yoga is for realizing our potential

 We all receive God-given talents, and it is our duty to develop them energetically to realize their full potential, otherwise it is as if we are turning our nose up at the gifts of life. Our talents, however much they vary from individual to individual, when realized to the full, provide the link that will take us back to a reunion with the divine.
