I have decided to take up yoga again, as I have missed its captivating of true bliss. I remember when I was a child, and all I wanted to do was wander around in search of an adventure. Life’s obstacles were nonexistent because, for me, there were none. I miss this feeling because I am always stuck in my own head.
Lying as still as a rock as the sounds of the waves of an ocean or the faint chirps of a bird echo through me is my return to childhood’s innocence. My mother and I used to take Body Flow, Yoga and Pilates classes together, which all end with this same feeling. An essence of stillness is principal as your mind and body become trivial.
This is why the corpse pose is so transcending. It allows me to take a step back and neglect prior thoughts for a few moments. In clearing my mind, I am able to begin brainstorming new thoughts. After I am done, my perception of the things I face, time in and time out, become much less hazy.
I say all of this to make it a point to inspire you to clear your mind in whatever way is best. This might include riding horses or working out; it could be knitting a blanket or taking up a new hobby that you have always wanted to explore.
Whatever route you take, allow it to distract you, take you out of your own element and help you to relive the propensity of your youth.
