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 129 - Quick Karma note

I spent tonight gathering myself.  I stopped and did a gentle yoga class for myself at home.  It was really more of a gentle stretch in postures that felt right with me.  I also followed with a lot of deep breathing and meditation.

Today was a crazy day.  It was a day filled with roller coasters.  I was a spectator that saw both the highs of life and a reminder on how life can quickly be taken from you.  Life is filled with our ups and our downs.  I am determined to try to find an appreciation for all of these aspects in life.  I would like to learn how to accept that there will always be happiness as well sadness in my life.

I have noticed a lot of people throwing the word "karma" out into the world in the last week.  The typical use is something like "Karma is a bitch."  I have noticed on several occasions that people are using karma as a way to tell someone else that they will regret their decision.  That this decision will come back to haunt them in some manner.   I watch as people believe they deserve the best, so they use karma as an excuse to make them feel better.  They state something like "That person deserves something bad to them."  We need to step back and stop these karma threats.

Karma is a great tool to help us all grow.  I feel like I personally need to open my heart more and allow others to grow without any jealousy, resentment, or greed.  I need to believe in Karama.  That if I stick onto a good path I will stay on this path.  When I fall into a bad path then it is something I am paying for some other past life experience, or it is something I am going to use as a stepping stone to help me grow.  I can only live the one life I live.
