METAMORPHOSIS - ep. 16 - I Am Present. #30Letters from #yogacamp miniseries

Our minds are always fighting between remembering the past and planning the future. The present is merely a time when we do these things and regret or get anxious / stressed about what is to come.

Living in awareness of the present moment is important. It connects mind and body and makes us more in tune with what’s happening with those two in our lives. When we’re not aware, we eat compulsively, we think of other things when people talk to us, or plan the next big project / deadline when we’re on vacation or with a loved one.

Being aware is not some New Age fairy tale that advises us to dream of flowers and pink rainbows. It’s the best way to get more things done in a shorter amount of time, because we are more focused. It’s the best way of increasing our relationships by really being there in the moment, conscious of what we’re saying, feeling and sensing. It’s the best way to maintain health, as we sense when our bodies are full and we don’t overeat or stuff our guts mindlessly. We get more out of our exercise because we’re doing it 100%, not thinking of other stuff.

That’s what we find to be so hard at yoga: aligning the mind to the body. Being aware of our bodily sensations and the emotions that come with them. Through the stretches, our minds want to quit, but get silenced by the body, who gets stronger and goes stronger and lightly through the poses, proving the mind that we are strong and capable.

The sensations feel good, even those that strain us. We go through them. One can get through hardship if only one has patience, acceptance and lives the moment.

Choose to be present and aware. Continue forward.

Here’s the routine I’m referring to. Day 9 of 30 days of #yogacamp: I Am Present. Enjoy!
