Yoga & the Truth…
“When one experiences truth, the madness of finding fault with others disappears”.
– Some yoga wisdom from Goenka.
Goenka is a great teacher. I have studied occasionally at the Vipassna yoga centre in the Blue Mountains. I miss Goenka when I am not doing Vipassna.
The above makes perfect sense to me, but I can only conclude that I have not encountered the truth in my yoga practice. There remains in me the need to think internally in a manner that is needling, or downright critical of others. What is this impulse? When I think about it, I know that negativity towards other human beings is essentially my own mask for inadequacy. “If I am this and they are that, then I can only feel good about being this if I become critical of them being that”. And the mind of course, LOVES its own games.
