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 330 - What if there was no fear in our life?


I did yoga at home today.

I have been on a kick lately of looking at ways to drop our fears.  Our fears are our biggest blocks from allowing us to truly live our life.  There are obvious fears like a fear of snakes or a fear of doing a double back flip on a snowboard.  These fears are obvious how we can confront them.  There are other sometimes not so obvious fears in our lives.  Maybe it's a fear to express an emotion, a few to tell someone the truth, or the fear of upsetting someone.

Some of these fears we do not even know we have.  We have lived our entire life with these fears so they may not even appear to us as a fear.  We may even find some comfort in these fears.

I know people that I used to look at and think they have no fear.  They do things like walk right up to a girl and ask them out, drink without a care in their life, or drive a car at high speeds.  What we do not see is the underlining fears.  The fear of commitment, the fear of living a healthy and good life, or the fear of others thinking they were soft.  We all have fears.  I am realizing more everyday that it is important to face our fears.  The less fears we have in our life the more room we have for other emotions.

What if we had no fear in our life?  Then what?  This is when your morals come in.  If you are an asshole when you feared life, when you drop all of these fears you will still be an asshole.  However, when we drop these fears and make room for new emotions you can become whoever you want.  You can make this slow switch towards someone you inspire to be.

I would like to someday be blessed to find enlightenment.  The reality though is I have sooooo much work to go through.  It will not happen in this life time.  Luckily I believe in reincarnation so I have so much time ahead of me.  I am becoming more accepting of who I am, where I have come from, and where I am going.  I will continue to face my fears and make more room in my heart.
