Adyar Online Bookstore

Adyar.com.au - mind, body, spirit bookshop specialising in metaphysical and alternative books
When I lived in Sydney, I had a favourite book store in the CBD called Adyar. It was a mind, body, spirit bookshop specialising in metaphysical and alternative books. It had a excellent range of second hand books which I enjoyed browsing. Sadly, it closed a couple of years ago.

We were very happy to find out that it recently re-opened as an online bookstore. It has a good range of yoga material. To check out its wide range of books, CDs and DVDs, go to www.adyar.com.au.

Is yoga one of the secrets to longevity?

Is yoga one of the secrets to longevity - Liveyogalife.comAn article in The Art of Healing magazine explained the benefits of yoga from a very interesting perspective that we had not seen before.

It starts by accepting the scientific perspective that our heart has a set number of beats before it will just stop working. If that is the case, slowing down our breathing oxygenates our blood, meaning that the heart has less work to do.

It goes on to suggest that the yogis understood this principle and so developed more effective ways of breathing. They reduced the amount of toxins that were allowed to enter the bloodstream and practised a host of techniques, from meditation to yoga postures, practices that harmonised the peripheral nervous system and slowed the heart rate.

The article goes onto discuss the three phases of purification of the blood, rebalancing of the nervous system, and rejuvenation’ of the endocrine system.

The exercises in the class will systematically stimulate the positive pranic force and the kundalini energy itself.

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz – Introductory Video

Recently I came across an introductory video for a book I first read in 2005 called “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. It was the first book which opened by eyes to how much better I can live my life if I only took some time to get in touch with my inner world and let it guide my actions.

This is the opposite to the method I had been using up to this point which involved trying to find meaning in my life from the outer world. As you can probably tell, trying to find meaning from the chaotic going-ons in the outer world is fraught with problems and is not a good reference point for inner happiness.

In the book, Don Miguel Ruiz reveals that the source of our needless suffering, and which robs us of joy, is our acceptance of self-limiting beliefs. The book outlines and explains how four very simple agreements can signficantly reduce our suffering and bring great joy into our life. These “Four Agreements” are: “Be impeccable with your word”, “Don’t take anything personally”, “Don’t make assumptions” and “Always do your best”.

I highly recommend the book to anyone seeking a better way to live. As a starter check out the introductory video which outlines what the book is about.
