The Upanishads tell us, "As great as the infinite space beyond is the space within the lotus of the heart." From the time of your birth, you have been called to explore the world outside of you. Meditation is the exploration of your inner world. Yoga encourages you to be as familiar with your inner world of thoughts, feelings, memories, desires, and imagination as you are with the outer world of time, space, and causality. When you can move through both the inner and outer domains of life with freedom and finesse, you fulfill the highest purpose of yoga.
