The fourth Yama is bramacharya or moderation. The word Brahmacharya actually translates as ‘behaviour which leads to Brahman’. Brahman is thought of as ‘the creator’ in Yogic terms, so what we’re basically talking about is behaviour which leads us towards ‘the divine’ or ‘higher power’.
Since it’s Saturday and I have throw a lot of information at you this week, I am going to simply invite you to direct your energy away from external desires and instead, towards finding peace and happiness within yourself. Take time today to be outdoors breathing fresh air or taking a delicious afternoon nap. Engage in self-care. Be contemplative and give your body what it needs. Think about where you direct your energy.
