This week in my yoga class
Heidi's theme was yes and no
and how these two words have great power
in our lives.
What we say "yes" to,
what we say "no" to...
(how we do want to say yes - yes being the yes word)
but how saying "no" can often support
the greater "yes" in our lives.
This dynamic tension of yes and no
speaks deeply to me - I who love contrast...
and surely this play of shadow and light
will dance in my psyche for awhile.
But beyond the cerebral concept
of yes and no - she taught us how
in our bodies we can create a safe "no" boundary
which allows for a deepening into the "yes"
of any yogic posture.
I am loving the grounding of this sound concept
into the body - bringing it all home
and into the physical temple - feeling it,
and attempting to express it
in the journal...
