Reflection and Inspiration - 12th Mar 2005

Keep your spine erect. The rest of your body must be loose.

- Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
This was Jaggi's way of telling to live in a way that is both serious and playful at the same time. Serious enough to stay on the path without getting lost in the way, and playful so that the journey does not become a burden. Swaying to either extreme will become detrimental to progress, and the key is to maintain the balance. If I must sway some way, I would prefer to sway towards the playful end. Maintaining this balance requires awareness, since it is more convenient to drop it all and just be associated with one aspect. This balance is a highwire act, and is more like an art. Jaggi gives a live demonstration all the time.
