Yogic thought for the day

From Osho:
Chesterton says angels fly because they take themselves lightly.

That is a nice thought. The biggest problem I have while teaching a tough pose is the militancy with which people approach it, trying to shut down an inner critical voice through their achievement. That is a subconscious pattern of being, and came about when you grew up, and had your parents trying to lift you up beyond the rut they had themselves fallen into . so yes, most of us carry that baggage of our parents inside us, and when we are on the mat, we succumb to that critical voice once more, trying and trying hard. To be really childlike on the mat, to laugh when u make a mistake, and move on.. and then, therefore land lightly in a fall... that is the place. That is yoga:)
