Random thought....

...it's a little disconcerting to be reading about Yoga and then constantly finding myself picturing Yogi Bear when I read about a Yogi. I think this may be indicative of either significant immaturity (not neccesarilly a bad thing ;) or limited tolerance for excessive philosophizing about these things.

I seem to work better at eastern philosophies if they are explained in terms of "you want to do _____ and feel ____" as opposed to "____ shows you the connection to the energies in the world and you want to become one with it" blah blah blah. That's not to say that those deeper concepts are false, just that they don't do anything for me when I'm learning how to contort myself into new positions or how to throw punches and kicks (in non-Yoga classes) etc....
