Years ago I remember I caught site of a composition that my seventh-grade son was writing for school. The first line started out “I got home, pushed past my parents, and went upstairs to my room.”
“Pushed past my parents”? Those people that were just getting in the way? (We were simply trying to find out how his day was, I am sure.) I realized that I was now an obstacle to him, though I was putting my heart and soul into raising him. My point is: The jobs of “Mom” and “Dad” are not always immediately rewarding.
Yoga is like that too. Iyengar Yoga is especially concentrated on correct alignment, movement and form. It will take time, but each day of yoga there will be a quiet one-centimeter movement of muscle and bone that is moving you towards a beautiful pose….. someday.
Here is the quote for the day:
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest that you reap, but by the seeds you plant.” Robert Louis Stevenson
