The Rest is Commentary.

Via on Dec 22, 2009

Yoga on the mountain in Greece

Yoga philosophy is sublimely simple and profound.
It can all be expressed in three phrases.

 At first I thought Yoga was complicated.

Then I wrote about about it
And it began to seem simple.

 I started reading the ancient texts
And Yoga again seemed complicated.

 But the better I knew
The Yoga Sutra, The Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads

The more I realized

 Yoga philosophy is sublimely simple and profound.

 It can all be expressed in three phrases:

 CONCENTRATE THE MIND
DETACH EGO FROM RESULTS
EXPERIENCE THE WONDER OF THE UNIVERSE

As they say about the Golden Rule
All the rest is commentary.

  1. But, as Oprah says, the question is: "we know what the goal is. How is the question! How do we do it?!"

  2. Tee says:

    And as Arthur Rubinstein answered (or so it is rumoured when it was he who was asked for directions, "how do you get to Carnegie Hall"), "Practice, practice, practice."

  3. Bob, I just re-read those three lines. Can you explain what you mean by detatching ego from results? Thanks for that. It's very thought provoking, The photo is amazingly beautiful and textured. Where was it taken? Best regards, Michael
