What does yoga mean for me?
Yoga is the union between the Self and the Divine. It is a practice that works on the body, mind, and spirit. In essence, we are energy, who come into the Earth and take a physical manifestation of a body. We feel, emote, and relate. We have dreams, plans, and aspirations. Our body and mind help us to work towards them and to hopefully achieve them.
Yet, if it was just a question of eating, sleeping, earning a living and procreating, our world of wealth and comfort would fulfill the basic human need of being happy and finding meaning in life. Surprisingly, it is not so.
To live means a lot more than that, and every day we discover again and again that there is something more to life. And ‘that more’ makes us feel alive, not just merely living.
Every one of us has its own journey. And in this journey, we should strive to become more humane, rather than just remain a mere human. The practice of yoga helps us find the source, from where our inner journey begins. Because from the inner the outer is created. It also helps us become a better human being and to cultivate qualities like compassion, empathy, and care. When all these begin to awaken inside us, life is not just about us, but also about the world around us.
