“Shall I tell you what I find beautiful about you? You are at your very best when things are worst” Starman
Utkatasana (chair pose) exemplifies the amazing ability of the human spirit to rise up and find the strength, grace and power we didn’t even know we had. We have all had experiences where the bottom seems to fall out from underneath our life; a devastating phone call comes or some unexpected turn of events sends life into a tailspin. It is at precisely these times, when help seems to come out of nowhere; people organize themselves to help, families let go of their differences to work together for the common goal, friends come from all directions. It is at our worst, that we become our very best.
If you have a moment today, take chair pose for a few breaths. Breathe into the grounding at your feet, feel how your heart lifts and your hands reach up toward the sky. Embodying this powerful pose allows us to experience our own power and also the source of power around us that enables us to lift ourselves up and bask in the light and love that is always there. Thich Nhat Hahn says “No Mud, No Lotus” which means that we must go through the dark, the struggles, the sticky stuff to reveal our true beauty. In the depths of the winter, dig deep and reach high. Spring is surely on its way and we await its coming with joy, strength and resolve.
