Reveling in the joys of this mornings practice, teaching @inge_inge my little backbend flow to which she says, “I can’t move like that, it looks like something straight out of the exorcist” Hahahah. A little silliness does the heart good♥️
What is love? Love is involuntary. Brain science tells us it's a drive like thirst. It's a craving for a specific person. It's normal, natural to "lose control" in the early stage of romance. The ancient Greeks called love “the madness of the Gods.” Modern psychologists define it as the strong desire for emotional union with another person. But what, actually, is love. It means so many different things to different people. Songwriters have described it, “Whenever you’re near, I hear a symphony.” Shakespeare said, “Love is blind and lovers cannot see.” Aristotle said, “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”
Love is a force of nature. However much we may want to, we can not command, demand, or take away love, any more than we can command the moon and the stars and the wind and the rain to come and go according to our wishes. Love is bigger than you are. You can invite love, but you cannot dictate how, when, and where love expresses itself. You can choose to surrender to love or not, but in the end, love strikes like lightning: unpredictable and irrefutable. Love does not come with conditions, stipulations, agenda, or codes. Like the sun, love radiates independently.
Love speaks out for justice and protests when harm is being done. Love points out the consequences of hurting oneself or others. It allows room for anger, grief, or pain to be expressed and released. It cannot be imprisoned, or be legislated. Love is not a substance, not a commodity, not even a marketable power source. Love has no territory, no borders. Love is inherently free.
It comes, or not, by grace, of its own will and in its own timing, subject to no human's planning.
Accept what you cannot change and clear your mind of any mental bagage that you might be holding onto. ❤
In todays podcast meditation I talk about acceptance. Find my podcast "Daily Meditation with Zarly" on Anchor.
Not quite but close enough - I got the hands a bit wrong. To all of you open hip beauties - well done for making your way into lotus, I had to get inverted and then ask my friend to place my feet into a lotus position. Something I can work on for sure #yogihowdyoudothat3

Still working on that over the head grab in king pigeon. My shoulders are really starting to open up now (yay 💃) and I have contact for sure but can't quite get a good grip yet. I love making a small loop in my strap which has also been helping me with my switch grip. Getting close with that too. I'll take close for now ☺ #yogajourney#practicemakesprogress
