Eagle Wisdom

"Not my circus, not my monkeys" - Old Polish Proverb as quoted on Facebook.

I'm back!  Had a great time in Vancouver BC and received a 50 hour certification in Yin Yoga from Bernie Clark author of the Complete Guide to Yin Yoga.

Vancouver is a welcoming, clean, green town.  I stayed and studied on Granville Island attached to the mainland of Vancouver city.  An island within a big city.  The studio is on a pier that looked out over the bay.  One morning during our Yin class, I was looking out the window and saw a bald eagle soaring over the water.  Effortlessly he flew with only an occasional flap of wings.  He was present in the moment and focused on his flight and probably looking for breakfast in the water below.  Relaxed in knowing he was in the flow.

In total contradiction to the eagles demeanor, three pigeons flapped behind trying to catch up with the eagle.  Maybe they were trying in vain to chase him away.  They flapped and fluttered and changed formations but they could never catch up with him.  He always stayed just out of their reach, without any effort I might add.  The eagle didn't seem to even notice the pigeons at all.  The pigeons were totally fixated on getting the eagle out of their territory.  They struggled in vain against the natural occurrence of things.  The eagle was serene and peaceful, oblivious to the distractions around him.  Focused mind, just like meditation. 

This scene was the perfect metaphor for the lesson I was about to learn.  Bernie Clark is an incredible educator, excellent at conveying information in an easily accessible manner.  I learned so very much especially about bone growth, anatomy and physiology and the principles of Yin yoga.  He also touched upon healing techniques of the East and West.  I got a great education in all.  The man actually IS a rocket scientist formerly employed by NASA!  I kid you not!

Promise Of Love

~~  SOMETIMES WE NEED TO LEARN TO LET GO OF THE NASTY, ENVIOUS OR TOXIC PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES.  SOMETIMES THE LESSON WE NEED TO LEARN IN A GIVEN SITUATION IS NOT TO TAKE ON ANOTHER PERSON'S PROCESS, UNDERSTANDING FULL WELL THAT IF AND WEN WE DO, WE ARE JUST DELAYING OUR OWN DESTINY AND ALL OF THE POSITIVE ENERGY THAT WE HAVE TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD.  - KAREN BERG  ~~

This is often my own procrastination.  It's just so darn easy to focus on someone else's  stuff.  The answers for another are always so clear.  Yet for myself, I could spin around forever before dealing or deciding.   I focus on others to avoid dealing with my own issues and situations in the present moment.  From my own upbringing, I have a strong need to correct and control the injustices I see in the world around me.  I wallow in a great sense of righteousness, perceiving that I have been so wronged by the world.  Being an intuitive and seeing clearly a way to assist others also adds to my shortcoming.  A gift always comes with a challenge.  I have worked very hard at only offering advice when I am asked and only stepping in when a hand is outstretched.  Some days standing back almost kills me.  But I have learned everybody has to grow in their own way.  Everyone has their own lessons to learn in their own way and time.  It's so not up to me.
