“Yoga as a Field of Consciousness and Love.”

In yoga, we practice asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, contemplations, meditations etc.
These practices are meant for us to investigate our states of being and awareness in the field of consciousness. Over time and using regular yoga practice we can learn to sensitize our perceptions and observe ‘what is’ from the feedback given to us by these, our beautiful and astonishing bodily instruments.
Through the gradual and pragmatic understanding of the alignment techniques -which are not merely the alignment of our our bodily structures, including all the body’s sheaths – but most importantly include alignment with the natural order, the balance and flow of life, with heaven’s kingdom, or, the field of Awareness; undifferentiated Consciousness,  – we will find no need to idolise or place on pedestals external gurus, spiritual teachers or leaders.
Is it not our common ultimate truth and understanding that we’re born whole, complete and free?
And in owning this utter understanding of our inherent freedom, is not this realisation inspirational?
