"I understand that the attachment to myself and my image...was actually taking me away from my self, from this wonderful opportunity to just sit, just breathe, just feel the warm animal of my body, just feel the soft, sultry heat of June. The density of my attachment was making it impossible for me to have a truly satisfying experience of life in my body just as it was in the moment. When under the sway of this obsession, my mind's attention was always in the fantasized future, or the idealized or devalued past -- never present to the reality of the moment."

~Stephen Cope, Yoga and the Quest for the True Self
