Slow And Steady...

Yoga, being the something like an extended marathon while other western exercises are sprints, has made me exercise patience. But as I breathe into each pose, I know that the long-term benefits are well worth it. Today I split up my workout into two parts. I used Comcast On Demand with their handy programs on Exercise TV. I've gotta love Tom Morley for taking yoga a bit out of it's breathe and chant routine to create Yoga For Abs. Jennifer Galardi's Zen In Your Den, rounded out the end of my 30 minute practice session with a more standard repertoire of movements. My focus today was more on meditation and Ho'oponopono though. Every challenge throughout the day was met with this mantra. 'I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.' I also experimented with manifestation methods. My favorite videos to this end are at www.visionboard.org.au. I love the one on Courage, it's perfect for when you are faced with an obstacle to your goals. Practicing the Kundalini 'Fire Breath' meditation pushed harder and harder against my willpower. It's amazing how just the art of breathing can try your endurance. The key word for today is 'exploration'. I sought to test my body and mind's limits, which as far as I can tell are endless. I'll keep simply looking ahead in Warrior 1 pose; standing strong and tall. I'm stretching, breathing with each arm opposing, chest jutted out proudly, fingers trembling a bit from the effort. Ahhh... There it is, just on the horizon. Nirvana.
