If you were at Disneyland… This is the analogy I have liked lately, though I do not mean to trivialize Life by calling it Disneyland. But, Disneyland is the "happiest place on Earth." It is fun to go there when you are a kid. It's fun even when you are older. But, if you are in the middle of the Awesome Movement Of Life, the happiest place on Earth, thinking you are somewhere else, or thinking you are here by mistake, you are not going to be the "happiest person on Earth" in the "happiest place on Earth."
And so, the trick, the technique is, "Be attentive to where you are." BE CURIOUS about where you are. That is the deal. Say to yourself, "What is the truth of this new Now, really?" in order to direct your attention to the new Now — Life, live — in order to experience what's happening (LIFE!) with a little more clarity than a moment ago. Curiosity means you are giving new attention to "the same old stuff" — new attention to the moment you are in and the people you find yourself with. Because the insight is, wow, what is really going on is very different from what we think. Life is way more awesome than we give it credit for. Yoga is the inquiry into Truth. It is always new.
