The world is as you see it...
So said Steve Ross (Maha Yoga) during our teacher training class today and after he destroyed us with almost 2 hours of Yin Yoga. In Yin you hold the poses for about 3 to 5 minutes, though advanced practitioners can hold them much longer. It hurts but your body opens up (the what? I can't remember...meridians....?) and stress is dissolved. With a little passive pain comes a lot of good.
But back to the message.
The world is as you see it. So you might as well see it as a happy and positive place and radiate that energy outward (we get what we give). One day Steve bought a pair of rose colored glasses to class and they brought smiles to the faces of those who tried them on.
I've been dealing with anger lately...but as I do so I'm finding that I am letting it go. And, fyi, some believe that anger is stored in the hips.
