I'm fully recovered from back pain. That day (the day before yesterday) where I had that awful back pain is so unreal. A nerve was jammed. This can happen. A wrong movement and voilà.
Nevertheless I fear the next practice. Today is Saturday but I want to test the sun salutations. I want to do a soft practice. Something new is perhaps not a good idea. Sweeney's series is too new to me. I can be creative today: I can practice some forward bending asanas, some twists and some backbending asanas. Then there are the balancing poses and inversions. When I do a few asanas of each category I'll have a balanced practice and I'll regain confidence.
Life can change from one second to the other. Planning life and events is a game, I love to play it. The outcome of anything is not in one's hand. This makes life so exciting. Life always comes with surprises.
Stay modest was the message of the pain for me. I am.
Meditation and pranayama shall become part of my practice.
It is already. I do udjyaj breathing during my practice. The whole practice is meditation.
To do pranayama seperately and to meditate without moving is a step further with it's own experiences.
I shake my head, while enjoying my cup of coffee. What was that for an adventure two days back.
