In this tutorial we have jumped ahead to sutra 1:39 so that we can setup the platform to measure and compare the quality of our progress as soon as we start so that by the time we reach sutra 1:39 we can see how much we have developed. Why Sutra 1:39?

When you start practicing Yoga, your whole environment starts to respond to your efforts in the exact degree to which you are sincere, loving, and committed. Sutra 1:39-40 speak of this. By setting up our platform now, we can start measuring the quality of our exchange with the Universe from the get go.

Sutra 1:39

This sutra simply says that by meditating or concentrating on that which is deeply desired, one achieves it. Please keep in mind that this is being said in the context of Yoga.

The Law of Attraction

Religions and cultures around the world, past and present, all teach that what the mind and heart truly desires, it will manifest. What is the creative spirit of life that moves through you telling you? What are you meant to do here? Far more people have a gift that they care admit to for reason of being ridiculed, shamed, or ostracized. If not that, then the fear of loss in remuneration or the anguish of falling out of favor amongst friends and foe, colleagues and family.

Yoga calls us to manifest that which is life-giving for all sentient beings. Are you creating, designing, awakening, igniting, inspiring, supporting? Can you help, befriend, teach, empower, heal, love, care, be kind and compassionate? Are you working to build frameworks and foundations that foster peace, acceptance, and benevolence?

How Does Law of Attraction Work?

Quantum experiments demonstrate that electrons existed simultaneously in an infinite array of possibilities in an invisible field of energy. They exist, but do not manifest in reality until the observer puts their attention on any location of any one electron. This phenomenon is called the “collapse of the wave function”. The moment the observer looks for an electron, there is a specific point in time and space when all probabilities of the electron collapse into a physical event. This tells us that whatever we observe and measure, we manifest. But our success depends on our intensity of concentration, and intention.

The Effects of Thoughts and Feelings on our Environment

We interact with the quantum field through our thoughts and feelings. Cellular biologist Glen Rein, Ph.D. conducted a series of experiments at HeartMath Research Center to test healer's’ ability to affect biological systems. His experiments and those of others at HeartMath concluded that just a thought and a feeling is not enough to bring about a change in outer reality. To bring about a change, thought and feeling must be accompanied by intention. And to bring about a positive change in health, wealth, and happiness; thought, feeling and intention has to be kind and compassionate in nature. They, and others doing research into the physiology of emotions and heart-brain interactions have documented a specific link between our emotional states and our heart rhythms. Without love, there is no coherence.

The Importance of Kindness and Compassion

In our daily interactions with life, if our thoughts, feelings, and intentions are marked with anger and fear, our heart rhythms become erratic and disorganized. As a result we manifest in our lives dissatisfaction and suffering, even though our desire is for the opposite. If you desire wealth, but have doubts that you will never be able to attain financial success, then no matter how much desire you project, which you will do through worry and rumination; manifestation of destitution shall be your fate. If you wish to write books, work to empower women, work to foster peace, acceptance, and benevolence, but carry resentment in your heart, and envy in your soul; then what will show up through your efforts are ill-will, aggression, and disdain.

When you are seeding an intention, monitor and record the thoughts and feelings that pass through you and then put a conscious effort towards transcending the negative and cultivating those that foster altruism, nonviolence, fortitude, fearlessness, gratitude, and devotion. If you keep trying using the principles of Yoga, you will succeed.
