Sometimes we die still without true knowledge about ourselves. Live all life in one body and don’t know how much this mind, body or soul can do and what’s kind of power we keep inside. We don’t know who we are till the moment we die and after we will reborn without knowing why we are here. Confusion, illusion and misleading towards to things without any shadow of sense. That’s why all holy people tried to go through different austerities and practice to understand what they really can and who they are by pushing their spirits though different experiences. When you learn how to hold your breath to dive till the bottom of your ocean then you will not have anymore fear to drown just snorkeling on the surface of this endless unknown water. When you learn all your bottom, how deep you are, what’s demons and creatures live inside, how big you are then you will not have fears anymore. When you don’t know who you are then your comfort zone is only surface where you are staying in a fear to go deeper and learn yourself. When you learn yourself then it’s called harmony. Happiness. Cause when you see yourself as you are then you are able to see all world as it is. It’s even can bring you directly to enlightenment. *
After the first full 12 hour day of 6.5 hours of Yoga (Asana Practice, alignment and theory, philosophy, anatomy and then a Hatha/vinyasa practise) to have Medititaion added in next week at 6am, I am exhausted but pumped for tomorrow. Never done so many #sunsalutations in my life! Such a wonderful day of learning and getting to know everyone.
The word #shoshin came to mind a lot today, when we were told to leave our ego at the door and these first few days will be starting from scratch! The beginners mind is so excited full of ideas and that's what ive tried to be today! To do each sun salutation over and over and still making corrections and still getting better and finding cleaner placements and greater flexibility after the 10th full round!
The basics are the most important foundation for any #knowledge base and to be open minded like a beginner is one of the best teachings from today as we were told many teachers get stuck in their own fixed understandings and end up over time practicing and teaching with a closed mind. You must keep your mind open so your #love , #understanding and #wisdom of yoga can continue to develop as you advance your practice and #teaching . To always respectfully come back to the basics as if for the first time with a beginers mind.
