Will I make it to shore? 
 
The other day I went body boarding in Carpinteria and decided to paddle out farther than usual. That is where the bigger waves happened after all.

In his translation and commentary on The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Sri Swami Satchidananda writes:

“You seem to have lost your original identity and have identified with your thoughts and body. Suppose I ask you who you are. If you say, ‘I am a man,’ you have identified yourself with ...
