Half an hour ago all my challenges disappeared. How can I have a challenge when I'm lived, when I'm "only" the instrument and not the player?
Currently I'm reading the book by Chaitanya S. Balsekar "Dream of consciousness". Chaitanya is the brother of Ramesh Balsekar and he shares with this brother the deep understanding of Advaita. The book can be ordered here: https://advaita.3dcartstores.com/search.asp?keyword=Dream+of+consciousness&search=GO. (For the time being blogger does not allow to link to a word).
The thought "no challenges anymore" appeared in my consciousness and lightness was felt.
Things happen or don't happen, what can "I" do?
I quote from the above mentioned book, page 163: " Life is not a challenge to be faced, but a mystery to be enjoyed as it unfolds moment by moment. Life has no purpose. Life is its own purpose, meaning 'living' is the purpose of life.
The next morning:
I sip coffee. For me it does not work to prepare posts and publish them at a later time. At a later time I want to write something else already. I've new pictures, new thoughts.I'm also too critical towards my texts and want to correct them, but then I spend even more time with my blog, what I don't want. Yoga and blogging became a monster that devours all my time. It needs to be tamed.
I learned that it's better not to publish too often, this shoos reader away.
Nevertheless today comes another post, not only one. In the second series comes another asana with legs behind head. I want to write about this, too and this was it then for a while with these sort of asanas. Taking pictures of eka pada sirsasana taught me again how helpful it can be to repeat the asanas again and again. Each time when I had to repeat it, I got better.
Repetition is an open secret, if one wants to improve anything.
