DAY 223: “YOGA IS THE PRACTICE OF TOLERATING THE CONSEQUENCES OF BEING YOURSELF.”

I am strapping myself in for one hell of a ride, and after the first week it has been compelling, discombobulating and full of the kind of dips and freakish turns that I imagine must be part of a roller coaster experience. Kripalu has not disappointed. And I am changing; and doing really well, and have some tender moments and experiences that form the foundation of my first week here that have revealed themselves to be something like the glimmer between my inhale and exhale.

I am refining and nuancing my true authentic self and here’s how it has presented itself so far:

  • I’m  cool with it, even though, honestly, I arrived last week and thought I was just going to travel way above the fray on the self-work journey; kind of a been there done that attitude. It’s happening anyway and I’m just going to go with it.
  • Trust! I live in trust that all that unfurls from this experience will continue to reveal to me all that I have ever dreamed to be, that I already am.
  • Sometimes, mostly the unrelenting 5am, which is way out of my comfort zone, it just feels like f*cking hard work; brandishing a wayward gesture at the vanishing moon as I whip up Route 183.
  • I don’t need to know any of the reasons why, the hows, the what might becomes. I just need to purely stand still in the moment and bear witness to all that reveals. Quietly, Serenely and Completely; formidable invitation!

Week 2 begins tomorrow: WHOOSH!

 

 

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
