Is there such a thing like a way of life? Many do not believe that there is and generally feel that a person functions according to a situation. Yet, one should develop good concentration and set up long term goals of a spiritual kind. Nothing should be done out of impulses. Worthwhile objectives with a holistic outlook set the path of a spiritual way of life. Only a person who is very balanced and aware can maintain a correct attitude and heightened awareness. Also we have to become aware of our urges, strong inclinations and act accordingly with full awareness.
The practical applications of yogic ideals in daily life include the simple philosophies behind the techniques of Yoga that contribute to better living. These techniques aim at removing the cause of the physical illness if any, and thereafter enhancing the mental attributes (leading to a calm, concentrated and steady mind) thereby realising one’s own potential and spiritual development.
