I was all ready to try and forgive myself for stepping away from my practice for a few days when I picked up a book I’ve been reading throughout this trip. “A Year To Live” is a book by Stephen Levine about living this year as if it were your last, he offers guides to meditation and new ways to live life to the fullest and becoming more aware. The chapter I happened to pick up was called “A Commitment to Life” and reading the title was the only reminder I needed that my yoga practice is a commitment I have made to myself, for myself, and the only person missing out if I take that break is myself. I also find it very interesting that the moment I begin to lose motivation and momentum the universe finds a way to put me back on track.
So, with that in my mind, at about 7pm in the evening here in Berlin, the first quiet moment I have had here today, I am rolling out my mat and starting my practice.Little Reminders Everywhere,
