The search for Spirit in a physical world has been our human quest. Yoga defines the union of the physical and the spiritual by using the human body (or universal anatomy) as the standard measurement. Breath is the thread that links every level of our lives with the physical world. Nutrition gives us strength, and in attending to our nutritional needs, we obtain purpose and clear objectives. Self-sufficiency is the standard for prosperity while how we achieve self-sufficiency is our own personal mythology or value system. Meditation is a non-action, which allows the reclaiming of our self-sufficiency. The effectiveness of our lives depends on how well we establish a reliable interaction (truth) with the elemental (earth, air, fire, water) levels of nature, which in themselves are self-perpetuating. Our interaction with earth gives us locomotion, or mobility. Our interaction with air gives us expressiveness. Our interaction with fire gives us dynamics. Our interaction with water gives us adaptability. Each of these elements has its own intelligence and energy. By observation and meditation we can identify with our own elemental composition or atomic qualities. Mythology/ analogy are fundamental human experiences as we learn to reexamine our actions as human "beings". The search for truth is enhanced by sharing or exchanging concepts (communication). The universal anatomy (our bodies) is the primary tool for exploration, communication, transportation, and the reclaiming of our "being". Meditation, the non-action of self-sufficiency, results in a single state of body and mind called liberation . Liberation the result of our search.
