Still at it…will leap soon…letting go of restrictions.

A student asked me this morning if I practiced Yoga everyday.  I answered that I do practice most days, but that I have a morning meditation practice everyday.  She asked me how that was and I replied that it was usually quite nice to have a few quiet moments to simply “be”, but that sometimes it felt more like just a comfortable seated position in which to obsess.  This morning was one of those mornings…

Wow, I have spent the better part of the weekend setting up this website, with the help and support of my very patient husband, Seth.  So it’s time to tell the world about it and get going, right?  Well, not so fast, I suppose.  Now the voices are all competing for attention.  What about more information here?  Is that really the best photo for right there?  And what about Twitter links?  And a facebook page? And so it goes.  It’s interesting that the theme for my classes has been “letting go of restrictions that may be holding you back”  These sometimes are restrictions in the body, but also in the heart and mind.  So it is really time for me to let go and hit “send” or “share” or whatever button will let those who do not live with me know about the website.  But, man, does the ego have a lot to say on a project like this.  So I am trying to quiet the ego for now.  It was really quite hyper-active as it rearranged website pages and changed fonts during my morning mediation.  I know that is part of the process, and almost ready to release restrictions and leap.  And once I do I know how free I will feel, and a new flow of energy will have begun.  So I am almost ready, just a few more finishing touches…
“If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.”  Deepak Chopra
