The Flow of Things


With my Yoga Teacher Training at Feel Feel Hot Yoga coming up next April I have been practicing a great deal and reading around the subject in texts such as the Tao Te Ching. The idea of moving in ‘the flow’ of The Tao, Life or Universal Energy has therefore been rolling around my mind a great deal. This morning as I was driving to the Feel studio to open up I had the image of a car entering a motorway from a slip road. The car has to adjust its approach to feed into faster moving traffic. This takes observation, judgement, skill. Remember the first time you did it as an inexperienced driver? Moving in the energetic flow is less about speed and more about harmonising with the energy of life, which is what we aim to attain through our Yoga, meditation and Martial Arts practices. With flow there is no fear of physical disaster as with driving on the motorway if we misjudge the stream! But it’s worth giving thought to the effect of our resistance to the flow of things. There is much in life I cannot change, even if I desperately want to. My resistance to this causes me pain. Now I am no sage but over time (I’m a slow learner!) I conclude that this resistance is not only pointless but draining to me and those who live alongside me. Let’s go with the flow. Peace & Love Shasha x
