unearthing the inner yogi
Life is good! This simple idea is at the heart of a raw yoga practice. The Ancients captured this idea perfectly by calling life Zindagi, an Urdu word that captures not only the literal meaning of life as a physical experience but also the more powerful sense of the word: Life is a game of births and rebirths. We have all been here on earth many many lifetimes. In some lifetimes we were good and in others bad. Successful in some and utter failures in others. We have all killed others in one lifetime or more, violated them and then chose to have the same experiences ourselves in other lifetimes. We have all done great good as well. We have done it all and experienced it all.
