semillas de yoga #13 - Incluir

Podemos relacionarnos con todo lo que sucede durante nuestra práctica como una oportunidad para practicar: pierdo el hilo y no sé si me toca pierna derecha o izquierda, empujo de más y me hago daño, me mareo al subir, deseo hacer lo que mi vecina puede hacer, me caigo, me da subidón lo bien que me siento en este asana, pienso en qué voy a cenar, de repente me pongo emocional y quiero llorar y no sé por qué… Todo esto no son obstáculos en nuestro camino, sino que son de lo que está hecho nuestro camino y nos ofrecen la posibilidad de ir más allá de una práctica meramente física, practicando consciencia y presencia en cualquier circunstancia. 74 more words
