“Man is a stream whose source is hidden. Our being is descending into us from we know not whence.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Over-Soul
The practice of yoga offers the possibility to connect with the experience of “our being descending into us.” It is through breath that life flows through us and yoga is all about breath awareness. As the breath is always changing so are we also in a constant state of change, and yet amidst all of the change we each have a constant “sense of self.” To watch the breath is the key to entering into the “stream” of which we are all apart.
