I wrote down this title a week ago. I cannot remember how it came to my mind. Maybe I read it in the Guruji book, maybe I read it somewhere in one of the so many yoga blogs I follow, or maybe it came across my mind when I was in the shower.
I think the sentence Don't Want Things From Ashtanga, Just Do It makes much sense, but I also feel how hard this is. Because I want a lot of things from my practice.
I want it to give me structure in my life.
I want it to give me a strong and flexible and toned body.
I want it to ease my mind.
I want it to make me feel the love of God.
I want it to give me the feeling I have a community.
I want it to keep me healthy.
I want it to keep me sane.
I want it to show me what the practice is capable of.
I know the answer is in letting go. In releasing, in surrendering. I do know this. In theory. But not in real life.
