Barje : A career woman and her yoga master
|I am a career woman who have practiced yoga for a few years for pretty shallow reasons -"health and beauty".|
I started private lessons 9 months ago with the only objective to learn to do the two poses I never managed to do - head stand and lotus. Never did I know then I was entering the "real" world of yoga which is not about what I can do with my body, but what I can do with my mind.
This blog is the journey of a materialistic business woman who begins to discover the world of yoga from her spiritual, calm, and disciplined yoga master.
|13.01.12 Each day lived well equals a life lived well|
| New Year time, resolution time. I would like to take one of my yoga master's motto as my resolution for this year - "Each day lived well equals a life lived well". So I asked master what is a day lived well to him, he said for him it is feeling enlightened, positive, and fulfilled. To make it easier for myself, I think I will start with "each moment lived well equals a day lived well."|
I think the feelings of enlightenment, positivity, and fulfillment are there in my everyday life too, but am I "in the moment" to notice it and enjoy it? I believe not too often. So I have to start reminding myself to live "in the moment" to feel enlightened, positive, and fulfilled. Whenever the feeling is there, I don't want to miss it only because I'm "not there".
Life unfolds in the present. But so often, we let the present slip away. I have let too many present moments slipped away in the past, and my resolution for this year is to learn to "be present". I will try to live each moment well which leads to a day well lived and leads to a year well lived and eventually leads to a life well lived.
What is your New Year Resolution?
|Hi Barje, why I only feel positive when practising yoga? I only got approx. an hour and a half or two hours a day feeling/living "in the moment" ?|

|An hour or so of mindfulness is a good start. From there we can add on "mindful" walking, "mindful" eating, "mindful" showering.......|
