parvatayoga:

What does “OM" mean? ॐ
Many of us are familiar with the classic yogi chant “Om” usually spoken or sung at the beginning or ending of each class. But why is it an essential part of yoga practice?
Om is the most sacred mantra in hinduism. This mantra “sustains everything.” Om is the essence of all universe. When we chant “om” we make the sound “aaaauuummm” The “A” coming from the back of our throat, the “U” from our mouths, and the “M” from humming our lips together. These three parts make the sound of Om. The symbol of Om also contains three parts. ॐ
The “A” in the sound of aum and the longest line in the “OM” symbol (to the right of what looks like a 3), symbolizes the entire state of human consciousness. This is the entire physical life the body experiences… basically meaning time you are awake and aware of your experiences. 
The “U” in the sound of aum, and the shorter line in what looks like a 3 in the OM symbol, symbolizes the time when we are in between sleep and wake. This is also known as the “dream” state. A time when we experience things other than the physical world. 
The “M” in the Aum sound, and lastly the longer line in the symbol (looking like a 3) represent the time our bodies are in deep sleep. “The unmanifest condition.” When our bodies are in unconsciousness. 
These three sounds, three symbols; wake, sleep, and dream, symbolize the entire essence of life. 
What exists now, what existed before, and what exists later is Om.
Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?

Wait a second can we just acknowledge how eye-opening this is

Pure love is the best medicine for the modern world. This is what is lacking in all societies. The root cause of all problems, from personal problems to global problems, is the absence of love. Love is the binding factor, the unifying factor. Love creates the feeling of oneness among people. It unifies a nation and its people. Love creates a sense of unity while hatred causes division. Egotism and hatred cut people’s minds into pieces. There is no problem which love cannot solve. Amma (via belovedlotus)
