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 201 - Travel on.

In Moab on the way to Arizona.

Well, on to day 201.  What perfect timing, because I am packing my bags and heading down south to check out Sedona, Arizona with Marianne.  I am still very proud.  After yesterday, actually putting out to the world that I am proud of myself there seemed to be a big weight lifted off my shoulders.  Maybe I am just on a high, but I feel much more focused on where I am.  I feel much more alert on what I am doing.  I am not as clouded as I have been in the past.  I do not feel the need to get sooo much done.  I feel more relaxed.

Life is good and I am striving to be as a good as a person as I can.  I accept my imperfections and have my entire life and then lifetimes after that to continue to strive for a pure love, compassion, and peace.  In the mean time I am me.  I accept who I am now and I am proud of what I have done.

I have spent my first 37 years building up dreams, illusions, and ideas.  These things that we are supposed to do in our life (go to school, get a job, make a lot of money, get married).  I did this.  I am self sustaining.  Now what?  I almost feel like I should spend the next 37 years moving backwards.  Dissect the reasoning behind why I did all this in the first place.

I almost feel like my life has been a video game.  I am always driving to the next level.  I want to build up as many points as possible and use them when appropriate.  I feel stuck on a level, but I now need to go back and try a bunch of different strategies to get unstuck.  I realize now that I am happy I am on level 37 and I kind of want to jump around the previous levels for awhile and glimpse some of the things that I missed.  Understand the game a little better.

I took the day off today for the long haul to Sedona.  I will be finding some new yoga in Sedona tomorrow.
