Blessed are the flexible,
for they shall not be
bent out of shape.
Yoga is not just a physical workout, but it’s working on yourself from the inside out. Helping us to remember what’s inside of us – our beauty, our strengths, our divine uniqueness. We learn to bend, so we don’t break. Flowing with the direction of the current, riding it out, and seeing what the universe bring’s across our path. Noticing without judgement. We learn to not take things personally. To listen from within, finding our truth, our guidance. We learn to speak and live this truth, in a kind way – Finding our strength and our peace.
Just a thought,
We bend so that we don’t break. In yoga we do counterposes to balance out our bodies. If we twist to the right, we twist to the left. If we bend forward, we counter with bending backward. Most of us live busy lifestyles, we give to our work, our bosses, employees, or customers. At home we give to our families, parents, children, spouses, siblings, and friends. Some of us also try to remain happy and positive, by exuding joyfulness to the strangers we meet along the way. We bend so far one way however, we sometimes forget our most important self.
So remember to do your counterposes, bend the other way by taking care of you! Give to yourself so that you can continue to give to others. Fill yourself up with joy, and gratitude for all that you have. Feed your mind by reading, seeing, and feeling happy thoughts; and in your body by exercising and eating right. Stay completely healthy for yourself first, and for those around you. It’s the most unselfish thing you can do – taking care of you.
