We all need a little help from time to time. We run up against something. There is something in our path. But we know this is our path. We lean in to the resistance, but it does not give. The breath is not moving it away.
We have our mats to come to - a calm oasis in the storm of life. We can work things out through movement. But what about when you need a little something extra? We have the wisdom teachings. We can turn to them. The practice of Svadhyaya allows us to look in a mirror and learn of ourselves - through ourselves, a wisdom teaching, or sacred text. Or how about a blog? Do they count? They do when they are filled with wisdom.
Kathryn Budig has written a great piece of wisdom about finding help in an archetype and learning about yourself.
I think it is beautiful. And it was just what my wife needed this morning! Even as she huffed and puffed about her upcoming day I was reading this blog. I handed her the netbook. It was the best advice I had.
