In the beginning the self-practice just seemed to be a physical thing, trying to figure out where to do it, how much to do, and when I should do it. Oh, what the heck, stop worrying about all those things. Just do it! Now, I can just relax and pay attention to what I am feeling physically. Letting go and feeling the whoosh of the drop, whoa! now I am going up, up, up…whoosh, oops missed that one, oh well, will get it next time. On and on and around it goes. The more I practice the better I feel physically. The physicality of the practice makes my body parts happy (bad knees) and my heart sing with joy.
So, am I better? You bet I am – physically, mentally spiritually. Am I stronger? For sure – the foundations have been laid! Is there room to be better? Yes!
