“The world as we have created it, is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
― Albert Einstein
Summer is sliding to a close, bringing the shift into Autumn. I love witnessing the beautiful bloom of fall colors in the trees, the slow drift of leaves, and the hint of crispness in the air. It truly is my favorite time of the year. Fall always helps me reconnect with the practice of working with change, and the art of letting go.
“Change has long been a fearful thing for human beings…and at the same time, it is our most Divine opportunity. Clinging to the banks of the river may seem safe and more secure, but life’s possibilities are truly engaged only when we trust, release, and become part of the Flow of the Universe.” –Chelle Thompson
There exists a radical release of suffering when we free ourselves of attachment and the need to control all that we have, or think we need. Expectations are like leaves. Let them drop. Live as though this moment is exactly enough.
This month brings us an asana practice rooted in prana, the flow of breath. We are moved by breath–flowing, pausing, letting go, resting our awareness in the rhythmic inflow and outflow of prana. Aware that this breath, this moment, this shape, this sensation is perfect, and exactly enough, just as it is.
See you on the mat!
