Yoga is about gaining control of the contents of the mind. Yoga is not about standing on the head, retaining the breath for so many minutes, or meditating for hours (although if you have the ability to do those things, that’s alright – just don’t think of them as “goals”). Yoga means learning to keep the mind in its proper place as servant rather than master of our lives. All the practices of Yoga are available to help us on this path. Observe your thoughts. And notice the sorts of things you choose to read, ponder, and discuss. Are they helping you (and the world) or causing harm? When thoughts come, realize you have a choice whether to follow them or drop them! Peace to all! Namaste…. ❤
