This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a yoga workshop. Every time that I have attended a yoga workshop, I have found three common things…1) I learn something new 2) I fall in love with yoga all over again 3) I am exhausted. This time was no different. I fell in love with yoga all over again and wanted to share a little part of the weekend with all of you...
It was a Bhakti Yoga weekend with Sean Johnson & the Wild Lotus Band. Soulful and sweet. Poetry and art, movement and love. Here is the resulting poem from one of our sessions…inspired by the stories of Mirabai, Rumi and Oriah.
There is a fear of never being good enough
And it rests, never
It sits sometimes in the front seat and sometimes in the back
And that doubt is so very LOUD
It makes me tired, so very tired
Does it make you tired too?
Then, let it go and let them go too
Let go of all those that make you feel less than good enough
Certainly don't let go of feeling
But, do let go
Release those that would want you to keep holding on
To keep holding on to
Not being good enough
It is not you that is shining at that moment
It is merely an illusion
For certainly you are
You are enough
