it's a path to peace, beyond the asanas & stretches is a vast and testable body of knowledge
🥰 thanks Love! And Ann 😊
guessing your partner will appreciate that.
They do! Thankfully we are naturally very independent people but everyone needs spoiling sometimes. :)
yoga, esp as traditionally taught, brings many benefits to both body and mind. Grateful to those who developed and transmitted the science. Grateful that we can enjoy the benefits.
exercise, release, the breath, positivity... I would add one more strength or ability to this list: awareness. The self is aware of a simmering irritability. To name it is to tame it.
The self is aware of a simmering something. Observe that the witnessing self can experience the simmering, the arising as an object, as something outside the self. Go deeper into the self, or rather beyond it altogether to that which gives it light
Thanks Love 1, you always give a great insight and/or reflection point. Very grateful for that - I'm sure everyone appreciates it!
:) Now I'm simmering. Maybe its contagious. hehe. Bu it is lifting. Hope yours is, too.
i totally get that! i get so snappy at people when im in that mood, i feel like everyone's out to ruin the good mood
Thanks Bel H! You summed it up perfectly! Going to garden - the flowers and plants can't pull me down! Haha.
You got a good nap in at least
Haha, not a productive day, but wow what a glorious nap!
yes. I've done a few 10 day vipassana retreats. hoping to do more and longer ones. Insights are deep. Wish everyone had the chance to do one. They're positively transformative
Thanks Love 1 - will have a look into that! I definitely think it should be part of the natural cycle of working/ living.
