Aah dusting: an excellent way to re-acquaint yourself with classics; THIS ONE has had its 3 readings 🙂 first early 90s and it truly DID bring big CHANGE to my world; last reading was a ‘non-event’ POSSIBLY because I had truly listened to the teachings from the first 2 readings and had assimilated them like an affirmation! (i.e. I no longer need to judge the words; somewhere along the line I had accepted them as truth and had total confidence in the teachings). Back in the 90s I felt it was full of treasure so I gifted this book many times. Now I don’t want to spoil your read by revealing too much of what I think I assimilated from it but I will just share a few ‘little’ things to whet your appetite for the read perhaps? It was definitely my first introduction to the concept of ‘mindfullness’ pre my Yoga practice days and the importance of giving ‘full attention’ to the experience; This in turn makes it easier to hear ‘the detail’ in Yogasana instructions and in turn find the detail in your body. Assimilating ‘Mindfullness’ is part and parcel of your Bikram Yoga practice.
“Your business is not to ‘get somewhere’ ~ it is to be here” Stay present; there are no ordinary moments.
“Life comes at us in waves. We can’t predict or control those waves, but we can learn to surf” You can only control your effort not the outcome.
CULTIVATE a simple life of few desires ~ that way you will always have enough.
“the routine looked good but you did a sloppy job taking the tape off” 🙂 (love this) How you do anything is how you do everything! PRACTICE EVERYTHING: You may understand it but do you REALISE IT. Do you LIVE IT.
And finally possible the most important TWO questions and TWO CORRECT ANSWERS you should always ask yourself!
Q: Does it matter? A: Yes.
Q: Does it matter? A: No.
I’ll leave you to ponder that one…
