We live in a world that focuses far too much on the self: the instant gratification of "the one you're with", instant downloads, online shopping, same day delivery and on and on. Christ said, "Don't store treasures for yourself on Earth where moth and rust destroy and thieves break in and steal." And some of our earlier and later practices reinforce the idea that possessions are transitory. The final of the Five Remembrances say, "I cannot keep anything. I came here empty-handed and I go empty-handed. My actions are my only true belongings." In doing yoga I subscribe to the idea that the strength of my body and the health of my mind are only of any use in service to others.
