You are not what you do. You are not what you don’t do.
You are not the job title. You are not a labeled societal sub group.
You are not your personality;
You are not a happy person, a depressed person or an angry person.
You are not a definition of your own qualities.
Who are you?
Lately it’s been less about letting go, and more about learning and integration.
And by it I mean life, yoga and the self. It’s really all the same.
But I was missing the most vital and necessary ingredient in my own process. Along the way, I totally forgot about the most important thing we must always have along side us when we do any sort of self work.
When people hear I teach yoga I often get responses such as:
“I’m so bad at yoga.”
“I’m not flexible enough to do yoga.”
“I would love to come to class, but I can’t touch my toes.” After getting these types of responses, more than usual lately, there is something I would really like to share.
May we all speak our truth, even if our voice shakes. May we all fearlessly and unapologetically live out our visions, our dreams and our truths. May we welcome and encourage our brothers and sisters, our global family, to do the same. For if we don’t, we’re letting ourselves and each other die, before we ever really feel alive
From the job that we have and the lifestyle we live, to the people we hang out with, why are we doing it? Is it what we actually want to be doing? Or is it what we think we should be doing?
We have to be willing to give it all up.
How we think it’s supposed to look. How we think it’s supposed be.
And instead, continuously come back to how it feels.
There is an immediate and radical shift in our lives that occurs the moment we decide to step out of fear and into a place of authenticity. When we stop letting our inner critic dictate what we say and do.
