The yogic way of living is being in tune, as much as you can, with the Divine, God, your Spirit. You work, eat, sleep, enjoy, relate and participate in life in a conscious way rather than an egotistical way.
Yoga is a way of life. In the Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna says: Yogah karmasukaushalam—“Yoga is the tactful or skillful way of action.” When you are living a yogic life, work is play; life is relaxing, rejuvenating and regenerating. Yoga means union: becoming one with God, the Cosmos, Pure Consciousness. Yoga also means the process to attain union.
In Sanskrit it is written: Sama drishtena nata sama vatena—“Believe and realize that God is within everyone, but deal with each as they are.” This is the best way to live. If a person does egotistical things, don’t take him or her as divine from the outside. Inside, yes. Never forget that within the sinner, the downtrodden, the liar, the miserable or helpless, God is present. But since they are not behaving that way, deal with them the way they are. Worship the divine within and deal with the transgressor without. That is the yogic way of living. Whether you forgive or retaliate is up to you. If you take revenge you are bringing karma back to you; if you let go you are free. If you forgive you are a saint; if you take revenge you are human, but in either case you are seeing what is. If you live consciously in this yogic way, you will know how to live in the world and relate with others under all conditions and circumstances. —Swami Amar Jyoti
