Auspicious on the inside


I wish I could bottle practices like the one I had today.

It just felt so goshdarned good...light, effortless, no discomfort, the feeling of my foot pressing into my stomach in half lotus poses, the feeling of my chin bone pressing hard into my shin, wishing it wasn't over when I was done...

Funny, from the OUTSIDE, I am sure my practice looks essentially the same on a day to day basis. But what changes, day to day, is the way it FEELS on the inside. And today, it just felt...well...auspicious.

I love it when that happens.

Aren't the lotus toes on your ribs just the best feeling?!

Ohhh Lauren, I totally understand the feeling! Practice feels so good internally, might look the same on the outside though, but I'm sure if you're feeling that good you look floaty!
