Dwapara Yuga

This is a personal blog around the dawning of Dwapara Yuga, the age of energy. The age is characterized by a breakdown of the idea of a material world and a growing consciousness of the underlying unity of peoples, energy, and nature. A good starting point to the subject is the post "New Age of Dwapara Yuga?" The oldest post is the "Yuga Timeline," which lead to a couple of print and electronic books in Dwapara 307 (2007).

Kaizen - Continuous improvement

Kaizen is the Japanese idea of continuous improvement. It is most well known for workers in car factories looking for small improvements every day that results in fantastically high quality vehicles that keep their utility and value for years.

It's a mindset that can be applied to any personal activity from creative writing, to martial arts, to career growth.

The Yugas broadly describe the evolution of humans on this planet. A glance at a news app shows where Dwapara Yuga innovations are displacing Kali Yuga limitations — you can't do this or that because of race, religion, sex, or national origin being some of the most obvious barriers falling away over the last 100+ years.

No matter your karma, you are not bound to the Yuga average but can transcend it — with a better mindset and application, even if just a few minutes per day of a positive activity like meditation, a sports drill, or study. It's the continuous small habits that build us and not showy and (potentially) shallow efforts like a fancy gym-spa membership or a get rich scheme from TikTok or Instagram influencers.

A boxer wins in the ring from years of mental, physical, and technical training — the will to win, thousands of hours of conditioning, sparring, and building boxing IQ from coaches and camps around footwork, setups, and timing.

My Spiritual name is Gyanananda, which means bliss thru knowledge. I take the name as a motivation for daily self-improvement / self-mastery!
