When you are caught up — in anything — you’ve made the situation about you. You are behind. You are misunderstood. You are snagged by something. Reversing this ego-forward state helps you regain neutrality.
I work a lot with my clients, as well as myself, on the idea of remaining neutral within. Being neutral releases me from the prison of comparison, tussles of misunderstanding, and the harshness assumptions invite into life.
Once I have perspective, most likely on my own assumptions, I can attempt a softer focus and a gentler approach–to everything. This allows me to relax.
The only way forward is through. And, it is hard.
/This post-series is about trying to anchor my experience by exploring within and reminding myself about what it means to practice “good humaning.” It’s about moving forward imperfectly. To follow this thread in my posts, look for these tags: #NotesFromMyYogaJournal
