Blossoming

by Janet Arnold -Grych

 

In the beginning,

With each unraveling of the mat,

We are anxious to add to our garden.

To gather the beautiful buds,

And coax each asana to open quickly.  

Feel the dirt we stand,

Sometimes for the first time,

Connection earth to muscle and muscle to sky,

The energy of an immense linage

Pulsing with promise.

But as the pose settle,

As we settle,  

We find that yoga's true gift is not about more

But less.

The outline of the poses remain the same.

Yet when the space between is fed,

When ease replaces expectations, 

When patience replaces petals,

We find that the asanas are no longer  

About holding on,   

But letting go.

And in that release,

Without judgement or force to impede,

Breath floods in,

Releasing the mind and freeing the heart,

Through yoga,

We find

That core of serene nothingness,

And learn that in letting go,

we gain everything.
