In this evening’s yoga class, the instructor said something…something that released a great burden that was laced up tight within me.
Her words, so simple: “Whatever it is you’ve been resisting, whatever it is that you haven’t let go, in your body or your mind or your past, just release it.”
Maybe I’ve heard these words before, maybe not. I don’t know if it was due to the series of heart openers we were working on, if it was the pose we were holding, if it’s due to Mercury in retrograde, if it relates to my state of mind lately or that today was my first day getting back in to real deep asana practice after being sick, or just the way she said these words. Whatever it was, whatever combination could have caused it, today something really released.
Like a silent shout inside my own head, the truth burst forth in my conscious mind; long buried, I’ve tried to run from, hide from, avoid this thought. I felt a dam release, a flood of emotion and a physical letting go of everything that held those feelings back. Naturally, my mind began to ask questions: “How does this change me? What impact will this have on my life? What do I do with this now?” Then a voice deep inside, wiser than the one asking these questions, calmly replied: “Just live with it. JUST LIVE WITH IT.”
I could feel every part of my being, every connection of my soul to the Universe vibrate around me. The chord within me that is connected to so many other chords it’s touched across time and space reverberated at the perfect pitch, found it’s harmonious tune. This is my truth.
Live with it. JUST LIVE WITH IT.
