How does one deal with over-sensitivity which comes about through Yoga practice? Swamiji’s reply introduces the idea of ‘transparency’ or ‘fluidity’ as a way of adapting to this common challenge.
Transparency, or fluidity, means we’re not completely stuck in our ego identification. It comes down to ego actually. The less we are ego-identified, the more we can flow, moment to moment, with life as it arises.Swami Nishchalananda

Nothing changes…. it’s like you’re creating a sense of spaciousness even when you are walking or even when you are working…. …. Awareness means you know, experientially, “I am conscious”. So that’s the challenge… to bring Yoga into our daily life so that there is magic in everything we do’Swami Nishchalananda
