PLEASURE IN THE WORK OF ART OF YOUR LIFE
FEBRUARY 18TH, 2009: I am a poet, dancer, singer, artist and musician. I have been since I was a child. So when I read Thich Nhat Hanh's words, "Each minute of our life is a work of art. Everything we do is an act of poetry or a painting if we do it with mindfulness." I got it.
More importantly what this means to me is that as an artist there is pleasure in creating one's life. You can ask anyone that dances, sings, writes about the joy that comes from their art and they will tell you what great pleasure they get from it. The thing is that we are all the artists of our own lives. I just hope that you use this practice to find pleasure in experiencing your life.
I don't want you to worry about doing the poses perfectly or trying to do them like me or a dvd or someone else. There is no pleasure in that. Instead I want this practice to be about being yourself, your most beautiful self and taking pleasure in that. Why? Because the real yoga is what you CAN'T SEE, IT IS INVISIBLE. So know that when you join me I am looking for what is most amazing about each and everyone of you, I see your beauty and want to inspire you to dream big! In the words of Dr Wayne Dyer, "Let no doubt into your dreams and intentions. The dreamers are the saviors of the world. Just as visible world is sustained by the invisible, so too do the manifestations of man find nourishment in the visions of dreamers. BE ONE OF THOSE DREAMERS!"
Rock on! Love, Silvia
