There are two ways you can play music.
The first one is to follow a written piece.
The second one is to improvise.
When you refer to an existing tradition, you simply copy mind sets that others designed for you.
You try to fit it into your mind.
Sometimes what these traditions designed would take you centuries to recover and reinvent if you had to.
Other times, what you read is what you know already.
Very often, all you have to do is create a mind set and action system that matches your unique life experience.
You are free!
Does reading a specific book free you? Or does it limit you?
Will you discover more about yourself by reading what is already written or by taking a white page and letting your own mind reveal itself through your own words?
Both approaches are valid of course.
Sometimes you want to relax within an existing structure.
Other times, you want to tap into deeper layers of your mind and bring to the surface the key insights which are in you.
You don’t have to fit in.
You don’t have to limit yourself within what already exists.
If every human being was repeating what has already been discovered, there would never be anything new.
Dare to explore and find in you the mind sets, ideas, actions which reflect what you already are.
Dare to be a creator!
To your Yoga!
