I am going to try and word this ever so carefully. Please know that I don’t mean to offend or in any way demean your beliefs, even if you’re wrong.
So the other day I was hopping around on Xanga and I saw a blog about Yoga. Not one of my normal subs, but you know I love my yoga so I clicked to see what she had to say. The blogger was talking about how happy she was that she had finally tried Yoga. So far, so good. Then she said she waited so many years because of her religious teachings. She had to wait until she was disgrunted with her religion and no longer following it’s tenents. In her church she has always been taught that Yoga was a gateway for allowing demonic spirits into you. If this wasn’t startling enough, I read her comments and people were agreeing with this teaching. They were happy that she had survived her first month of yoga without demonic possession.
Today I Googled.
I really and truly do not understand how a person believes something like this. I think I am very open minded, and I think I am also very empathic, but I cannot fathom this.
Watch out for hairy palms!
