Yoga this Week – February 23, 2014

If we go with the river, the energy of a thousand mountain streams will be with us, filling our hearts with courage and enthusiasm
. If we resist the river, we will feel ranked and tired as we tread water in the same place”.

Elizabeth Lesser

Greetings dearest yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you enjoying sunshine!  Allow yourself to flow with life today.  Let go of your perceived control and try to be okay with the uncertainty that this human life is destined to experience.  Remember that the goal in life is not to achieve some kind of concrete guarantee of future outcomes,  but think of it as more of a journey  towards a relaxed attitude toward the truth;  that we really never know what the future will hold.  Pema Chodron tells us that “a real cause of suffering is not being able to tolerate uncertainly – and thinking that it’s perfectly sane, perfectly normal, to deny the fundamental groundlessness of being human”.    This “groundlessness” does not have to have a negative connotation or be something to fear.  We can walk each day with faith, do the next right thing that is in front of us and relax into the mystery.  Our life may unfold to surpass our wildest dreams if we just dare to let go of the shore and flow down that river.  It is in this forward flow that; “The energy of a thousand mountain streams will be with us, filling our hearts with courage and enthusiasm” allowing us to truly enjoy and be present for the scenery of this special day.
