“We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh
Birth, Life, Death
With every breath, there is birth, life, and death; creation, sustenance, and destruction. Yoga often refers to this triad energy of Nature as Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, or by other terms, rajas, sattva, and tamas. With practice, we become more aware of the presence, power, and balance of all three. Yoga can help us daily to remember our deeper relationship with all of Nature and the inescapable connectedness of “inter-being”. Yoga is the engaged awakening within these cycles of impermanence to the peace of eternal freedom.
