Why wouldn't we want to become more resilient? To not get sick, to heal faster and all around be stronger and more ready for anything to come our way... I used to think that this meant breaking myself down, pushing myself to an edge and then repairing. Well, what if we could be conscious of how much repair each expansion is going need? How expansive we can get from each time we hug in? I think we can if we are conscious to the measuring and keep refining it each time. To measure keep adjusting the effort and the surrender so you know how much to soften/let go/surrender and how much to boost the effort in the pose. We know how much is too much and we also know that often our boundaries are constantly changing so it is a constant practice to sew a new garment of being each moment in a balanced fashion.
PICTURE: This sculpture is named "Future Mutation".... from an artist who creates the deadliest and most resilient art in the world.... viruses.
