Day 39 – Create New Habits

This week’s revelation is that routine creates habit. With all this time at home, I want to create some new habits to take back into the New Normal. Of course I want to finish some concrete tasks too, but really what is most important for me is not the “Finishing” but creating a routine of new habits. In the first week of this the focus was on rejuvenating a home Yoga practice. Inspired by the Book – Essentialism – The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by GregMcKown A key to starting a new habit is don’t start several habits at once, and what is the smallest finate task that is measurable towards the goal because done is better than perfect. For Me 4 healthy shakes a week in the morning is ✅. #routine #habits #day39 #shelterinplace2020 #morningshake #essentialismbook #mydharmaproject

Day 27 Porch reading with fresh flowers mom dropped off from her garden

During this time at home I am re-reading one of the few life changing books for me: Stephan Cope  – The great work of your life – He interprets the Bhagavad Gita with a brilliant map of how   to create the conditions for your dharma; to bring forth what is within you.   “Once you realize the whole world is within each one of us, you understand who you are who you have been and what your pilgrimage is across the ages”

Day 23 – Yoga is about restraining the fluctuations in the mind, so you don’t go careening into the past and hurling into the future from one second to the next, instead you learn to mitigate / narrow the field of play from the breath to the body

Thank u @Marcstpiere, For a your wisdom and teaching this morning, Your words around Spanda, the Sanskrit concept of pulsation / little picture to big picture, with awareness deciding which aperture to focus on, was just what I needed to ground. For me the Vedic tradition is really obsessed with living a fulfilled life  and what better time than now to rejuvenate my practice which I began over three decades ago. Along the path some significant experiences were your Anusara workshops, which allowed me to appreciate this practice at a new level, and now as we are all looking for a safe place this practice came rushing back in… reminding me the safe place is within each of us, in each breath, in our community. Thank you again @Marc @Yogasakti studio
