Perspective is such a useful tool. It just takes some bending to change it. Thats what I learned in yoga today. I flipped my dog and turned my frown upside down! Its not easy to change perspective. I struggle with this often especially in my relationship with Jaymon. We are both quite intense people and although we are perfect for each other in many ways it takes work to make it work.
I do believe, after testing it out many times, that there are ways to trigger a perspective change and one of them is to get upside down. It just seems to happen. It sets the wheels in motion. And its fun!
In the theme of detoxing and cleansing, I find that it detoxes and cleanses my mind.
This is yesterdays pose of the day. Bharadvajasana or the pose dedicated to the sage Bharadvaga. Its a deep and challenging twist. In my minds eye I can reach around and grab my foot that is in (wonky) lotus position. For now in reality I can't.
Its interesting how there are some poses that I imagine myself doing and yet am scared to try only to find out when I do try that they are something that comes naturally to me while others are ones that I envision and I am surprised at how uncooperative my body is to move that way. I never really know which is which.
Tomorrow is all about swim lessons for my little Milo and getting caught up on some computer stuff AND staying in the moment. Keeping my perspective from the inside looking out instead of watching my life unfold like a movie. Namaste.
