This human suit. This amazing vessel.
It’s not really me.. it’s an ally, a friend, a magic container that grounds me to the earth, holding my light within ✨
Amazing how at times this gets forgotten. How the lines get blurred and all of a sudden my minds attached.
Attached to the way she looks, her size, her scars, her stretch marks, her supposed imperfections.
My mind plays tricks on me telling me this flesh determines whether I’m loved.
That this body will either make me good enough or see me left wanting.
Craziness to think she is me and I am her.
Craziness to believe she determines my happiness.
Craziness to put so much pressure & expectation on her, when she is there loving and supporting me unconditionally.
This body is just a body.
An amazing gift,
and yet does she determine my worthiness?
It is my being that makes me beautiful.
It is the soul that resides within this vessel, that shines through these eyes;
It is that, that creates connection,
that shows my true essence,
that feels love and IS love.
It is what’s beneath the outlines of this human form,
beneath the fluctuations of this mind,
That is what matters
That is what’s me ✨
Ardha Chandra Chapasana. There is a beautiful and fascinating mythology that cradles this posture... The word chapa refers to the sugarcane stalk the goddess Lalita uses as her bow. Her arrows are flowers, and she has a half moon (ardha chandra) in her hair. The goddess who holds the bow (chapa) represents the possibility of our emotional expansiveness. From pleasant and agreeable, to fierce and formidable. The intricacy of goddess Lalita is reflective of our own complex nature. Although her essence is sweet and demure with flower arrows and a sugarcane bow, her weapons become sharp and strong when harmful or disruptive forces need slaying. It is powerful to relate to this inner dichotomy to ourselves because there times to be pleasant and agreeable, and times to stand with ferocity and fight for what is right and moral. Channeling the peaceful warrior within. 🏹 @eastwestyoga @juanyogalife
