Over the weekend, I had the privilege of being in a Vinyasa yoga intensive with an ex military and sober man, Rolf Gates. He is one of the most grounded and approachable well known yogis that I have met.
Included in the massive amounts of yoga, Rolf also included some time for journal writing and working with our intentions for the New Year. He spoke about facing our own internal challenging mountains and included a talk on how we are constantly classifying our life experiences as either good or bad.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there….” Like Rumi, what if we could get past the ideas of right doing and wrong doing within ourselves? We are constantly keeping score and classifying the experiences we have as good or bad. We are late for an appointment and we quickly file that experience as bad. Another time, we are early and we quickly classify that as good. We find ourselves constantly bouncing from one end to the other.
What kind of person would you be and what would your life look like if there was no line?
