In With Love, Out With...

Sunday, December 14, 2008

I have been going to a Restorative Yoga class recently. It is a quiet, meditative process, mostly stretching and holding the stretch for long periods. It has been good for my physical healing process and even better for my frame of mind. Yesterday, in one of the longer poses, I was deepening my breath and meditating on breathing in love, light and joy. I was attempting to release hate and resentment. It seemed healthy and deliberate, and well, good for me.

This evening during the class, I was doing the same, breathing in and out. I know, novel idea, huh? Anyway, in with love, out with...Oh, what if I released love instead of hate? In with love, out with love, hmm? Could it be?

So, being adventurous of soul, I attempted to breathe in love and breathe out love. Guess what? It worked. I did not have to keep anything straight, breathe in hate, release love...No, that is not right. I do not want to breathe in hate. But breathe in love, release love? I think I am on to something.
