Good food 
after an insightful yogic lecture.  
Breathing in, I am grateful for my food. Breathing out...i am about to eat this shit UP!

From "Zen Keys"

Seeing into one's own nature is not the fruit of study or research.  It is a profound insight derived from living in the heart of reality, in perfect mindfulness.  There is no enlightenment outside of daily life.  -Thich Nhat Hahn

It's cold here this morning.  Someday I will live in a place that is never cold.  For now, I am learning not to judge "cold" as "bad".  :)

Up And At 'Em

One nice thing about even semi-consistently blogging is that I can start to see patterns.  Recently I notice I have been feeling my practices slipping as far as length and regularity.  Since that doesn't align with my goals, now that I am aware of that imbalance I can take action to bring my habits more toward what I do want.  So today, up early!  Let's do this!  #motivated

Emotional Weather

Feeling crabby,
Needed to take personal time first,
But I mysteriously declined the chance.
Now I am most of the way through 
Quiet time, renewal practices,
but I can still feel the morning gunk
lingering on my inner landscape.
Now a little more space, easing up.
Still, I resist meditation.

Every day I get on my mat with intention and breath, my personal power becomes  more real to me.

Slacking Happens

So, I have been slacking.  Not only in my blog writing but in my homework as well. I was really on it and then my partner got sick.  And then friends keep coming over to hang out.  Also my schedule ia so busy that in the evening I "just want to relax".  All I have to say about this recent trend is that it is officially over.  Slacking happens.  It is human to fluctuate in dedication.  Here comes mine, roaring back to the top.  Day One again.

Time Rolls On

Second training weekend done.  Being there is such a sweet retreat yoga-bubble with nothing to consider but my learning and practice.  It felt exhilarating. Refreshing.  Transitioning back into my regularly scheduled programming is a bit bumpy, but still I notice things I have gained that sustain my ability to be centered.  Its a fairly new mental/emotional muscle but I feel it growing.
