Love is a part of me in such deep level, that when I try to close my heart chakra, just to balance my emotions and get grasp of my chatter box mind, I get physically drained and sick...
It is like fading, feeling this deep weakness that keeps me tired and lacking motivation. It happens because I have to use all energy available in my being to contain this huge uncontrollable energy that flows straight from my heart. If I keep with the mindset of controlling this energy, closing it, I just don't have energy for anything else, I fade. If I learned something about this inside watcher that I hope is me, is that the love energy that is available within me is like a supernova. To stop a supernova it requires a supernova of contrary polarity. To generate two powerful forces with the energy available to me, at this moment of my life, is very hard on my body. It takes energy from everything else and drains all my other chakras too.

Simply stop on your way home at a public botanic garden or arboretum, sit on a bench and just “be.”
Adi-yoga is also a school for the preservation and dissemination of teachings in permaculture and sustainable living. The teachings of yoga are directly related to the proper care and cultivation of the earth and our natural resources. The development of the body and mind (the real practice of adi-yoga) leads to a desire for a lifestyle that is in harmony with nature. Thus, Adi-yoga, located in the beautiful mountains of Northeastern Thailand, is a living example of a fully sustainable, organic, natural community designed via the principles of permaculture. In the endeavor of teaching permaculture, Adi-yoga works in conjunction with Earthsafe, a Thai initiative that is dedicated to the teaching, preservation and practices of permaculture, sustainability and natural farming...
