I was in bed at 9:30 p.m. yesterday at night. It's dark at that time already. I slept almost at once. To be in bed so early is a very good start for the spiritual practices next morning.
Sitting meditation: I thought of the corporate tax declaration, the trade declaration, the VAT that I have to do for 15 companies. I thought of the piles of paper on my desk, the annual accounts I have to do in a very short time. I thought of the bank accounts that I have to check, I thought of the accruals I have to do. Finally I thought about sex, but I didn't like that either. I had forgotten the intention of this practice, I got lost in thoughts. Only for a fracture of a second I was capable to see me sitting in lotus pose on the floor on my meditation cushion. A few seconds of awareness happened so. 15 min were over much too fast.
Sunshine experiences stress, I thought.
Ashtanga yoga: When sitting meditation was black, yoga was white. Thoughts disappeared. I had focus. There was not the time for all the asanas, but this was OK. What I did had intensity. I was deep into the asanas and the breath was there all the time. I even lifted me up into urdhva dhanurasana 3 times.
I took the time for the last pose - savasana: let go, let go, let go, I thought. I like it to feel the "hard" floor, when I lie on my back. After a while I rolled my body to the right side. The end.
