Always rushing. Time to slow it down.

Often I notice we (the class) are always so quick, or maybe eager, to ask questions of Bharath. We want to know the answer ‘now’, rather than trust that he will give us/tell us everything we need to know, when we need to know it. Take, for example, the Kriya we are doing tomorrow - Shanka Prakshala. Yes, this is something that is very new to most of us, and we all have a lot of questions about what to expect. Why do we need to bring a towel? What happens if we need to go to the toilet during the sequence etc.? Rather than wait to be told, which is the whole point of the class – to explain all of this to us – we always rush to get this information from him. I’ve noticed Bharath often slows us down by saying, “I’ll get to that in a moment,” which is what got me thinking. I know for myself, I am always thinking, “what next…”, trying to know everything so I can be properly prepared, or don’t miss something (in general I’m talking now). But it’s literally only in the last few minutes that I realized this is where most of my stress comes from. A need to ‘have to know’ rather than just be. Let things happen when they happen. Trust the process as I was once told.  Trust that I will know, or be shown what I need to know, when the time is right. Definitely something I need to work on.

Namaste xx
