sometimes we think that big efforts are required, but instead are small movements that bring big changes..keep the good work PETALIA.

Last summer I was working with a physical therapist about a neck issue. Some of the exercises he gave me seemed so minimal. However, he explained that even minimal movements trigger the muscles and activate them. Keep up your good and thoughtful work. You are an inspiration to me.

Thank you both for your meaningful responses. It helped me to read them. After a visit with a movement therapist friend of mine, I feel that I understand what is going on and how I might approach helping the healing. Amongst many things, she spoke about making tiny movements of a few inches compared to my usual few feet when doing lateral leg movements. Not only do I feel pain when I move my leg in the old way, but my hips move and my tail untucks....I thought my alignment had been good! I am astonished. Today at the gym I worked in front of the mirrors, very slowly and with minuscule movements. I tried to be hyper-aware of what my hips, shoulders, and spine were doing with every tiny change. Hard work. Slow work. Very much in the present moment work.

I know exactly what you are talking about. I have really stepped up my yoga practice in the last four months and it is making an enormous difference.... even with a less than satisfactory practice, the meditation at the end is indescribable, I read sometime ago, that even when you can't do the physical practice, reviewing the practice in your mind can bring many of the same effects...
Actually when you think about it, all we really have is the present!

Hi PETALIA, interesting thoughts, let me share with you two quotes I like very much:


“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
― Gautama Buddha, Sayings Of Buddha

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
― Buddha

These two quotes have helped me when I've felt lost. I myself I'm ok but when my dd has her panic and anxiety attacks," why does she deserve this" comes to mind, and I felt "I don't know how to deal with it". Living the present moment has helped for sure to overcome the situation.

Lying on a giant Fomentek bag of hot water, injured and trying not to succumb to lowness, I realize what an extremely powerful force my daily yoga practice has been for me these last two years. More than anything I have ever done, yoga has helped me enormously to be in the present. Right now, I see how important and consequential that is. After more than a decade of serious health difficulties, I really can't think too much about the future anyway and when I do things get quite hairy for me. Actually, when I think about the past, the loss of the life I once had and won't have again....To live in the present is essential for my sanity and I'm told it's generally a healthy place to be for everybody. I'm not so developed a person as to be able to be in the present without the use of my body, yet. That cliche of the mind-body connection is a true and thriving force in my world. Alas. I complain. Nonetheless, I imagine you all know what I mean and have had your own experiences with this. I would love to hear your thoughts.
