Yoga is something we be in and not something we do. This is because the word yoga comes from the Sanskrit term ‘yog’ which means union. Yoga is a word for the mind.
In fact, our intellect is constantly in union with something or someone. So if we are thinking about someone our intellect is in yoga with them for that time.
The ones we remember the most, our state of mind gets connected to them.
Where is the wire of our thoughts connected majority times? Or a simple question would be what or who am I remembering the most throughout the day?
Thoughts decide feelings. To maintain a constant state of lightness the intellect should not go towards energy depleting things.
In a way, yoga is all about asking the self “what is my mind in union with right now?” and “if it is any good?”.
While doing asanas or any other physical exercise,
simply creating thoughts of peace
will give complete benefit to the body and the mind.
