Hello world. Or hello private journal. It’s been a long while.
I’ve been absorbed by life.
I moved from Canada to Australia (again). From a busy city, to a coastal town. I have been a little distracted!
Yoga is still guiding my life. But I admit that there is more to me, than just yoga, or just art, or just any one thing. Because every animal, every plant, every thing is made up of more than one component. Similarly, yoga is more than just asana. Pranayama has seeped into me more than the physical postures. Although pranayama is within the physical yoga postures. Life is immersion, not division. One thing leads to another.
I find yoga in the ocean, as an artist finds art in sand, a scientist finds an equation in the jungle. Art led me to yoga and yoga leads me back to art.
With the new year, I accept that we cannot control life, but be guided by life. How much control do you have? How much do you release? What do you hold on to, and what do you let free? Are you holding onto what you need, and freeing what harms you?
