Messages from Myself
I am startled by the negative messages I give myself while taking a yoga class.
“Oh, that leg used to be a lot stronger and not wobble, what did you do to it?“
“Why can’t I ever go further in this yoga pose, what’s wrong with me?”
“Did I wear the appropriate yoga apparel, or am I looking like I just rolled out of bed?”
But if I began watching my thoughts instead of getting caught up in them and therefore feeding them. Then I can just observe them going by.
In yogic writings, these fluctuations and waves of thoughts that disturb us are called “citta-vritti.”
