the mind chatter continued through the whole of my morning yoga session... well, it finally dawned on me that i have clearly lost sight of the big picture and perhaps need to brush up on the basics. why am i doing all this in the first place? reluctantly, i dragged myself off the mat, picked up the book again and scheduled in some quiet time for reflection.
i am finding this nicely succinct sutra very reassuring: my mind needs to calm down and yoga is the tool for it, no doubt. the trouble is that whatever i am doing at the moment is not quite delivering the results.
have i fallen into a rut? do i need to rethink and refresh my practice? or maybe i am going through a little rough patch and just need to keep working through it patiently? or maybe i am overdoing the variety and need to simplify? or maybe i am just overthinking?!!
