Yes, Yoga is good for those seeking the path of realization, but it isn't the only way. If the energy in your mind and body have calmed, meditation alone will guide you to self-realization. This is what is lacking in many Yoga teacher training courses. Yoga as described by Patanjali isn't just a bunch of postures with jumping for cardio.

There isn't anything wrong with yoga exercise but we should make it known that the deeper benefits are self realization and spiritual growth. Which brings to mind that religion has been a dividing point for mankind since the beginning. Imagine God or Gods watching us kill each other over differences concerning the worship of God or Gods.

We need to take an objective view and love each other for our differences. About who created hell: many religions believe in it, but some don't. One side point to consider - is the evil one the creator of hell or is God the creator of hell?

Does the evil one have supernatural powers? If you say yes, is he a lesser God? This creates a paradox for those who believe in one God only. Are the angels supernatural creatures and could they be classified as lesser Gods? I'm not stirring the pot, but I want you to think. Why do we kill each other over different beliefs in God?

Let us pray that we will be forgiven.
