Yoga crowd smug self centered with huge egos: Have you ever wondered?
Or even thought?
That a lot of people who take yoga have a certain smugness about them.
And those of you who don’t take it well you just don’t belong.
Don’t belong to the in-crowd.
The in-crowd that is special, unique and so with it in today’s society.
A society that is full of uncertainty, fear and loathing.
But fear not those avid yoga practitioners do not feel that at all.
They are full of self-confidence, joy, and brimming with happiness and contentment.
And they leave us mere mortals – the non-practitioners – in the dust.
And the yoga image guru’s reinforce that constantly.
After all – all you have to see is any television commercial or print ad.
You see nothing but happy, contented people having the time of their lives.
Never mind that many of them are exhausted, worn out or just fed up.
That is a no-no in yoga circles.
Onwards and upwards is a constant reenforcement conveyed by the yoga masters.
The whole thing is a kind of narcissism.
It’s all about me – a paen to the 20th. century’s homage – it’s all about me baby, so let’s post an Instagram picture to my account, so the whole world can see how special I am.
And lest you think these musings are the simple rambling of a disillusioned observer of the yoga scene.
A recent study confirmed it all.
Yoga is all about me.
Here are the musings of one author on the subject.
“According to Buddhist teaching, the self is an illusion. The religion preaches a fundamentally selfless worldview, encouraging followers to renounce individual desires and distance themselves from self-concern. To advance this perspective, millions of people around the world practice yoga and meditation.”
Yoga crowd smug self centered with huge egos, and the whole yoga thing has gotten out of control. Now even dogs are caught up in yoga fever.
