How many times have you said "I will," "I'm going to," "Soon I'll," etc.? How many times have you failed to follow through on those intentions? A famous quote that I often call upon when life frustrates me is "the only consistent thing about life is change." Our Yoga practice is all about changing. We have to be willing to create and allow change to occur.
As part of our practice of Yoga we meditate. We take the time to sit and, maybe, find silence within. For some of us the chatter can seem overwhelming and it can feel as though we will never ever find silence. I'm sure you're thinking right now, "what does she know, she teaches Yoga." Feel free to jump inside my head one day, I assure you that running a Yoga studio and working at a school does not increase my inner silence. But, my efforts have shown considerable progress.
This month, as we focus on listening for our most heartfelt desire, our deepest intention, I encourage you to practice mediation. We need to be able to listen to ourselves. We need to hear our own hearts and spirits. We need to kick out the ego and the judgment and the voices of others. Take the time to listen to what's within you. You may find that change is not so hard to take.
