YOUR LIFE GPS: WHERE ARE YOU GOING THIS YEAR?
February 5, 2011. Just a year ago I used GPS for the first time. I get the idea. You plug in where you want to go and it helps guide you there. The key point being you KNOW where you want to go. Yoga to me has been that which helps us ask the question “who am I” and eventually we get to the “why am I here” and even further down the path “WHERE THE HELL AM I GOING?” So this concept of GPS is pretty vibrant.
If you can get to the point that you know where you want to go then you know your spiritual maturity is evolving in the right direction. Until I finally decide to go to Tuscany on a Yoga Retreat one year I just played at entering a real GPS for my life. Then from that point forward I got clear. I want that for you. Get on the mat, do the practice, get your destination in gear and watch what happens. Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia

GETTING LOST IN LIFE - WHY ITS OK
Monday April 27th: Why Getting Lost is OK (About our internal GPS System and how I used a real GPS for the first time and what I learned)
Ok you guys so for the first time while in
This may seem like not a big deal but recently I had the experience in human relationship of being asked to trust and have faith, which I did, and then “getting lost” as I found out what I was told was true turned out to be false. I lost my footing, I lost emotional equilibrium. But as a result of this practice of yoga I learned that falling off the path of what we think life is supposed to be is an opportunity for spiritual growth. There is more than one way. Will I need to work harder to trust the next human relationship based on what happened here, probably, but love will win over skepticism with time. Hey, it helped me love GPS so anything is possible.
While in the
Going off roading then is the answer. Get lost! How? It begins with allowing ourselves to explore new pathways, or poses or relationships. And if we do get lost as long as we are conscious of our actions and are causing no harm to others then why not? We have to trust the internal GPS of our internal locus that we will get unlost again. And its through getting lost, that facing of the unknown or fear or being out of control or trying something new, that we often learn the most. We learn to try the path less traveled as Robert Frost speaks of. And most of all it wakes us up to so many other options! Better this than living life in a constant state of “ok” where its just half a life.
Now I’m the first to admit this isn’t easy. I have to say that I could feel my breath change when hiking especially these fossil falls, all black rock, like the surface of the moon or in the snow on the mountain, or in dense forest you can easily get lost but while lost you can also enjoy the experience.
That’s what I hope we learn, enjoy life, get lost, get unlost but make it all worthwhile as a means to learn about yourself and grow spiritually and emotionally. Have faith, trust and explore love! Silvia
