Pathanjali says, if you can sit silently without moving your body for a few hours, you are growing in the capacity to be. And the more the body follows you; you will have a greater being within you, a stronger being within you. And, remember, if the body is not moving, your mind cannot move, because mind and body are not two things. If the body is non-moving, the mind is non-moving, you are centered. This non-moving posture is not a physiological training only. It is just to create a situation in which centering can happen. When you are, when you become centered, when you know what it means to be, then you can there”.
Learn what? Learn to drop the mind; learn to grow vertically in consciousness. There are skies behind the skies to be explore, and this is our destiny and destination.
It is high time we free yoga from the clutches of “little men”, and restore its glory. Remember, the root meaning of the word “Yoga” is union - Union with oneself, uniting all the fragments of our being, ie., body, emotions, intellect, heart and soul. There is a long way to go and we have to actualize our potential. Why waste time playing with stones when we have already found the real diamond?.
