On Shyness

I've been thinking about another thing I wrote in last Thursday's tipandtrick about feeling shy. And I did a little in that moment, talking to the lady who ended up looking to her phone. But ever since I read Yoga and Vegetarianism, one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS, the shyness thing melts away more often than not.

"I have observed over my years of teaching yoga that many students are quite shy when it comes to speaking in public, let alone singing or chanting mantras. Shyness could be seen as a form of vanity because it exists when we are thinking of ourselves and our feelings and not the feelings of the people in front of us. It lacks sympathy and comes from a deep self-consciousness and self absorption, which stems from feeling separate." You tell us, Sharon Gannon.
