MAAT Day 8 of #abofakemeticlife2014 @BlueTreasurePhotography #kemeticyoga challenge Ma’at is the Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) concept of #truth, #balance, #order, #law, #morality, and #justice. Yoga principles goes hand in hand with Ma’at because they both #focus on Balance, Self Discipline, and being Righteous. Ma’at is also the #goddess of Justice and Truth as her teachings helps the consciencness of each individuals. The word Yoga, comes from the Sanskrit word yuj which means to yoke, to concentrate or bind and is often interpreted as “Union” or a method of #discipline. This practice unites the #body, #mind, and #spirit. It joins individuality with the Divine Intelligence that orchestrates the #universe. So, if you are a seekers of greater #wellbeing, #vitality, and #wisdom, #yoga offers a map that ultimately leads you back to Spirit. Whether you are new to yoga or been practicing for some time, it will definitely shift your conscious awareness. The balance created in Yoga helps your body to develop #strength, #flexibility, emotional and spiritual balance. This is done through the performance of poses or asanas, each of which has specific physical and emotinal benefits. In addition to practicing the poses, yoga helps you to #focus on breathing techniques as well. The #breath is the #life force of your body. Meditation is also an integral part of yoga which takes you into a stillness or #meditation into your every breath and movement. Yoga, when aligned with breath awareness and #inspirational #affirmation, you will be able to move past your physical body, beyond the subtle body (Mind, Intellect, Ego) and ultimately to that universal state of oneness with yourself. Ma’at and Yoga helps us to #transform our lives and others to become healthier, happier and more balanced in all areas of life.

Follow, follow the sun and which way the wind blows when this day is done. Breathe, breathe in the air. Set your intentions. Dream with care. Tomorrow is a new day for everyone, Brand new moon, brand new sun. So follow, follow the sun, the direction of the bird, the direction of love. Breathe, breathe in the air, cherish this moment, cherish this breath. Tomorrow is a new day for everyone, brand new moon, brand new sun. When you feel life coming down on you, like a heavy weight. When you feel this crazy society, adding to the strain. Take a stroll to the nearest waters edge remember your place. Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came. So which way is the wind blowin’, and what does your heart say? A favorite picture and a favorite song. Happy Thursday dear friends!
