What are the Three Gunas?

Another good image is the see-saw. Our experiences shift back and forth from one end of the see-saw to the other- the highs and lows. High energy- slump. Slump- high energy.

The Way of the Warrior-Saint: The Path of Devotion- Īśvarapraṇidhāna

Without delving too deeply into any theology, yoga presupposes a Light that illuminates from beyond: the Ishvara- the Ground of Being. That Ground of Being is a mirror of earthly ‘ground’.

Yoga helps us touch that Reality and develop an unshakeable faith in the magic that flows through all life-forms.
