Day 79

10:00 AM

"To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble..."

Step 10... Simply to be, more or less, perfect. What is being perfect...? It is you... Just be you... 

2:00 PM

"To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds..."

Eleven... One has to forget the words, most of the time they are empty... The words are just a product of our mind, a product of our small self. As they say in Zen: " As soon as you open your mouth you are wrong..." 
Talk with your actions instead, practice what you preach. Don't talk about the great energy within you, or how you feel this way or that way, or how you did this or that, just be all that... Become the energy itself, let it shine in and around you at all times, influence people around you without ever opening your mouth... Help without even trying to help... Learn to live through your ears, not your mouth... Listen, just listen... Then act...

11:00 PM

I can't stress this enough, I have to talk about it over and over again. The deeper I get into my practice, and into this journey, this feeling becomes stronger and stronger. Life really is a breath... Become aware of your breath, and your life will change completely. One single breath can change everything, it can change your entire yoga class. Your energy, attitude, motivation, changed with just one real breath... It happened to me twice now, I would start the class tired, without much energy, and then after just on or two complete breaths I would feel like climbing a mountain. I hate to use this word, but it is an amazing feeling...
However, you have to really breathe... Breathe so you feel like the inhale will never end, breathe so you can feel the air just filling up your whole body and going into the brain, breathe so you feel like laughing and crying at the same time... Inhale and exhale your entire life in one take... Only then you will feel it...
