“There are two classes of beings, the fallible and the infallible. In the material world every living entity is fallible, and in the spiritual world every living entity is called infallible.” (Bhagavad Gita 15.16).
Unity with every living entity protects us while identifying with our separate-ness makes us weak. What if my heart thought itself superior to my foot and decided to cut it off with some blockade or border? The whole body would be made weaker because I’d no longer be able to walk around. The infallibility, or certainty and strength, of the body comes from the whole body working together as a unified whole.
To choose separate-ness is to choose a path that leads to despair and destruction.
Yoga treats the whole person: not just the body, not just the mind, but all the layers of the self to elevate one’s health and consciousness so that one can achieve a spiritual level of connection to the Supreme Source, unity, and infallibility.
Where to start: practice yoga and start to look for similarities and how we are all interdependent in each other (not just humans with humans, but all species of plants and animals, and Earth herself).
