Here too we have problems nothing seems to be easy;
have you noticed that?. What worked well in the past or in other
cultures is not necessarily going to work in our culture today. I
am reminded here of James Long who once told me that yoga
as taught in the East is not suitable to our "western constitution."
I had to agree with him. But it can be adopted or changed to
fit in our society or to a particular indivudal. This basically is what
I did for myself. What I am stressing here is the need for
flexibility in any kind of training or advocation of techniques.
