Welcome to the Language Yoga Challenge! As a quick refresher, Language Yoga is a linguistic tool and spiritual practice which works to bring unity to language by translating externalizing nouns and pronouns (we, you, us, they, our, it, them, names of other people…) into personal pronouns which promote ownership (me, myself, I…).
Example: “You must be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ~Gandhi
Translates to: “I must be the change that I wish to see in myself.”
The purpose of this challenge is to reveal the subconscious mind so it can be integrated into the conscious ego in order to promote balance and healing. Learn more about this translation tool in the about section and at our website, languageyoga.org. Each week we are going to be laying down a new quote for your translating pleasure!
Complete the challenge by doing the translation and thinking about the questions that go along with the quote. Please share your experience in the comment section below. Good luck!
Without further ado, here is this week’s quote and questions:
“When you unite in your consciousness two halves of yourself, you’ve found your way back into the infinite all and nothing, you’ve become identical with God again!”
~From the book Initiation by Elisabeth Haich
Answer the following questions:
1) How did doing this translation make me feel?
2) When I compare the original with the translation what comes up? Which one do I like better?
3) How can I apply the knowledge I have gained from the translation to my own life?
