“The pattern which connects is a meta pattern. It is a pattern of patterns. It is that meta pattern which defines the vast generalization that, indeed, it is patterns which connect.” –Gregory Bateson
David’s notes on this quote:
Every posture is for exploring the pattern that connects them. This one universal asana can have countless names, Samasthiti, Mulabandhasana, Sarvangasana, Utkatasana, etc. Look for the principles behind the asana. The meta pattern. Suffering is to be out of step with the connecting pattern.
