“Wisdom is the reward for surviving our own stupidity.” -Brian Rathbone
What keeps you from daring gravity? That limitation that stops you from change?
You know the thing…the recurring one that you swear you’ve handled; the thing you were convinced was resolved, only to have it show up 6 months or 3 years later? That core belief, assumption, or illusive background theme of your life, that plays itself out, over and over?
Damn! I’m going through one of those loops right now and I ask myself, ‘Seriously? Again? Isn’t it time for a new song by now?
And when I regroup, and step back from my woe-is-me-self-pity shower, I feel my breath and remember:
‘We can understand the whole practice of yoga as a process of examining our habitual attitudes and behaviors and their consequences.’ The Heart of Yoga by TKV Desikachar
Using the breath as an evolved teacher can help in the process of understanding your core beliefs. This requires the courage to go deeply into your self; your physical self, your mental self and your emotional self.
Want some yoga that guides you way beyond the physical practice and into deeper territory? I’ll be here working on my stuff, want to join me?
