Healing

Photo by Justin Kral.

I can only control my healing journey.

Not yours. Not my family's, not my friends. Nor the path my students take.

I take full responsibility for myself, for doing the work I need to do in order to be healthy, fulfilled, and happy. I choose to love myself, to continually deepen my self-knowledge and self-compassion, what the yogis call svadhyaya, or self-study.

I choose to study my weaknesses, to be aware of them so that I can heal them. I practice awareness of what fears and attachments habitually surface.

Ultimately, my healing is my choice. And yours is yours.

PS Read more about svadhyaya and the benefits of this practice.
