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 203 - Old dog with no fear

Marianne and I are still exploring Sedona, AZ.  Today we climbed Cathedral Rock.  My 9 year old lab Orion climbed with us.  It was really fun to watch my dog climb a mountain again.  He was nervous in some places and tried to figure out how to scale the rock to stay with us.  He cried at times and was super excited other times.  Nothing stopped him though.  He was determined to climb the mountain with us.

There is a lot of things we can learn from nature and animals.  We all get excited, we all worry, we all cry, and we all have the option to climb the mountain or stay on the base waiting to get fed :) .  Which ever way you choose, we all our living our lives.  I feel when you climb the mountain and see the view from the top there is nothing like it.  An old dog still has the spunk, energy, and excitement to climb up the mountain.  I was inspired and proud today.

Sedona is a very holistic and a healing place.  People here are very positive.  Typically when I see people who are extremely positive I start to wonder.  They seem to be pushing this positivity so much that they are hiding from something.  Life is full of both negative and postive energy.  I think we need to aknowledge both and not hide from either.  Do not build communities with hopes of becoming completely positive.  When we do this we are surprised when the negative hits us.  At the same time do not push your positive beliefs onto others.  Let people grow at their own speed.

I heard someone say today that "He loved Sedona, everyone here is at a higher consciousness."  Anyone who would ever say this is in fact lowering their consciousness.  We cannot ever say we are better then someone else or higher then anyone else.  This comment alone belittles us as humans. 

I am not looking to push my beliefs onto people.  My goal with yoga308.com is to stay honest and express my opinions.  I am not here to tell others what to do.  Keep life simple, honest, and real.

There is a lot of good things happening here.  I do feel very good and positive.
