‘Don’t treat mind like a slave.’ Ajahn Brahm said.

In yoga self-practice, I hear my teacher’s voice in my mind.

Stand upright! Leg straight! Your knees are not staright enough! More!

The more I try to force my body part by part, the more aggressive my mind is.

*

Stop focing. Stop criticizing. Stop treating myself as a slave.

Slave of the idea ‘what it should be’.

*

Aware whole body.

Allow my body move towards where it wants.

Body stands more upright. Legs gets straighter.

*

Body is freeed.

Mind is freed.

Grows towards where it wants.
