Forget What You Think You Know

In this moment, can you release expectation?

Be curious about the present. Instead of dwelling on the way your body, mind, heart and spirit felt yesterday or an hour ago, sit with where you are now.

Perhaps you’ve tried a challenging posture (like an arm balance or an inversion) a hundred times. Perhaps every one of those times you fell out. Today, you are ready. Your body moves into the pose effortlessly. Or your mind releases resistance to the teacher’s words. Instead of trying to control, you relax and let go.

Forget what you think you know. Learn to be OK with not knowing what will happen when you try. Be open to possibility, receptive to what is.

You may surprise yourself.
