From a yogic perspective a full life is a present life. It is not so much what we accomplish, but how we accomplish it. Yogic practice teaches us how to live from all 3 centers of being: body, mind and heart. When one or more of these centers is left out of the equation we are missing out on the fullness of experience. Yoga understands that being present means not always being comfortable and having to acknowledge what pains us. In doing so we are able to apply the correct action to continuously bring ourselves back to our deepest beliefs and values. When our 3 centers are aligned (meaning that there is no contradiction between our thoughts, feelings and actions) and we are using our energy consciously and purposefully we are living life to the fullest, the results of which are meaningful and satisfying (no matter how they measure up to society’s standards).
