I went to a yoga class today which I highly recommend for anyone. You are doing yoga if you just go, sit and breathe. (That is what it was originally all about.) I used to do yoga for the physical as much as the mindfulness and breathing. Now for me it all about the letting go and mindfulness. (Herbie did a great post about mindfulness.) But it is so good to do the physical practice and be ok where I am. Anyway, today the yoga instructor casually said about a posture "don't overthink it". Simple but profound for yoga and anything in life. We are at our best when we let go and let it flow. Thinking too hard and grasping too hard rarely bring the desired results and certainly do not enhance the process or journey. Reading Dr. Schubiner's book a couple of years ago revealed this to me at the beginning. You cannot be all things to all people, you are human, and sometimes we all are mistakes even with the best of your intentions. And most important off all, be kind to yourself. Let go of things that do not serve you ( in many meanings of that phrase.). And I have found that releasing future expectations is the other side of the coin.
