There is over 5000 years of history leading to the modern, western idea of yoga. The original concepts were more about the practice of accessing intense concentration through meditation in order to understand greater truths about the universe and the nature of consciousness. Two main schools of thought came from these practices: a "theistic" concept where they believed in some supreme being or larger power, and an "atheistic" concept where they were still spiritualists but believed a supreme being was not necessary to understand greater truths and achieve liberation from the cycle of life and death. In this audiojournal, I try to understand this rich history and probably just achieve an intense state of humility 😛.
