"Old age, mental old age, and spiritual instability often beset us because we do not stretch ourselves when we get up. Stiffness in the body is not the way. It can make the body old and brittle even at a young age and it can make the mind's mischief intolerable to the point of insanity at any age." Yogi Bhajan What is he saying by minds mischief to the point of insanity"

Sat Nam,

Let's just say that whenever Y.B. says "insanity" or "insane" it's synonymous with "crazy" or "out of control". If you just sit there all cramped up and hunched over, you will start to feel desperate, and think you're going crazy because the mind will just shoot random thoughts at you. When you stretch, it feels like sweet, cold water is being poured throughout your body and your focus returns.

You seem to ask this question a lot. Surely you must've had this experience, where you can't stop thinking and can't concentrate on what you are doing!

God bless you.

Dear Meet,

I think it means in our daily lives now days we sit a lot, encounter a lot of stress, don't exercise much or practice yoga daily; as a result, the body becomes tense and rigid, over time energy starts becoming blocked and can create physical and mental diseases. The body needs to be kept healthy with exercises and/or Yoga, it refreshes not only the body but also the mind.

Hope this helps. -Namastwang Akaale, Namastwang Kirpaale!
