“All life is a Yoga (union) of Nature (matter) seeking to manifest God (divine) within itself”
-Synthesis of Yoga by Sri Aurobindo
Yoga: Definition: “union” of the self, and all matter for that matter, with the Supreme Being or ultimate principle.
Origin: Sanskrit, literally, yoking, akin to Latin jungere to join
Yoke: Definition:to join, couple, link, or unite.
To become a master of “yoga” or a master of “union with the divine” practice reconnecting to the Divine Supreme YOU within…the transcendent true being that exists behind all forms.
“For the aim of the SPIRIT is to to be seen in all things”
The exercise of “yoga/union with the Divine” transforms and restores, uplifts and elevates the many masquerades of matter… the divine self concealed… into it’s true singular Sacred self…the divine self revealed.
“The universal ONE “is” the tree, the flower, the sky and the human eye…the ONE who hides behind the mouth that tastes and the heart that breaks”
The Sacred self hopes by reaching down and being the enlivening ONE within nature/ form… in time, it’s matter/appearance self will awaken and rise up into knowing that all along it has always been the ONE true Divine self…this is the play of the universe.
“…to make the bodily life also divine must be God’s final seal upon His work in the universe” – Sri Aurobindo
