Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitQ. In corporate jobs, the deadlines never end. Sometimes you cannot avoid stress. How to deal with it? Dr. J: Don't extend yourself into corporate business. If you get into corporate business - more stress. If you remain at a lower level - less stress. Smt. H: Dr. Jayadeva's philosophy is very clear - more and more promotion, more and more stress, so don't accept promotion. It would help to learn the art of management. Any work can be done with or without stress. So we have to learn how to enjoy the work and not get tense. Tension comes when we are result oriented. There may be a fixed target, but what can you do? You can only plan and work every minute. Tension will not help meet the target. If the target is not met, reorganize and try again. Plan and systematize your work. The mind should be work oriented, not result oriented. And if you could concentrate more on the work, everything will fall into place.Q. Can you share some suggestions when there is emotional stress when there is disagreement between two or more people?

Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the Audio:Check this out on Chirbit“There is tension in speaking and there is tension is in your coming here and listening. Tension is there all the time. Finally, it is your attitude that matters. If you take life as it comes – no tension; and if you take every event in life as a great event, challenge, tension is there. We have to learn how to accept.

Shut up in thoughts, shut up in expressions, feelings; blanking the mind out, which we are unable to do. Even if physically we don’t speak, the mind is working. What is expected is a state of consciousness which is absolutely quiet.

Pratyahara is to go inwards. This is linked to our state of mind... it's a means to lean towards our consciousness, to exit the external world / stimuli by shutting down our sensory organs namely our eyes, ears, our sense of touch, taste and smell.
Our senses link our inner self with the external world. And they are functioning continuously without a break. We are always alert and aware of whats going on outside and interested to try everything, touch everything, desire to taste / to see everything that exists outside, the question to understand is, how much?

Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitQ. How to be unaffected by the senses in this householder state? Dr. J: One easy way would be to buy ear plugs. It would save you from unnecessary talks. Smt. H: Being a householder does not mean we let go of all discipline. We must do things only when they are necessary. I always say in the pregnancy camp, when parents have a small child, the child will wake up many times at night. Now the child will need its mother as the mother will be feeding it. So the father need not wake up every time. If both wake up, both their sleep will be disturbed and they will start fighting. So the father needs to use ear plugs and sleep. Now householders should have clarity on how much each should be involved.Q. My husband enjoys food, especially one item. He wants to eat that all the time. I am saturated with eating this with him for so many years. Please advise on how to deal with this.

8th September 2013 - Sunday - Dealing with depression “We all suffer from depression. Otherwise we wouldn't get disturbed. We come to know, listen, but we don’t understand. You see, this ability to understand is a central factor. We give in to negative thoughts. Things are bad, going to the worst and all that kind. So we are a bundle of confusion, doubts, fear; there is no positivity. Unfortunately these have increased and today most of us have this kind of feeling where we take it that the world is going to the dogs, things are not going to get better, we have to just suffer and all that. Yoga begins with positive thinking. If you sit for a few minutes, eyes closed, watching your breathing; a good feeling does come and you get peace, mind is very clear, develop faith. If one can do it regularly, some amount of strength also comes. Those who have problems like depression, fear, they have to begin somewhere. Just thinking and feeling sad is not the answer. So many who have taken to yoga, they do some yoga practices, have good company, talk something better and changes happen. So depression has a good answer – do things, be optimistic.”9th September 2013 - Monday - Satya
