If we focus on our own progress, on our own path, we will do better than if we’re focussing on others progress down their own path.
Handstand is a visceral expression of one-pointed focus—a place where we are only engaged with the experience of that one moment.
Concentrate your energies. Focus your efforts.
Keep to the path. Don’t get nervous about whether someone else is making more progress doing something else.
We support ourselves so we can support others
We prepare ourselves by being well.
It is easier to be well when we’re well, so we need to treat ourselves as if this is important.
We can’t be available to others when we’re not strong enough to serve ourselves.
Trials, tribulations, challenges of all sorts will never disappear from our lives. Our practice is to use them to see ourselves as the powerful, luminous beings we are.
To understand our own truth, we must be challenged.
