The next time you see yourself grasping to your Yoga practice out of insecurity and fear causing an inflated sense of ego and compensation for a lack of self-worth (or you see someone else doing so) you may want to kindly remind yourself or someone else that spiritual practice is still Samsara! It’s still Prakriti! It’s still Maya! Our practice was born from the ego and the conceptual mind that we are attempting to transcend or disidentify with! Authentic Yoga is an incredibly intelligent technique and philosophy. But mostly, it’s a paradox!
Indeed, you shouldn’t have fear and attachment motivating you at all, because essentially, you’ll have to purify yourself of that at some point as well. It’s another delusion preventing the state of Yoga to be realized. It’s another toxin invading a potentially transformative relationship: the one between you and your spiritual practice.
