I saw a billboard sign last night that read, "Isn't this the perfect time to write on this sign?"
It wasn't a brilliantly worded slogan to sell the space but the message seemed clear to me; what are we all waiting for?! Isn't this the perfect time to write on your billboard of life? What have you always wanted to say or do or accomplish? Why haven't you? Is today your day??? Think about it...what is the real reason holding you back?
"People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel that they don't deserve them, or that they'll be unable to achieve them." The Alchemist
Fear is a crazy thing. It is a mentally created energy that has the power to stop us in our very own path. Fears' intention is limiting. Recognize it as maya (sanskrit for illusion) and be done with it.
In class today, we played around with Bakasana (Crow pose) to see how we can use our yoga to handle fear. In Crow, all our weight is balanced on our two hands while everything else is off the floor. It can be scary! What if we fall forward right on our face? What if???
Take out a piece of paper right now and write your billboard message for "all" to see (well, maybe just you!). Are you ready to get started on accomplishing or even simply taking the very first step towards whatever it is you wrote down? Release the fear; live from love. Get writing.
