Yoga this Week – January 28, 2018

“Life is a Learning Curve” is the quote my 19 year old snowboarding, drumming, stay-up-all-niter college freshman decided to get tattooed on his inner forearm next to the autism puzzle piece in honor of his older brothers journey navigating life on the spectrum.

Image may contain: one or more people and closeup

These days we have a habit of saying that quote often when we come up against something new, hard, difficult, exciting or confusing. Life IS a learning curve. Do we ever stop learning? Transitions, pain, sorrow, winning, defeat, even success all have a learning curve at their core and what make up a growing life.  After all, wouldn’t the drive just be a tedious ride if all the roads were straight? It really are those curves that drive us forward, empowering and creating empathy, compassion and resilience as we tackle each one.   Like waves on the ocean the learning will keep rolling in. Some of the waves will be easy,  rolling gently and slowly onto the shore and some will crash us right from behind and slam us down on our backs. It’s all a learning, a moving forward, through and back and forth again.   Whenever you hear that inner critic or that debilitating fear rise up” that tells you “you can’t handle this” try and repeat the mantra “Life is a Learning Curve” ; tattoo it on your arm if you need to and remind yourself you are not supposed to have all the answers and that learning is gives your life meaning your your heart a chance soar.

Yoga this Week – December 23, 2013

 

I hope you are finding time to truly feel the precious moments in your life as they pass.  As we come into this last week of the year, take time to reflect with compassion on all the places you have been.  Reflect on those things that remained the same and the things that have changed; within you and around you.   Allow yourself some quiet time to go within and connect to the silence amidst the rush of comings and goings.  Thank you to all the beautiful yogi goddesses that filled the room on Winter Solstice night!  It was so heart warming to hear all of your intentions and watch you all connect to each other as a spiritual community!!

  I wish for you all a happy, healthy, joy filled holiday season!

A deep bow of gratitude from me to you, Sat Nam.

“All you need is love.  The Beatles said it, and the Bible said it, and every wise saint who has ever spoken has sad it….Sure, there are other great things in life:  knowledge, and power, and spiritual understanding.  “But these shall pass away” (Paul writes in the New Testament).  “Where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away…And these shall remain:  Faith, Hope, and Love.  But the greatest of these is Love”

Elizabeth Lesser from “Broken Open”

hart trea

Amidst the comings and goings and rush of the Holiday Season, take time to remember what is truly important.  It is love that binds us to our family, not blood.  It is Love that connects us to our community, not just geography.  It is Love that connects us to our true essence, not intellectual knowledge.  Become aware of any tendency to create that picture perfect holiday, the one we see in media or read about in books.  Open your heart, feel into that everlasting quality of love that surrounds you and is inside you.    As effortlessly as the snow falls from the sky and returns once again to its source,  allow your love to flow and float knowing that truly “Love is All You Need”.

True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new!

 Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Greetings dear yoga students,

One of my beloved teachers, Rolf Gates, once said to us, “Don’t allow your duties to become your burdens”.  This saying has always stuck with me.  Within the daily round of doing, taking care of, maintaining and getting things done, we can sometimes feel very burdened.  While completing our yearly ritual today of making and jarring up our tomato sauce, this quote hovered over me like the fine sunshine that was streaming down from the sky.  “Don’t allow your duties to become your burdens”.  The hard work we put in today pleasures us all year long; when we open a jar in mid-winter, when we give some to someone having hard times or when we simply share a meal with family and friends.  Doing something once a year creates a specialness, an excitement and my husband and I usually feel a “zest in creating” it (until right about now, when we are ready to collapse).  But, it is in our daily duties that we also need to find that joy for a job well done  .  Whatever your  duties consist of this week, try to look at them with a fresh attitude.  If your duties are really become your burdens, try to change the way you do them, creating an atmosphere that promotes happiness or give yourself a special reward for completing the task.  If your duties still seem heavy to carry, simply look back at the end of the week and find true happiness knowing your deeds were well done to the best of your ability with an intention of love and service for all.

The reward of a thing well done, is having done it.

Emerson
