RESTLESS MIND

I have been feeling a little bit all over the place lately. I am not referring to my physical location here but to the going-ons inside my head... I can barely remember the last time I managed to do my morning meditation without the pesky to-do lists taking centre stage. Today was no different.

The mind chatter continued through the whole of my morning yoga session... Well, it finally dawned on me that I have clearly lost sight of the big picture and perhaps need to brush up on the basics. Why am I doing all this in the first place? 

Reluctantly, I dragged myself off the mat, picked up the book again and scheduled in some quiet time for reflection.

I am finding this nicely succinct sutra very reassuring: My mind needs to calm down and yoga is the tool for it, no doubt. The trouble is that whatever I am doing at the moment is not quite delivering the results.

Have I fallen into a rut? Do I need to rethink and refresh my practice? Or maybe I am going through a little rough patch and just need to keep working through it patiently? Or maybe I am overdoing the variety and need to simplify? Or maybe I am just over thinking this a bit?!! Honestly, I don't know, but I'll keep working on it!
