Having the physical ability to do extraordinary feats and the mental ability for Jedi-like mental states called siddhis (telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and levitation as described in the Yoga Sutras) is fun. That said, many Yogis get distracted and caught up in these states once they experience such phenomenons. The ego which we Yogis progressively disengage from, finds yet another opening to slip in and take control.
While these parlor tricks can be used to get other people's attention, we must remind ourselves what in Yoga we are ultimately drawing our attention to. The goal of transcendence, complete union, totality, and oneness with all…and the experience of life as we continue to progress.
