Welcome to We are One - Yoga and Healing. The thought I had when I came up with this name for my Yoga Center / Association came from the question "What brings us together as humanity?" What is it that unites us, and what is it that gives us the feeling of Oneness as a human being? I came with all sorts of names, and slogans, but nothing that brought me to the essence of what I could imagine that would apply everywhere and that would be the same for every person and being. And then I got the message: "what really brings us together is the Realization that we are all One, that we all come from the same Spark on this Earth and that we are indeed all the same". That is what "We are One" stands for. That Awareness. How can we realize that together? Small things in everyday life: helping someone who needs it, a smile, paying attention to your neighbor's child, calling your mother and checking how she is doing, keeping the door open for someone, taking good care of yourself and then you can also take care of others, find peace in the middle of the crowd, cry but also realize that you are grateful, make peace with the fear in your body, or the pain in your heart, forgive someone, Love and have compassion for the animals on the earth, and so on. I think you understand what I mean.
As my teacher Yogi Bhajan said, "If you can not see God in All, you can not see God at all". And so, We are One is a state of consciousness. And that is something that you can take anywhere and apply everywhere and practice anywhere. It is a Simple Concept, but we all know that it is not so easy to remember that every day! That ego anyway! :)
I hope one day to set up an Association or Center where we can feel all this as soon as you open the door. A place where everyone feels good, safe and respected. A place where we take care of ourselves and therefore at the same time for each other. And we'll just start with that when we meet on the mat in the Yoga Class :)
In Oneness, I see you. Siridyal Kaur, Founder We are One - yoga and healing.
