As with any recovery, its important to recognize the behavior we want to correct as its happening. So I catch myself becoming disproportionately dissatisfied with a wobbly ardha chandrasana or a toppling titibasana. I stop and breathe and remind myself that my inner spark of divine light is pure and unwavering, even when my postures or life circumstances are not.
-- Excerpt from Discover Your Sacred Self on MyYogaOnline.com by Alisha Vasquez
I joined MyYogaOnline this month to see what it would be like taking online yoga classes from a variety of teachers all over the world. I regularly get a newsletter from the site with links to videos and articles.
This morning I clicked on "Discover your Sacred Self" by Alisha Vasquez and was profoundly hit smack dab in the gobstopper by the quote above. I've wobbled a lot lately and I'm just working on surrendering.
See, I prefer to be in control of my destiny and situations and am gifted with the ability to see the bigger picture (when I don't get in my own way) and am a change agent like a Mary Poppins of a sort.
