"Pie in the Sky" Yogini: Tamasic

It doesn't matter who you are or how balanced you perceive yourself to be, we all go through the levels of the Gunas as they are a part of the cycles of nature and the universe. We can not live without experiencing tamasic qualities: lethargy, ignorance, or doubt, to name a few; however, the physical structure of our body is also considered tamasic as well as qualities of stability and feeling grounded. When we sit in meditation (tamas or no movement), the goal is to ease the activity of the mind (Rajas), so that we may enter a state of balance (Sattva), to move towards a state of pure consciousness. Let go of trying to move through tamasic or rajasic behavior as they are essential qualities on the path to harmony, balance, equanimity and higher consciousness.
