Jesus began his example of how to pray, saying,
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom comes. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
God’s will be known as divine will. When we are attracted by Maya, one is taken far away from this divine will. One becomes weak and consumed with fear and anxiety. As long one has personal desires, spiritual life is a dream. One can practice Yoga, but what is guiding one. There are problems in life, it is our perception and how we confront them. If one lives in the desert, one only sees sand and one becomes discontented. One has to change one’s perspective.
This change starts with becoming aware of one’s breath. When one is counting one’s breath backwards, one’s thoughts are ignored. Then one visualizes the breath going in and out of the left nostril. One is clearing the Ida nadi. One’s thoughts are not being addressed. The mind is neither introverted or extroverted. After this one concentrates on the right nostril, one is clearing the Pingala nadi by visualizing the breath going in and out of the right nostril. One’s vitality is not being misused. Then one concentrates on both nostrils and visualizes the breath flowing in and out through both nostrils, unbiased. This gives one clarity and freedom from Maya.
One is receptive to the Divine will and one finds that one accepts life as it is.
