Today the post was about succeeding being proportional to one's willingness to fail. First thought "I don't want to fail! insert beating heart, sweaty palms, and chest breathing. Wait a minute...I read it again SUCCESS, Michelle, is proportional to one's willingness to fail. What holds you back from exploring, dancing with your desire / dream? The fear of failure? Was the first step acknowledgement? (thanks Heather :)) Can I sit within and hold space for the fear of failure? Can I break down the barrier or wall that pride / ego has built? Can I then move through it making room for success?
I have this image in my head of a peak pose (asana) I would like to conquer (for lack of a better word). This week I will fail so I can succeed. Let me define success. Playing with the pose with the intention of finding the healing goodness without joyless striving. I think I will use K. Pattabhi Jois as my inspiration...not moving on to another peak pose till I have succeeded :). What successes will you find?
...may YOU be happy & peaceful...may YOU be healthy and well...may YOU be love and feel love...may YOU be free from harm...may YOU feel complete and utter surrender...
