The Study of Poetry by Matthew Arnold | Poetry Foundation
Hold back your mind from pride, for pride comes only from ignorance. The man who does not know thinks that he is great, that he has done this or that great thing; the wise man knows that only God is great, that all good work is done by God alone.

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians James You will always harvest what you plant.

To learn, go in the uncomfortable zone. To go in this zone, you must be willing to fail. To fail and try again, you must be indifferent to failing.

With too much pride a man cannot learn a thing.
In and of itself, learning teaches you how foolish you are.

Learning is the very essence of humility, learning from everything and from everybody. There is no hierarchy in learning. It is an attitude of great hubris to be unwilling to learn. It shows that you think you already know what you need to know. Very few scientists at Yogananda's time would have been comfortable with his claims. Yet today revolutionary new findings in neuroscience are showing that meditation does in fact bring favorable changes in the neural pathways of the brain. Scientific laboratories are now stumbling into truths experienced by yogis across the ages in, as Yogananda would say, the inner laboratories of their personal experience.
And what would be the markers that people could look for to assess their inner progress? Lower stress? Greater peace? He had begun his own quest for self-realization very early in life, a story vibrantly captured in the critically acclaimed documentary Awake: The Life of Yogananda. His youthful search culminated in his master Sri Yukteswar giving him the monastic name "Yogananda," which means "bliss through yoga. To some, the yogic pursuit of inner perfection may appear a little selfish.
Shouldn't we be solving the world's most vexing problems, rather than withdrawing into blissful inner communion? In fact, one time, when Yogananda sat still, absorbed in a particularly blissful state of consciousness, his spiritual master admonished him: "You must not get overdrunk with ecstasy.
FOUNDATION FOR GREATNESS: Understanding the benefits of laying a solid foundation.
Much work yet remains for you in the world. The yoga he taught emphasizes balancing service with meditation, and highlights the expansion of consciousness that comes when we are able to go beyond our human self and open ourselves up, through inner realization, to a deeper connection with every living being--in fact, with every atom in the universe. Yogananda's teaching of universal consciousness strongly appealed to Steve Jobs, who had a self-professed hunger to "make a dent in the universe.
It is for entrepreneurs and for people who want to be successful in our industry a message that we need to embrace and vest ourselves in. Since Yogananda's passing in , many teachers have followed his trailblazing path to bring yoga to our world, helping make it a fixture in popular culture as it continues to take hold with young and old, the elite and the ordinary, the spiritualists and the atheists.
What distinguishes Yogananda from these subsequent emissaries is not simply that he paved the way for the modern yoga movement, but that from the outset he focused far beyond physical exercises and shone a powerful and practical torchlight on the path to yoga's true purpose: actualizing the infinite potentials within us all. On this first International Yoga Day, let's tip our hats to the teacher who first introduced the modern world to the transformative power of yoga as a timeless inner discipline, and who was such a silent force in the life of the greatest entrepreneur of our times.
As you roll out your yoga mat, get into your favorite yoga pose, and feel a gentle zephyr of peace sweep over you, perhaps you can take pause to wonder at what experiences in consciousness may lie just beyond your present reach if you also embark on yoga's fuller, inner journey toward self-realization. Yogananda would have called those experiences "undreamed of possibilities. And as you get closer to realizing your true self within, you may find that you, too, are ready to make a dent in the universe.
And that may be why Jobs, in his own quest for higher consciousness, turned to Yogananda. The opinions expressed here by Inc. More from Inc. Spiritual Economics. Eric Butterworth. How to Succeed with People. Stephen R. Go Thunk Yourself! Self-Help Techniques. Robert C. Are You Positive.
