Erich: Most of you know this, and I know this, but, still, it's the thing!

The main practice is the holy instant. Well, let me back up a step, so it makes sequential sense.

Yoga is the inquiry into Truth. Start with that. Just be clear. That's what it is. It is not just P.E. It's one of the six schools of Indian philosophy.

It's an inquiry into Truth.

The question you dig with, therefore, is "What is the truth here, really?" That is the little sentence that should go through your mind a lot.

"What is the truth here, really?" — because Yoga is the inquiry into Truth...

The sentence I'm recommending is:

"I authorize my body to release whatever is not necessary to its perfect functioning, and I withdraw any prior conscious or unconscious authorization to the contrary."
