What is Yoga 308

Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 105 - Rough Seas

I am recovering from a night out on a small cruise ship.  It is amazing what rough waves can do to your insides :)  80% of the time I am fine on boats.  It is just when the sea gets real rough I have issues.  As I spent 3 hours turning my stomach inside out and praying for land again, I began to think how crazy this motion can send my body so out of whack. 

Today I am grateful that the earth is not swaying back and forth, it is still rotating around the sun, spinning, the sun still rises and falls, you know the simple stuff.  I sometimes forget about these things, but I am more then grateful today.

We work on balance in yoga everyday.  We just take for granted that the earth will stay in the same motion while we try to accomplish our own balance.  Shouldn't that make our lives that much more comforting and easy to try to keep our own selves in balance.  Although we sometimes think we should, we do not have to make sure the earth rotates, spins, and we are safe in the rest of the universe.  We are not the soul source making sure everyone is safe, loved, and alive.  This we live in the hands of the universe.  We worry about so many things in this world that we really have no control over.

I am grateful for the universe and the earth keeping their balance.  Keeping life around me in a balance of good and evil, love and hate, happy and sad.  I can accept these lessons around me and try to keep balance inside myself.

Have a good week :)
