Who Are You?
The way we see our body is not the same as it is, the body which we think of ourselves is a gross body made of five elements Air, Water, Fire, Ether and Earth but apart from these there are two more bodies one is this subtle or astral body and other is the causal body.
The subtle body mainly consists of mind, intelligence and ego. The causal body is pure bliss which we call as soul. People nowadays run behind the astral body but by nude yoga one can know its causal body.
What are we doing?
Living in today’s busy life all of us are running behind material desires, because we all are wanting more and more for our material body. Just like fire is covered by smoke and a mirror is covered by dust similarly our consciousness is covered by different degrees of lust and it is the lust which provokes us to run behind material desires. So to uncover ourselves, to know what are we meant for and what are we doing we need to practice naked yoga, which connects us with ourselves.
What’s your purpose?
The main purpose of our life is to know ourselves that means to know our soul which means that we need to know God first. According to some spiritualist liberation means merging of the soul into the universal consciousness (which they say as God) and to some liberation means attaining the kingdom of God. It is now up to you that which path you will choose , when you will perform nude yoga you will know you soul and yourself and that every time you will know which path you will choose and what is your purpose of life.
