Some days my practice is simply sublime. Today is one of those days. It happens so rarely. Only because my mind is a noisy, riotous thing on most days. I have a hard time settling into my practice in a graceful way. I harbour no ill will about this experience. I accept this as part of my journey to self. I used to judge myself mercilessly for not being able to quiet my mind. When that became too painful I gave it up. Through my yogic studies I learned that the mind thinks a 1,000 thoughts in the blink of an eye. That is the minds job. Once I realized that, I knew that judging my self for thinking was pointless. Thinking is the minds job. The goal is to become the observer of the thoughts. When I can get to that place of shunia I am peace.
