“Class rocked today! Yes, what an awesome class! I found myself so very present in each moment during yoga class. With Guruatma’s guidance, self example, and passionate energy, my mind did not wander to self critique nor other ego driven distractions. Passionate enthusiasm is shared and, enthusiasm is said to signify God within.
Pain has been the primary distraction in my life, as of late, resulting in such physical limitations. I have not shopped in a store in well over a year or more, because of the pain walking results in.
So today, I was gifted a newly reclaimed ability beyond all of the limitations that have become my daily existence since the accident. Today I WALKED with my grandchildren through a lovely stretch of the park – a significant amount of walking and there was little pain. I took it slow, yes. But truly, I was ABLE, and ABLE to accept whatever presented itself, whether limited or expanded.
I shared with a friend that it was the Yoga class that I attended today that brought about this transformation. Going from: any short walking resulting in feeling the deep pain of my back seeming to collapse upon itself or, my feet feeling as if I am walking on open wounds, and the tears that often followed, to: walking with relative ease and, for a meaningful distance. How blessed am I!”
