Knowing Is Loving, The Similarities of Raja Yoga and Art

Published: July 19, 2013
Becoming a yogi is probably a good example for any role of life, except the criminal, but the parallels with becoming a painter are particularly fun. Yoga, literally ‘union with God’ actually makes any endeavor better but then so does art. The craving for "newness" is in all of us. Usefulness is the most basic urge. "Knowing Is Loving" is about treating life in an honest way to achieve harmony.
