Today practice: just moving slowly with my breath and painful body. Winter, stress, travelling, not enough movement and regularity for last 2 weeks… Everything just hurt.
Emotional ups too: my daughters exams and the feeling of being manipulated by a friend I loved and trusted.
So here I go. On my mat. FEELING a pain.ACCEPTING my limits. No, I can’t bend further. Where am I rushing ? Hold there, and come out of the pose little bit… Are you trying to impress who exactly here?
Then just sitting. Silently. And the love rush flows through my body, the chest feel warm, the tears come gently. Tears of gratitude. If I can accept my pain and my limitation, I can accept those of others. Not agree, not enable , not get dragged into it… But accept it is. We all have our limits… And our pains. And we do as we can right now.
But the responsibility of our choices is up to us, the weight of consequences is carried by us. Choose your load wisely.
