A heart opener

20121221-112314.jpg

There’s a big hype about today, whether we like to agree or not, I’m pretty sure we’ve all thought about, talked about, complained about 12/21/12. I personally didn’t believe the world was going to end, but I did realize something. In the midst of discussing, exchanging, and sighing over the conversation around “dooms day” I concluded that every day, every moment is the end of the world. With every breath we take we get another chance to let go and let in.

So today I leaped out of bed and bended backwards into ustrasana (camel pose). And there’s something to be said about a heart opener such as this one. The poetry behind the pose?

Fall onto your knees and surrender.
Repent
Then reach back with an intent

What are you opening your heart too?
What brick will you pick, dissect, what habit will you kick?

We all build walls to protect ourselves, in ustrasana our whole body opens up, our back bends, and our heart reaches forward, as if it wants to grab hold of the movement of love, it’s impossible not to let it all go in camel pose. Impossible not to let it all in when your left so vulnerable.

So every day is the end of the world. And every moment we get a new chance. So open up your heart fully. Go ahead and reach back. Be a little vulnerable. Bend back into camel and let your heart take you for a ride.

About yogirookie

I'm a young mother, living the real life, full of double double toil and trouble. I find that the woes of life do nothing for a soul searching for balance and that's where yoga comes in. I am by no means disciplined and intense spirituality makes me uncomfortable, but what might seem like a small step to some, if actually a giant leap for me.
