you sound much like the puritians .

they also in a simular way state their religiouness is so much better than every one elses..

people look at outward apperances God looks at the heart.He knows who has true faith in his Son Jesus or not.

A lot of people in western religions get nervous about yoga. The word simply means to join or to unite.

Many western religions teach of a distant unapproachable god.

But as it says in the Hebrew Scriptures. "GOD is ONE". And all of us, male and female are created in GOD'S image. We are created of the only substance that is.

We can confirm this to be so for ourselves by simply doing as suggested at Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)

"10 He says, "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

That's all! Be still! Simply quite the constant chatter of the mind and be aware of what is with all of your senses!

If anyone has sat down and tried this, it is a bit tricky.

This is where yoga comes in. It's simply a tool to help you learn to sit still!
