One of many resolutions
I am trying to create in my life is giving up the hurry
Life is filled
with countless lost moments. Sometimes the ordinary can
seem to deprive us of purpose and consequently of identity.
Slowing down can be boring when we are so used to moving
from one activity to another.
Are you addicted to intensity?? If you examine your life,
you’ll probably find that you are far more attentive
to the dramatic and intense experiences that present themselves
than to the moments when nothing seems to be happening,
according to Christina Feldman a writer for the Yoga Journal.
Success, excitement, love and happiness are feelings you
no doubt welcome and heroically pursue. Pain and sorrow
generally inspires a heroism all their own as we often times
strive to avoid or resist anything that might cause such
To experience non-doing-to simply observe life instead of
clinging to its most outrageous ups and downs- appears at
first deeply uncomfortable at best.
Your life as well as mine has plenty of ordinary moments,
sitting while waiting for the school bus, shopping preparing
dinner, answering the telephone, and just walking from one
destination to another. We have a tendency to disconnect
from ourselves during these moments. Dismissing the ordinary
as boring lacking in richness, intensity, and completeness.
Most of us are accustomed to externalizing happiness and
vitality, often times detecting an inner unease or just
plain unhappy in the midst of any moment that is neither
dramatic nor intense.
The truth is DELIGHT is within reach, come to a Yoga class
and begin to discover the joy of the moment.
