I love this quote, because I have been paralyzed by many doors that closed behind me and in front of me – I wasn’t able to move through the doors that were opening all around me.
Once I was able to free up the energy that was stuck behind the closed door – I was able to set a clear intention of which open door I wanted to go through. When I was stuck in between I was paralyzed in fear.
Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured. ~B.K.S. Iyengar
Last Autumn passed my Introductory I Assessment in the Iyengar Yoga Tradition. It was a great experience. It stretched me in ways that I didn’t know I could stretch myself in my body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
The practice of yoga in the Iyengar Method gave me the structure to move towards the open door with clear intentions and the freedom to walk through with grace.
Fear can be a great motivator if you are not paralyzed by it – fear and excitement can often sit side-by-side. If you embrace the fear, rather than resist it, you will move closer towards the vibration of excitement. They work together – stretch you to go beyond what you may believe are your limitations.
Enjoy your life……..it is not always easy, but it doesn’t have to be hard. Learn to soften what is rigid in your heart.
Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self realization. Yoga means union – the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions. ~ B.K.S. Iyengar
