Sometimes its the same lesson over and over again, with different characters. Do you ever find this? The lesson probably changes slightly, the characters assume different genders, but its often the same lesson.
Its the lesson of change. Yes, it sounds pretty simple, its just 6 letters. But its really enormous in scope. But I've learned it doesn't need to be. Some of you reading this may know this.
This is how change CAN look:
Just do it.
Don't think it, just do it (kinda same as above).
40 day programs.
Here's my simple radical learning for change, from Kelly Sunrose, Sunrose Yoga...... drum roll:
Start where you are.
We don't need to overhaul and reinvent our life, because our life so far is what we have consciously (or unconsciously) created. Perhaps we can:
1) Bring awareness to our lives, walk around your home, look around, with soft eyes.
2) Look at where we are in our life; age, responsibilities, duty, physical ability.
3) Start where we are with some slow, sustainable & steady change.
Same goes on the mat.
We bring awareness to our poses, to our breath and to our hearts. We feel into where we are on the mat, in the poses, breath & hearts and then we perhaps consider the outcomes and the benefits that this practice of Yoga brings us.
Just something to chew on, with mindfulness!! LOL
