Temptation makes us undisciplined.
Our enemy is temptation and our friend is yoga. The temptation is devil’s paradise. It makes us undisciplined, unruly, disorderly. It distorts our mind and emotion, and soon the effect is visible in our body. It is not to confuse with motivation or willingness. The temptation is a state of mind in anticipation or wild imagination of a result yet to meet. It manifests in low, moderate, and severe form. Its moderate form is healthy. Extreme temptation has many side effects. It accelerates the brain wave beta rays leading to anxiety.
Here comes the usefulness of meditation and yoga. It not only insulates our mind from the side effects but also improves our emotional quotient and intelligence quotient. Our mind becomes intelligible to triggers of temptation, not to fall prey to its evil design. The practitioners of meditation acquire the wisdom to check the triggers.

Yoga makes us a complete person of what we are as a human being. It restores our natural self as a prototype of the divine. It opens up the channels of self-expression, freedom, autonomy, and self-regulation. We become the master of our self that external stimulant and trigger have little effect on our being. It simultaneously teaches us our freedom and responsibility. We become self-conscious, self-guided, and self-chosen complete person. We listen to what our mind and heart say a response mix of both logic and emotion. In a way, yoga produces us a self-regulated and self-determined person.
