An "aha" moment

yesterday when reading i figured out that the point of yoga is to breath, which I had known before, but the point of the exercises is to release the blocks and tensions in the muscles so the breath can go in there and heal. The point of doing cleansing techniques is to make it to where you have no buildup, so that part of the body can breath. I know it is very simplistic and most probably understand it already, but it was nice for me when I understood the point of it

That's actually really cool.

Dear Tubeseeker,

Thank you for sharing your sweet experience with all of us. I really felt it. To me, these insights are true yoga, are true union...sweet and spontaneous. On hearing the same messages repeatedly, I like to think of it as distilling our lessons until we are immersed in the pure sweetness of Truth.

If I may build on what you shared: Mukunda reminds me--and all of his students--to cultivate friendliness toward these feelings and insights. With this welcoming, more insights will come and we will have the opportunity to know what we've "known before" (to use your language) on a deeper level and in our subtle bodies. These experiences are 4th kosha experiences, not mind, just wisdom.

When I read your post, I felt the sweetness of your experience and had the insight that "the point of yoga is to build prana...to build and sustain prana..." Thank you for the reminder!

Many blessings,

That's beauty-full...I love those insights, it's like the heart opening more, sometimes the insights bring tears along for the ride. I feel the deep breath in asana and pranayam moving to the areas that are blocked, and waking those areas up and getting more fresh blood there and more life energy too...it's so amazing isn't it!
