Advanced Practice: Wednesday Inspiration

Here is another picture of people doing yoga in their skivvies, to follow up yesterday's Vintage Version. Doesn't being in a relationship sometimes feel just like this? On so many different levels. :D And isn't yoga just the most darling practice for getting closer in our relationships? Allowing us to get closer with ourselves in order to facilitate that getting close to someone else that we so crave?

Man Yoga

Rolling waves of thunderous cloud/Tumble seamlessly into the ocean swell/Rushing lights, red and white/Coursing through crowded city arteries/A world in every cell/As above, so below/Within and out/Reflections bouncing back and forth/In endless, playful song/What I feel in me, I see in you/What I know to be true, arrives in a flash/After eons of careful construction/Mountains emerge and rock strata tilt/All waiting for thousands of years/To beckon you into their wisdom/The infinite truth of this moment/Love can not be taken or given, only shared/The perfect reflection of what is already there. -Emily Simpson

Full Moon in Scorpio, May 5th, 2012.

Excerpted from Brenda Brush's bimonthly article: "A Full Moon is coming in Scorpio on May 5th, 2012 at 11:35 pm. A Full Moon occurs every 29.6 days and there is usually 12 a year. There is one a year in Scorpio and this is it. The sign Scorpio is where we are intensely in control or we are controlled by that area. This Full Moon gives you the opportunity to get a complete view of how much you are controlled and by what. It will also reveal your issues with commitment and what kind of connections you need to cultivate to bring opportunity. This Full Moon will give you an opportunity to look at the past, present, and future of the associations and commitments you have. This should reveal a lot and be an impetus to let go of what is not working and create the space for new opportunities. Scorpio is an all or nothing sign so you won't be able to sit on the fence. If you do you will be left will have an opportunity to get a sneak preview of what is expected of you this fall with this Full Moon in Scorpio. What kind of commitments are you making that will bring transformation in your life? Who will you join with to accomplish something major? This will not be a wishy-washy period of time. You are either in or out. If you are in you better be willing to go the distance. It is also a time that who you are associating with is on the same page you are. There is no room for surprises." For more information on this weekend's full moon, click the following link for an interesting article that a Facebook friend of mine introduced me to this week: Full Moon in Scorpio. Otherwise, enjoy the cartoon!

Advanced Practice: Wednesday Inspiration

The Purpose of Your Life is to Create
We stampede towards meaning/ Draping weight on simple truths/ And shelter under the delusion/ That a sense of purpose/ Will insure against bad things/ We could let life move through us/ Simply unfold, like the Lily at dawn/ Arching to complete her sacred duty/ To be all that she's able/ And know in every cell/ It's enough/ The true love of your life/ Is its longing for itself/ Every thought, every word/ Every moment we allow/ Is an act of creation no less worthy/ Than the one that birthed it all.
Emily Simpson, 2008.

Oh, hey.

My apologies for the lack of posting lately. Responsibilities in the off-line world have kept me away. I look forward to sharing some new stuff with you this week, however.Along with the return to the weekly inspirations: Man Yoga and Advanced Practice(both of which deserve disclaimers, perhaps those will come along this week too), and the weekly fun of vintage yoga(see photo above), I'd like to share some thoughts on developing one's daily sadhana, some poetry, that post about my favorite yoga websites which I've been promising, and perhaps not this week but eventually, some guest posts. Stay tuned, lovelies!
