The most amazing print given to me by my friend Ben Milch (blurring near the edges is only because of the scan).

The most amazing print given to me by my friend Ben Milch (blurring is only because of the scan).

Yoga is about being unattached, completely self-reliant and independent of outside things, situations, and people to make you happy.  In yoga, we pull away from these exterior fixations to move deeper and deeper into our true selves, our true bliss and ultimate steadiness of being.  In trying to achieve this non-attachment, our priorities switch and our fixations change.  I realize I have in some areas of my life, released my reliance on the exterior, however in terms of my yoga practice, I have become more and more attached.  Granted, being attached to taking class everyday isn’t the worst of attachments, but it does cause me dis-ease whenever I am not able to take class.  This summer, as I have been trying to travel as much as possible, I have had to skip class certain days and the effect has shown me how very attached I am.  I get so frustrated, upset, and unable to maintain any sense of composure when I can’t make it to class.  I have to get over this, for the sake of maintaining some mental stability.  I can still love and cherish my practice, but I can’t rely on it to make me happy which is essentially what I’ve slipped into recently.
