Yoga pose ASANA, I’m told. I’m pretty sure that most Yoga poses are beyond me. We did do some yoga during our Thanksgiving Retreat and Renewal. This is where I discovered my ineptitude. And I got past it and still enjoyed the impossibility of some of the yoga poses.
From the Book of Joy (pg 92), I loved a particular quote from the Dalai Lama:
I would say to everyone: You are made for perfection, but you are not yet perfect. You are masterpiece in the making.
I love this. You can say this to your downtrodden colleague. To yourself. To your tumultuous offspring. To your spouse (carefully!).
Remember: those coming on the journey: 3 minutes of meditation every day! I’m holding both of us accountable to this important habit!
CMIO’s take? You are not yet perfect. Neither am I.
