Regardless of the outer circumstances of our lives, we are all on the same spiritual journey with the same destination – union with God. Whether we know it or not, we hunger for God and nothing but God can truly satisfy us for long. Each person is at a unique place on the spiritual journey yet there are always some others who are or have been in a similar place. Advice or assistance that is helpful to one person may be completely wrong for someone else. One person may be sinking in quicksand while another is staring bewildered at a fork in the road and a third person is distracted by beautiful scenery. Each person needs specialized assistance to become free of obstacles and continue the journey. Yoga means “union” and can be interpreted in various ways. On the path of devotion – bhakti – we can say yoga means “union with God.” It means using time-tested methods for uniting oneself – body, mind and spirit – with God.
