Reading from Class week of 4/9/2013: Georg Feuerstein on “Mindfulness”
From Yoga Gems:
“So long as we are on automatic, we are propelled by our own habit patterns, and this merely reproduces our state of unenlightenment. The moment we introduce mindfulness, however, we can control undesirable thoughts, motivations, emotions, and actions and activate their positive counterparts.” – Georg Feuerstein
With renewal of spring, I was inspired by the illumination and benefits that can come through yoga practice. When we are struggling or stuck it can be hard to see another way, however, efforts in mindfulness can show us we are not, and the way to new possibilities.
