Day 9 of this challenge. Ha! First time for time lapse. So wish I could accomplish this much in such abbreviated amount of time ! #bakasana and my #aerialyogahammock were two of my closest partners in crime today! @markrobberds you gave me tips today made this pose even more accessible. Giving thanks and gratitude to process, experience, @kinoyoga @omstarsofficial @liquidoactive @ohmmeapparel for amazing opportunities to expand my thinking and my practice.

Do you guys ever feel like there are these weird patterns everywhere? For example, It seems that everything goes wrong all at once, then things are fine for a long time, then all the things break again. This even happens to multiple different people, all with the same issue, in the same way at the same time. Just look at the news these past few months, it's all the same very specific three or four things all happening at once, to completely different people all over the world at the same time. Is it that we only notice those things happening when they happen to someone we know; and that this kind of thing just always happens, but we don't normally pay attention to it? Or is life actually thematic? In my almost 30 years of living, I came to the conclusion that yes, people's lives are experienced in thematic seasons or chapters (let me know if it's just me thinking this). The reason for it may be because everything causes everything else, and that when one thing happens it influences a big long chain reaction of other similar things. But that doesn't tell us why these themes are so perfectly in sequence. It truly feels like each person's events are happening specifically at their right moment where they could have their lives divided into nicely titled chapters. And it's all part of a perfectly executed web of events that all intricately connect together to form every moment of time. For improvement to happen, there needs to be an evaluation and strain. For some reason the intricate system we live in is built to improve, (even when entropy is favored) which means consistent or at least occasional testing needs to happens. Tests are administered by the strong to select a potential asset from the weak. The harder the test the subject succeeds in, the greater of an asset they become. So if you are tested with the perception that everything is going wrong, know that it is specifically meant for your improvement, and all you have to do is learn and do better next time.

Nothing to gain
Nothing to prove
Nothing to lose . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I feel as though I'm at a juncture in the development of my person/life/etc, where I have to decide whether it's more valuable to 'learn' from my past mistakes to avoid making the same ones multiple times, or to approach each situation as new, and fresh, as though the past did not exist. The eastern philosophies would have me exist and operate from the present moment, as it is the only one that ever truly exists. Intellectualism, logic, and rationale (which I've been conditioned to think is the better, safer, more respected platform) would have me use the knowledge that I've gained from my experiences to build my understanding of the present and avoid any pitfalls for the future. But with trying to sidestep the potential traps of the future comes a fair amount of inner suffering. My ego wants to stay safe, to protect itself. And still, I want to answer for myself, what exactly do I have to lose? I'm reminded of a phrase bikram used to tell us all the time, "You have nothing to lose. You never had anything to begin with!" Altho it doesn't solve anything, it's soothing - like a #mantra muttered underneath the breath.

Just watched this video about Tupac and his ex-wife. Thus still got me... I feel like everybody has this ex. The one where they cause you so much pain but then break away and say I did it so I wouldn't hurt you. Surely there are good times and surely you both erred. Yet they never see beyond what they want to see, the pain already inflicted; the selfishness their actions display. Then when you "fall from their grace" it seems they expect you to stand frozen in time. Waiting for them to love you again, to need you again, to seek your counsel...to be everything nobody else can never be. And your not a victim because people do to us what we allow them to do when it comes to emotions. Yet it don't make it less painful. I just think it is interesting to see these examples; that regardless of status in life we are all just people. #Fallible to #humanbehavior #pontification I hope y'all not out there frozen. Thankfully I didn't stay frozen. I got to know me and introduced her to him each and everyday of our friendship. Then #imarriedmybestfriend 💜✌

My 7-day work week has taught me to value every little break that I have. If I'm not teaching, I'm most likely out and about exploring my own city like a tourist. It's so easy to give in to the mentality of having 'no time', especially in a fast-paced city like Hong Kong, but this is exactly what this quote is all about. You can't succumb to that kind of thinking because then you'd just be 'existing', and dragging yourself through the drudgery of everyday life. To 'live', all you have to do is take matters into your own hands. Whatever inspires you, find the time and do it. Live more, smile more and fill yourself with a warm sense of fulfilment. 😊

#IfPunctuationMarksWerePeople, quotation marks would be like a renowned author, reciting quotes from authors you didn't even know you should know about.
