Let's do YOGA!

In case you missed Yoga LIVE on Saturday, April 11, here is a replay. Namaste!


From "365 Tao"...


SITTING


Cat sits in the sun.

Dog sits in the grass.

Turtle sits on the rock.

Frog sits on the lily pad.

Why aren't people so smart?


Those who follow Tao are fond of pointing out the wisdom of

animals. When they see a cat sitting motionless in the sun or a turtle

who stretches her head upward in a still pose, they say that these

animals are meditating. They know how to be still and conserve their

internal energy. They do not dissipate themselves in useless activity

but instead withdraw into themselves to recharge.


It is only people who label meditation as some sort of odd

religious activity. This is not the actual case. Something like

meditation happens when we sleep, or when we are absorbed in reading a

book, or when we "daydream" and become so lost in a thought or an image

that we do not notice what is going on around us.


There is no reason to think of meditation as something out of the

ordinary. Quite the opposite. Meditation is the purest and most natural

expression we can have. When you next look at a cat or a dog sitting

still, and admire the naturalness of their actions, think then of your

own life. Don't meditate because it is a part of your schedule or is

demanded by your particular philosophy. Meditate because this is natural.
