive habits. Through Modern Meditation we can create a pause. A pause to practice making CONSCIOUS ACTION.
Through Modern Meditation we can interrupt our automatic habits.
