A Subtle Adjustment

Did you know that your New Year's Eve celebration last night was a little longer than usual?

That's right. The official clock keepers, whoever they are, added one second, a leap second, to the end of 2005. The last minute of the year was actually 61 seconds long.

This subtle adjustment is necessary because as the earth gets older it doesn't spin around as fast as it once did.

There's a lot of wisdom there that you can apply to your life.

While I sit here at my computer writing this, there's not much I can guarantee. But I can guarantee that, like the earth, you're getting older, too.

So do what the time geeks do:
1) Monitor the situation, be conscious. It's one of the greatest benefits of a true yoga practice, you become more aware. Pay attention and you'll see how your body is changing, and maybe slowing down, as you get older.
2) Do no harm. Ahimsa. It's the great yama. It's the great vow. Adjust your practice. Slow down, if necessary, so that you don't harm yourself.
3) Don't stop. Notice that the time geeks didn't "stop time" or even try to stop it. Don't stop your practice either, just because the old lumbar ain't what it used to be.

Don't just read about it. Get up. Experience it. Experience yoga!

p.s., Our pink Women's CHITTA HAPPENS cap sleeve T's are selling already. Up until now you've only been able to get one of these shirts at the Experience Sanskrit workshop.

But you can get one now. They're $18 plus S&H. ORDER HERE.

This 100% cotton garment is made by American Apparel. It's imprinted with Patanjali's second sutra in both Devangari script and English: yogas chitta vrtti nirodhah.

The translation is there, too. Yoga is stilling the movement of the mind.
