These Worries

We are so unwise that we wander about in times that do not belong to us, and do not think of the only one that does; so vain that we dream of times that are not and blindly flee the only one that is…Thus we never actually live, but hope to live-

Part Two: Fail Better

We try our best to ignore the excess baggage we accumulate, but every so often (maybe right now) it catches us off-guard, sneaking up on us when we’re not looking, and we find ourselves staring in surprised horror at the looming emotional darkness inside us.

At such times, many of us bury the baggage again as quickly as possible, we try to forget that it ever happened in the first place. Our grief, however, doesn’t disappear just because we ignore it. It sits comfortably inside our unconscious minds, continuing to silently accumulate as we marinate in the sauce of life.

As the days and years go by, the grief we store, builds up steadily. Unlike a nice series of Farmers Walks, our accumulated grief weighs us down and inhibits us, in many ways, too devious for us to realize. The weight of this inner grief leaves firm, aggressive footprints on our lives.

The more grief we hold inside, the more grief we hold back … The more we become cut off from our own authentic emotions, feelings, our true selves. It’s at this moment we lose the gentle feeling of being alive.

The Workout-

To illustrate our message today (it’s extremely rare for us to do this), proceed with the following:

HEAVY- Farmers Walk Medley (HEAVY means picking up and carrying 100% of your body weight?!?)

Heart Beat Walk, Stork Walk, Rack Position Walk, Ardha Uttanasana Walk (Ask), Single Arm Walk (50%), Piston Press Walk (50%)

Notes:

There is only one way to make it through this day (workout), letting go, gently.  Be well.
