    Yes. As far as Hindu practice is concerned, external and internal yoga go together.

    As for yogâsana, it was not as widely used as people think. Yogâsana was a practice of Râja yogis and Hatha yogis. But now, thanks to its commercialization, it is becoming more and more common.

    Z - it is very possible that both terms are different forms of the universal spirit .... the hawaiian culture has a strong tradition connected with the movement of energy through space and time and with many cultures there can be many words to describe very subtle aspects of the same thing .... like many different words for "snow" if you live in that environment, or "ocean" etc.... we become more finite in our descriptions when we use these resources .... so it is with energy .... even the word Hawaii has many meanings .... "ha" can mean breath or the number four, "wa" can be related to a canoe or a space of time between two events, etc.... so deeply hidden in the word Hawaii there are several meanings, one of which is four great periods of time in the creation of the world .... and our word "aloha" which is pretty much universally known is actually related to the exchange of breath, you will notice the sound "ha" at the end which again is breath or the number four .... and actually comes closer to the interpretation of an exchange of breath face-to-face .... "alo" can mean (among many meanings) the front,the face or the presence of one .... it almost sounds biblical when you break it down such as the meeting of god face to face .... but this word did not come with the missionaries .... we had it long before .... and all its inner meanings which are generally not revealed .... aloha nui, poh

    Pohaika, hi



    Thank you for your fascinating insights! I must admit I never realised there was so much to your culture. Aloha is very affectionate in sound and meaning, I had a wonderful metaphoric visualisation of it as I read, :) I like the way meanings are brought together in a kind of poetic manner!



    How do you see the thought waves of the future? I often equate air, breath & thought as the one – then the spirit is a vast weather landscape, what goes on in our minds is a vortex in that system – in weather, everything affects everything else!



    Respect



    Z

    Z - very interesting, I never really looked at air, breath and thought in that manner but it would make a lot of sense .... each vowel sound calls forth an element in the hawaiian language, and the last sound "u" (pronounced as in spanish 'ooh') is the human element that can call forth all the other elements .... so in effect the vortex in our minds could easily effect the outer vortex in the material world .... I met an old man on a small island in the south pacific who was one of the last of his clan that could control the weather .... he could stand on the beach when a storm approached his island (this was part of the small islands of the Marshall Island chain) and force the storm to change courses .... he possessed many other abilities and there were no young people wanting to learn the old ways, so I never heard if he passed any of his knowledge on .... his descendants have the ability, but may never learn how to use it .... he passed something on to me, but it will be held for my grandson when he is a little older ....

    back to the vortex, in the Lakota tradition, Native American culture, the building of a tipi is actually the re-creation of the world (each part of the process is a ritual that re-enacts the creation) ... for example the first 3 poles come together in a triangle and recreate a star, this is the centering, so once the star is realized and we are centered, then orientation can occur because a triumph over chaos can occur .. then 7 more are added which create west, north, east, south, above, below and center, etc. Ultimately you have 12 poles which symbolize the life cycle and even more. The Sun Dance is the voluntary sacrifice in the renewal of life on earth and in the tribe and once dances around the holy tree. The Sun Dancer create a vortex of power with its apex pointed up (just like the tipi) .... so what you create in the building of the tipi and the sun dance is a vortex with the heavens or the upper world creating the upper part of the vortex which is created also in the mind ....

    I believe deeply that we can change our world by changing our mind .... and we have the ability to bring our minds under control through the control of our breath ..... so all that you say makes sense to me .... he hawai'i au, pohaikawahine

    I read somewhere of ‘hu’ being similar, as is the druidic notion of Awen, = the original sound of the sound tree [the seed and the heart of the tree].



    May I ask: do you have a complete alphabet or a link to one?



    r




    I know many people who can control the weather [or flow with its directions], not quite to that degree though! Me for instance :p :cool: e.g. I made [asked the spirits of that sky] a rainy day sunny for my sisters wedding. I think anyone who knows spirit will learn these things. Nice story!



    The pre druidic peoples of Britain also done circle dancing! I wonder if it too was to create a vortex? They also drew spirals and circles on stones in temples – perhaps that too is something similar.



    You are teaching me much about my ancient culture ;)





    I completely agree! After all, the mind is everywhere and a part of everything, thus if a given thing is susceptible to change by mind influence, then it should be possible.

    It is surprising just how much is susceptible.



    Thanx

    aloha e Z - you asked if I had a complete alphabet or a link to one .... I am assuming you are talking about the hawaiian alphabet? You will probably not be able to find it on a link or in a book .... but I'll be happy to share what I was taught because the kapu has been released ....

    there are not too many letters in the hawaiian alphabet, so this won't take long ....

    vowels A indicates spiritual light or elemental fire - the sun
    E indicates spiritual movement or elemental rhythm - the wind
    I indicates spiritual emotions or elemental waters - salt and fresh
    waters
    O indicates spiritual foundation or elemental substanced - the earth
    U indicates spiritual humanity to give positive or negative meaning
    to the creative elements

    CONSONANT SOUNDS indicate how the elements are to be used

    K indicates a positive masculine application to the vowel.
    KU = a masculine, forceful, forthright expression of
    humanity as an example
    H indicates a negative, feminine, introspective or emotional
    expression of a vowel. HU = an internal expression of U.
    HUPO = means ignorance because it indicates that darkness
    (PO) is an integral part of the U being discussed - and the
    darkness is inward - of the mind. PO is the darkness of
    year (winter) when all goes beneath the ground to be reborn
    in AO (the light or spring). PO is also an expression of the
    void or chaos.
    L indicates and elemental inattention or a negative effect of
    the elements on man - not necessarily bad - for man can
    apply his mind to do something about it. L applies to I (the
    elemental waters) = LI which indicates that the emotions or
    the elements will make the body (u) shiver.
    M indicates a gathering within, conservation, or a containing
    of the essence of the vowels it became attached to. The
    word MALAMA means to preserve, to keep and to care for
    and the word has a strong spiritual feeling since all the
    vowels are the A indicating spiritual light of intelligence.
    N indicates the opposite of M. It indicates an outward force or
    projection of its energy.
    P indicates touching upon - both physical and spiritual. The PA-
    LAMA (fence of the LAMA wood) touches upon the space of the area it
    encloses. the PA-hu (DRUM) is an instrument created by man to touch and express or create sound (an emotional expression)
    W indicates the timeless - the unknown and unknowable except spiritually or through faith. It indicates the esoteric, therefore, and can indicate time/space rather than the material.

    This is how I learned it from a woman called Pilahi Paki, a great teacher and spiritual wahine .... she has passed over now but continues to guide many through her words and teachings .... I hope this is helpful to you, there is so much more, but that is not possible to write it all in such a small space .... I am glad that you have learned something of my culture and even something new of yours .... it is always a pleasure to share .... he hawai'i au, pohaikawahine
