I’ve been meditating to the intention of love: often thought of as something that is given and received, my little epiphany after this last bout with heartbreak has been that I have all the love I need, already. I’ve been suggesting it for months in my yoga classes without living it myself: “Let yourself be supported. You have everything that you need.*” I need the repetition of a mantra to get it through a thick skull and a superthick superego.
*imagine in a super serene yoga voice. One of my favorite side effects of teaching is that I am forced to be calm, relaxed, poised, serene, for 90 minutes, even when the rest of my day has been anything but. Did I mention I didn’t get laid off but instead was promoted? And that I sold my house? It’s been crazy times.
