Not reacting, but assessing a situation and then… making a measured response. Or choosing not to respond at all.
We don’t need to take the bait.
We don’t need to attend every argument we are invited to.
We don’t need to finish everything we started if it no longer resonates with our soul’s intention.
We don’t need to people please.
We don’t need to explain ourselves.
You know in your gut when someone is inauthentic. Don’t talk yourself out of knowing it.
In yoga, if what the teacher is suggesting doesn’t make sense for your body, you don’t have to do it. Maybe you make an adjustment.
Variations of each pose exist. One is not better than another.
Moving the hips higher, or the feet back a smidge might make it better. Might make it worse. Take some pressure off the wrists. Activate your thighs. It’s okay to explore. To be present and discerning in each pose. And in each transition.
Your teacher will guide you, but you are the boss.
What feels right? In this moment.
What do I need right now? More? Less?
What about now?
Stillness is the key.
You know what to do.
This breath in.
This breath out.

2 thoughts on “Discernment”
You write with such wisdom and gentleness and manage even via zoom to create the yoga space I need to feel like I am doing my thing but am in alignment with what you suggest. Continues thank You’s!
Such wise advice, and I needed it all!
