Go With The Flow

Standard

Every time I walk into a yoga class I learn something new. Today was no exception. Some things are clearly obvious but I believe we discover things when the time is right. Today we were stretching. I am not very flexible. I often dread it and struggle through it until it is time to lie back at the end of class and take that last few minutes to just relax. But today, when I reached that point that got uncomfortable, I breathed into the tightness, and somehow my muscles magically relaxed. The more I breathed and focused on the area, the more natural it became for me to go further and further.

The lesson is simple, fight the world and the world will fight you back. Resist and you will face more resistance. But choose to relax and breath and be in the moment, instead of struggling against it, and you will find greater flexibility and a deeper sense of peace. It seems simple I know, but I have spent several useless hours fighting my experiences and how has that worked out? I bet you can guess.

My new plan is to go out and embrace life, all of it, just as it is and accept each new day, experience and circumstance as it arrives. What you resist will persist. We’ve all heard that right? Go with the flow and events fall naturally into place. So throw away those boxing gloves and trade them in for a comfortable pair of yoga pants. I promise you won’t regret it.

Stop fighting and start living.
