Practice makes perfect

Last evening I attended a talk by Dr. Ian Whicher, professor in the religious studies department at the University of Manitoba. He spoke to about thirty folks at Yoga Public.  The gist of my take on it is that yoga is a spiritual way of life. The body and the movements are tools to bring out our true nature which is consciousness or spirit as some would say. The yoga practitioner learns through practice to still the mind and to become  conscious of one’s own consciousness. He said that we suffer because of our ego. When we live through our egos we identify ourselves with external things which is not our true nature and that leads to more suffering but with diligent practice you learn to free yourself and be happier.  More to come  Have a sweet day.
