Bam! I was in my yoga class this Saturday and the very wise Matt Exley from Twisting Fish Yoga said this at the very beginning of the class, as he was leading us through some breath work.
This is it! This is the whole purpose of our breath, meditation, and traditional yoga practices. To access that space where we connect with who we truly are and become the observer of ourselves.
Understanding that all the busy–ness and distractions of the mind, makes up the veil that hides us from who we truly are.
We know our mind is not us, as Eckhart Tolle eloquently explains, yet we let it rule and over-run our lives.
Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments, and definitions that blocks all true relationship. It comes between you and yourself…Eckhart Tolle – The Power of Now
In the space behind the mind, that’s where we have access to our truth. Our conscious self. Our intuition. Our clarity. Our knowingness. Our strength. Our power.
Integrate your truth
