Self-preservation and prevarication in Yoga

Gerrymandering or moving the goalposts are common self-preservation strategies like various defence mechanisms and reflex actions and therefore the fallacies involved often go unnoticed. Privileging the demands of the vital vis-à-vis intellectual luxuries and nonchalance may not be a desirable phenomenon in Yoga but carnivals do have a bearing on sanity and ensure reality check. Integral Yoga, like postmodernism, is a heaven for moving the goalposts and writing your own rules. However, the trick is to be sensitive to ethico-political dimensions all the while, while keeping the antenna of aspiration aloft. [TNM55]
