Tasting Brahmacharya –  4th Yama of Yoga – Non Excess

Preserve Your Energy, life force, Prana is what is sustaining your life and is the most precious currency that you have in this life.  The fourth Yama in Yoga, Brahmacharya, is all about using, preserving, and saving one’s creative, life sustaining energy in order to live a vital life and to connect deeper with our Higher Self, aligning mind, body and spirit in harmony. – yogaalive.net

Deborah Adele describes Brahmacharya as a reminder that we aren’t embodied in this form to feel dead but to feel alive.  We can’t snuff out our vitality and passion through overindulgence only through expression.  Howard Thurman uinderstood the importance of our passion to the world when he said, “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive.  Then just do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
