I've decided to embark on a 31-day exercise in discipline. Recently, it's dawned on me that the longer I consider 'what to do' - the longer I'm not doing much of anything. I've always wanted to learn how to play guitar...to write something meaningful...to cook really well...to practice meditation...to grow a garden...the list goes on. This month, my intention is to practice asana for (at least) 10 minutes a day and meditation for 5 minutes. Fifteen minutes each day that is totally self-indulgent and self-exploratory. I've always had an active mind and attention that doesn't rest fully very often or for very long. I know that it's possible to train my mind and my body to do nearly anything I decide I want to do. So it begins today - no more excuses.
Though I'm trying not to 'expect' anything from this little journey, I can't help but feel like it'll be more difficult than it sounds. I hope to chronicle my challenges and successes here - and will do the best I can to reflect on these things as they unfold. But I will also do my best not to judge myself if I fail to do that. First, I begin with the discipline of asana/meditation. Perhaps even these two commitments are an ambitious beginning - we'll see!
