Listening

A good yoga practice begins with listening. Stepping down from the need to act and push and exert our will on the world, and opening up to what is going on around us. Asking “what is this?” without expecting or needing an answer. As we grow in our ability to do this we begin to realize that fully listening involves being able to attend to things in two directions at once: what is external to us, and what is going on inside (thoughts, moods, emotions, habits, desires). When we are able to attend to both, simultaneously, with curiosity, detachment, and a sense of humour, then we are practicing advanced yoga. Handstands are for beginners :).
