Goal of Yoga should be God, but not just Self.

DATTA DHARMA SUTRAM (By His Holiness Shri Datta Swami)
PART 9: DATTA YOGA SUTRAM
एष्वरं विना नास्तिकभोगो निन्द्यः |9:3|
Transalation:
Leaving God as the target, atheistic tendency of worldly enjoyment is to be condemned.
Explanation:
[Of course, physical health and mental peace are essential for the devotee to do service to God. This is part of the path only and not the goal. Hanuman maintained both these perfectly for the effective service to God Rama. Up to Pratyaahaara, the fifth stage, in the path, both these are dealt by Patanjali. But, today, people have made both these as the target. The other three stages are related to concentration on God. Some people stop with the fifth stage and some others take the other three stages also and keep some worldly item like a point, respiration, etc., as the target on which the concentration is to be done. All this is the atheistic tendency of materialistic life and shall be condemned by devotees.]

Yoga is Union , God with Self (No Self) ...... One cannot be Realized without God~

If one says " I am Self Realized but know not yet God" ...... that is just another False Self (Ego/Persona) , it may be better than the last self claimed but it is still not the REAL ONE , the TWO merge Super-Conscious and Conscious or it is not real yet ~

The way I see yoga is like the light of a dark room (our polluted mind). The most practice, the most light in the room. Then you start removing the shadows and wrong beliefs built by society and see the truth.

To me, yoga is recognizing your truest self in tune with the universe/god. Aligning the body to calm the mind in order to receive all that is in our highest good. So that we may be a vessel for the universe to express itself via our creativity and ability to help heal each other.
