The Uses of Adversity

 One saint wrote: “Welcome all the unhappiness because it reminds us all the time of the nearness and existence of God. We know that we have no help except God. If I have luxury but it is taking me away from the Lord, I do not want that kind of luxury.”


The goal of everyone is the same but we name it differently.  We are heading towards one goal of peace, happiness or knowledge.  Ancient people set a norm that one must seek four things in life – ayu, vidya, dhanam and yasham or kirti.  These are good guidelines for living. 


Body-based Yoga means aiming at the communion with God through physical discipline.  Yoga is for all.  It starts it’s experiments on the grossest from the physical body and it’s base.  Through the discipline of the mind it cultures the spiritual personality of man.


The scriptures have mentioned that there are two paths. One is the sensual path or Preya. The other is the path of wisdom or Shreya, which brings everything to the tips of your fingers. What seems very attractive in the beginning may be bitter in the end, and what seems bitter in the beginning may be sweet at the end.
