Got Inspiration?

"When you are inspired by some
great purpose,
some extraordinary project,
all your thoughts
break their bounds:
Your mind transcends limitations,
your consciousness expands in every
direction and you find yourself
in a new, great, and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties, and talents
become alive, and you
discover yourself
to be a greater person by far
than you ever dreamed
yourself to be."

Often called the "father of yoga," Patanjali was the guy who codified his thoughts and knowledge of yoga in The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali. Is estimated this humble physician, who became one of the world's greatest sages, roamed India somewhere between 200 B.C. and 200 A.D.
