From Chilly, Cloudy Byron Bay

I came across this bit of writing in my email today and it struck a chord. We yogis try to be good, gooder, goodest through doing various practices, to varying degrees if success.

Natalia describes what happens:
” Often when we come off that mat, and head back into our daily lives, we miss the point. We do not fully realise that we have just spent the last hour and a half digging up our inner child and his/her hurts, or rekindling that old love affair, or revisiting that less-than-realised soul we called mum or dad. And all of the sudden, we fall apart over the dishes in the kitchen sink, yell at our loved ones or break down at the sight of the electricity bill. We stop seeing our beloved for exactly that: our beloved. Instead, we find ourselves A Mess.”

“The Psychology of Yoga” workshop with Natalia and Fabio is offered on July 26 (Sunday) to help with the dilemma of living in the real world while being a not-quite-fully-realized Being. http://www.saffronrose.com
