LET’S DO THIS THING.
A STUDENT WROTE ME SHE WAS FEELING GUILTY ABOUT HER PRACTICE. HERE IS MY RESPONSE. “I want you to know I respect your efforts no matter how large or small they may be at any given time. And this is true no matter if I continue to correct you or if I frown, or I seem unsatisfied. It is in the nature of continuing to learn and go further into the vastness of yoga that each of us must dance a dance of being continually satisfied and dissatisfied at the same time. Guilt exists somewhere along the edges of this dance. A touch of guilt or dissatisfaction, a sense that you could do more but somehow you don’t—- examining and relating to these sorts of feelings can inspire compassion and self care within you, these feelings can invoke a more loving response from you, rather than the opposite.
A small sort of positive guilt can even play a role in your endeavoring to direct your consciousness inward for knowledge. When their tone is benevolent, these sorts of feelings can also motivate you, help you try harder, to further commit your self to what is important to you, to ask more of your self, so that you can be strong enough to meet the tough challenges that self study and spiritual maturity demand.
But also guilt can tear you down, keep you stuck, steal away your self confidence and prevent you from thoroughly enjoying the benefits of practicing.
I like how in your note you seemed mad at the guilt, as though the guilt is out of place, and often it is out of place, and needs to be checked, cut short or otherwise nullified. Part of maturing in practice is to fortify your self against such kinds of self defeating inner communications. Yoga teaches you the proper asana, stance to take in regard to such voices. Where once you listened to and believed those voices and responded in guilt and shame, now you are immune to such attacks.
You realize that there is no reason to apologize or feel like you are doing something wrong or that you can’t measure up to some grand standard. Like water sliding off the shiny feather’s of a duck’s back, you are easily and naturally impervious to such inner assailants.” #yogaguilt #ashtangayoga #ashtangateacher
Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

"When she talks, I hear the revolution. In her hips, there’s revolutions. When she walks, the revolution’s coming. In her kiss, I taste the revolution. Rebel girl, rebel girl. Rebel girl, you are the queen of my world."
Happy #forearmfriday, y’all.

August Yoga Challenge day 27: #mantra
'Om Mani Padme Hum' known as the mantra of compassion.
"Is the most widely used of all Buddhist mantras. It is open to anyone who feels inspired to practice it to develop great love and compassion. Mean that through the practice of a path that is a union of love and compassion with wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure exalted body, speech and mind of a Buddha."
My mantra - All i need is within me.
