Practice As If Saving Your Head From Fire - Zen Master Eihei Dogen This is one of my favorite quotes because it's such a clear reminder to connect with what is important: Our nourishment (which is what real yoga practice is all about). Now, I don't know about you, but if my head was on fire, I'd be ruthlessly focused about putting that fire out... - I wouldn't do it casually while planning my day... - I wouldn't limit my effort to the times I was on a yoga mat... - I wouldn't let excuses prevent me from making my best effort... Nope, I'd be committed.
Moment to moment, throughout my day. Unfortunately, most of us don't have that same kind of commitment to our nourishing yoga practice (sometimes, me included). And remember, we're not talking yoga postures here, but our "commitment to calm" I shared with you a few weeks back.
“When you make an effort to commit to calm, your very effort will begin to calcify into habit.”
I know it's hard at first, and that's why I am gifting you this Inner Peace Journal to help. It's a powerful tool that I created for my students in the BrightLife Yoga Collective, and it was such a hit, I wanted to share it with you too.
This simple, fill-in-the-blank journal was designed to keep you connected to your "commitment to calm" throughout your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to fill out each morning and each evening--and my students say it makes a huge difference in how they feel (even if they use it just a couple of times a week).
Once you get a chance to put it to work, drop me a note to let me know what difference it makes for you.
