Let’s talk fundamental physics. Electricity and magnetism are usually referenced in an inanimate context. Today let’s rather think about how the living human body can be described as an electro-magnetic object of fractal nature.
If you have ever been shocked the idea of electricity in the body should come as no surprise. However, what may be surprising are the profound implications of this simple natural phenomena.
The fractal nature of our bodies give rise to whole worlds within us. Two particular places of note are the brain and the body as a whole.
The fact that electrical resistance is measured in “ohms” shouldn’t be lost on us as a mere coincidence. The audible similarity with the cosmic sound of Aum(Amen) is uncanny to say the least.
Samadhi, is the ultimate goal of yoga, union with the divine infinite bliss that is God. Arrival at this state can come from deep and constant dhyana (meditation). This is a state of consciousness described by many names. I highly recommend further reading on the topic, but don’t get lost. Great gurus say this is a state that can only be known through experience, rather than intellectual grappling, therefore a steady yoga practice is recommended to know samadhi.
Firstly, dhyana is a Sanskrit word that translates into “meditation”. In yoga meditation is defined as Dharana (concentration) focused on God. Once you can fully control your prana to draw it inward and concentrate that prana on God, Dhyana is the result. Since the study of Dhyana is beyond this article’s scope learn more here.
Dharana refers to focus or concentration of the mind. The Sanskrit language birthed the term and Patanjali laid it out in his 8 limbs of yoga. The power of concentration can be strengthened by the practice of various scientific techniques offered in the corpus of yoga knowledge. Watch the video below and learn more here.
