Day # 21. I Was Asked, What Are You Feeling?

Stepping outside of a routine brings a deeper awareness.

Today, I practiced yoga with the intent to focus on what I was feeling. I tried keeping my eyes closed so I could stay focused. Although, the instructor demonstrated several poses I have never done before, so I kept my eyes open long enough to get the instruction, and then turned closed them.

How ironic, he asked if we were feeling frustrated or mad. I guess, I was not the only one who was experiencing some frustration. I struggled just trying to get into the pose let alone hold it. 

He questioned,  “if you are feeling irritated, is this a familiar pattern that arises when you don’t get what you want?“

Our emotions contain valuable information if we are patient enough to embrace them.
