"Your ultimate goal is to be happy. Where is that happiness? Within you. If you want to have permanent happiness, it will never come from outside. If somebody makes you happy today, the same person will make you unhappy tomorrow. You are happiness and peace personified. Find that happiness and peace within you."
- Sri Swami Satchidananda

When I first met Carolyn Channel, a lovely and experienced teacher who’s come to offer her classes with Jala, she told me about the first time she laid down in Savasana. “I thought, Finally. This is my moment to exhale. Everyone should get to exhale like that.” Yes, Carolyn, I agree. Everyone should get to exhale like that.

Kim reminded me of something from the cadaver lab: that under the skin there is a remarkable whole unit working together. A whole that is very difficult to separate one piece from another. It is difficult to separate the bicep from the triceps or the muscle from the fascia. Under our skin we are whole. The pieces that we call ‘us’ don’t make us whole. We just are.

I want to be a “Fearless Fosbury.” I am learning that old patterns don’t always work and that sometimes new techniques must be developed in life.

I have thirsted for more–more strength, knowledge, unity–and have wanted visible, measurable results from the work I do. Even if I don’t name that while I’m participating in asana, in reading, in action after action, it is often the truth. What if I could be an empty container, something that could magnify the experience of love?

I am thinking back over the love yourself challenge, and about perfection. Today I planned a strong physical practice to start my day–badly wanted to wake and move for 90 minutes of asana. But waking, a recurring hip problem had flared up, making it possible to put only partial weight on my left leg. The internal voices started right away: “Don’t be lazy–push through.” “Why, body, are you failing me?” “I am healthy and strong–this shouldn’t be a problem.” And not least–“I hate feeling old.”
