Sutra Sampling. Numero Cuatro.

 1.4 —‘It is the reason that sometimes it is said that we are asleep, and that we need to awaken. That awakening to the Self is the meaning of Yoga.’

When I don’t do yoga, or I skip meditation, or simply spend a few days neglecting my body with crappy food,  booze, or what-have-you– I feel blocked.  My energy is low, my channels are clogged and I feel like a zombie.  This zombie like ‘sleep’ state is what this Yoga Sutra is referring to (as far as I am concerned).  When you are in a ‘sleeping’ state you aren’t fully awake and alive to what the world has to offer.  Yoga helps you wake up and smell the roses.
