Like kids in a candy store

by Christina on July 15, 2010

People sometimes criticize the practice of yoga or meditation by saying it creates “aloofness.”

John Campbell explained that no, it’s not that at all. Instead, we are actually freeing ourselves from the useless and wasteful thoughts that usually clog our minds.
“We are like kids in a candy store grabbing at everything – our sense are overwhelmed. We need to take control of the process and make it deliberate.”

John, what a great video – thank you.

He's so right – most of our thoughts ARE useless and should be uninvited!
