back to yoga!!!
one arm reaches into the past, one arm reaches into the future. you are in the middle, perfectly balanced in the present. do not observe the pose happening to you. embody this pose. be a warrior. not a warrior of aggression but a warrior poised to strike down obstacles. identify your obstacles, recognize your tools, define your desire and purpose and breathe.
how long can you stay here, in this present moment?
