Inspirational Quotes #19

Yoga means “union”. How you interpret that is entirely up to you, because we all have our own unique spiritual path to follow. So yoga can be “union with God”. It can be “union with your Higher Self”. It can be “union of the pranic energies”. It can be “union with Nature.” It can be “union with the present moment”. Whichever way you choose to interpret Yoga, it is ultimately about the process of becoming more aware and conscious of who we truly are. It is about experiencing the essence of our true nature… our natural state of being fully present. We were born with it, and as adults we need to re-discover it.
