Yoga is not just a philosophy, but philosophy in action. For Arjuna, the way out of the maze is through action, through practicing his dharma. Quoting Lord Krishna’s words from the Bhagavad Gita: “At the beginning of time I declared two paths for the pure heart: Jnana Yoga, the contemplative path of spiritual wisdom, and Karma Yoga, the active path of selfless service.”

Krishna further explains the permanence of the Self. Births and deaths are not real events, except when they are viewed as points along the continuous process of death and renewal… becoming, being, and passing away. The maha vinyasa (term which roughly translates to “great cycle”) of human life is being born, living, and finally dying. This cycle has happened in the past, it is happening now and will happen in the future. The process of living life is important. Did we enjoy every moment?

On a collective scale these unchecked emotions, which I call “etheric garbage” distract us from our true purpose and cause a war within ourselves.
