It’s only by bringing a habit into your conscious awareness that you can observe what it’s doing, how it empowers and serves you or doesn’t ~ Jeff Olsen
Today I jumped around a bit on the Yoga With Adriene February calendar. Today’s video was 38 minutes but instead I deided to do the 20 minute Yoga for Loneliness (even though I’m not feeling lonely!) but I remembered it was a gentle low to the ground pratice (yay!) which is what I was feeling I wanted, and also I was able to do it before work (mainly because my dog woke me up early by barking to be let outside so I got up at 5:30!
Today’s Daily Calm meditation was entitled The Moth’s Mistake – and was talking about comfort and how moth’s mistake a burning flame for the comfort of light, but that could end up causing more suffering rather than comfort! So it’s important to notice when you are looking for comfort – what are you looking for it in? food? alcohol? shopping? and how long does the feeling of comfort last? If it is a detrimental sort of comfort (i.e. overeating for comfort, or drowning sorrows in alcohol or going on a shopping spree), maybe it’s the wrong kind of comfort for you!
