Oh Happy Earth Day! May we remember the importance of this land, these trees, these flowers, these animals, these humans. To all those Earthlings out there... I love you

One of these guys is really, really happy

How we practice is how we live.
*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Are we really there, in that posture, or are we off at lunch or back in a stressful conversation we had earlier?
.

When my attention in an asana is focused, my day tends to be focused. When my awareness and mind is scattered, so too is the experience of my life.
.

In this way the practice is very much a mirror. The trick is stepping back and noticing, instead of judging, trying to change or fix the pose or the mind.
.

Most days my practice feels strong, clear and integrated, and so my mind and heart follow. However, sometimes the wavering, questioning, lost, judgmental, confused human mind and heart pops in and messes everything up. I try my best not to get caught in this narrative and get pulled down the rabbit hole... but sometimes I question everything. The next day things tend to return to "normal" and I begin again.
.
So remain cognizant of the way you practice yoga and life, without judgment, but with deep compassion for yourself, a "flawed and fabulous" human.

"When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be." - Patanjali ~*~*~*~*~*~*~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^

"Don't wait to start living. Live now! Your life should be real in this very moment...You can live every moment of every day deeply, in touch with the wonders of life . Then you will learn to live, and, at the same time, learn to die." -Thich Nhat Hanh

Hey there. I am a tree. As you can see, I have many scars, scratches, bumps, bruises and all sorts of imperfections. And that's ok, I think. I've been around for many years. Some folks love me, others probably even hate me and think I'm ugly, but most people hardly even notice me. Some people stop and touch my skin, hold me, sit with me and remind me that I am beautiful, seen and even loved. I stay strong and tall amidst the sun, rain, storm and even snow! The humans might call me "equanimous," or even "deep." Despite my roots, I still get frustrated sometimes and become annoyed when people try to chop me (or my friends) down, but holy heck are my roots deep, baby! I am intertwined with all of my neighbors up and down this street-- and all streets--and all life above and below the ground. I am part of this. I am a piece of the whole, and you are too. So, if you would, when you see me or any of my family (that's all beings!), would you pretty please be kind? Thank you. I love you. ~ A Tree. #tree
