Settledown in your conscious sequence
Years go by, step by step, breath after breath… You once stepped from one train into another. From childhood into youth. From youth into adolescence and right hop, hop… into maturity. From high school into university into your job into another job and hop on another train. The Vinyasa is the element that sews together the various moments in a sequence of (life) changes. It is like the string on which beads are strung for a Mala. The linking may be of two types: the conscious one or the unconscious. Do you ever stop yourself? Change is always occurring – even when you’re not running. Usually a sequence of changes is linked by unconsciousness; or in other words, the conscious mind doesn’t seem to perceive this. The yogi is able to perceive the moment-to-moment sequence of changes past, present, and future. When one perceives clearly both the instigation and the outcome of moment-to-moment changes, one can choose to undertake a sequence of actions that has a conscious end point and will have a particular effect.
This will be the first post in 2012. The first one in a series of monthly focus. In this first post. Tale a minute to stand still.

Are you a reflective person? Did you think of what you did last year? Are you satisfied? What could you have done different? Did you help others ? Did you do the good things for the good reasons? Do you have regrets? Do you like the train you’re in? Enjoying the ride? Is your sequence of changes conscious? It’s time to still the mind to reflect and change. What are your new year resolutions? Did you really be honest thinking of those? Are these really changes you want to make? ‘You are the change that you like to see in this world!’
Happy New You! Anneke
