What is that reality that inhabits in each of us that is beyond all change, are the words of Deepak Chopra. To that I say, it is the soul. The reality that holds our personality, ego and body is our soul. Our essential state with, or otherwise in the end. Knowing that we are the soul, each of us have a svabhava (an innate prakrit quality) is important to know. Svabhava (prakriti/ innate quality) is not the same as a person’s Gunnas (qualities in behavior, trained/untrained) or ttavas (the way of thinking). Svabhava is one’s own mentality behind behaviors or way of thinking, that seed or gift you are born with, that shapes personality/nature, can help transform if you know it.  One must look within to understand this of the body. It is the essential state, that you have mastered of the self. That answer is within, when we are at a spiritual place, and know our own bodies in truth, and are aware that we are the soul. Here are somethings to examine. What is it about the self, you love with a teardrop, that no one can touch or change or take away, that you know of and gathered of self, to be the self and in a way that you are happy and still honor that experience of the soul? What have you discovered about yourself through meditation, in silence, through experience, and in solitude? Hope it is the self that knows the difference now among others, your soul. And the self that is still aware of the four walls of our existence, keeping the idea of prakriti (the greatness of nature, the ever changing nature in all that surrounds us) and Sristi (that which creates in this world). It is what is in GOd’s control and the nature of our ever changing experience and what is manifested.  The reality nonetheless is the body’s soul, what you have come to discover of the self, for the evolution of the self of one’s soul. When we realize our essential state is the soul we understand our duty and purpose through yoga. It is this reality that teaches us harmony with our body’s soul.
