Going through my weekly classes, I come across so many different types of yogi's on the mat and often the ones that are hard on themselves when not being able to achieve what is set in their mind. My aging body speaks up to me everyday, telling me where my physical boundaries are. Because of that, my practice has turned into so much more than achieving a physical goal but opening up to be a good listener to my body, and to be my own best friend to my thoughts and feelings. Maybe the final destination is beyond the perfect posture, the most flexible pose, but another dimension that is awaiting to be unlocked from within. Here a short story with a wonderful message.
A frog lived in a well and had nothing else. One day, a sea turtle came into the well and told her about the sea. ‘The sea? Hah! It’s paradise in here. Nothing can be better than this well. Why don’t you come down and share my joy? The tortoise tried to reach the frog at the bottom of the well, but the mouth of the well was too narrow. ‘Why don’t you go see the sea instead? china-underground.com; toddherman.me
Whenever you are in a funk, look out for the turtle in your life, offering you another possibility to get out of your well. Maybe there is a paradise that is beyond what you expected.
