Daily Question: Are you vulnerable?
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.”
– Brene’ Brown
Are you vulnerable?
Let’s start by defining vulnerability.
1. Capable of being hurt: open to moral attack; criticism, or assault.
Vulnerability is often a good thing.
Are you vulnerable? Can you be vulnerable?
Check out these questions…
- Can you ask for help?
- Can you listen to another’s point-of-view with compassion?
- Can you admit it when you make a mistake?
- Can you tell the truth?
- Can you open your heart?
- Can you walk away and be o.k., when no one’s listening? Can you forgive…?
- Can you sit in stillness for one minute, without sound?
- Can you walk away from a fight if it isn’t warranted; especially if there’s another way?
- Can you slow down and let go…?
- Can you do something that you think is worthwhile, even though you’ve never done it before, knowing it might be difficult or challenging at times, and knowing you’ll probably make mistakes?
Ask yourself, how can I be vulnerable today…?
Then, live from the question, and see what unfolds…
Should a nation be vulnerable? When…? Why…?
…If Aaron Alexis, 34, a military contractor from Texas, had allowed himself to be vulnerable, for instance, prior to the shooting at the Washington Naval Yard… if he had allowed himself to ask for help, again and again, had gotten help, had looked for answers, or had simply walked away when no one was listening, accept it and fought the injustice through customary channels… would today have happened?

Imagine what could happened if we all focused on the intention this week! The purpose of focusing on an intention, or question is to practice it, so it can be called upon always and forever.
Remember, everyone is on their own path at their own pace, and we all have the same value. Also, while examining the intention and answering the question, make sure you’re not hurting yourself or anyone else.
Please practice yoga safely, and pause or stop when you need to pause or stop. Listen to your body! Also, please consult a doctor before engaging in the practice of yoga. The Yoga Book blog, it’s affiliates, etc. do not take any responsibility for injuries, actions etc. which may occur as a result of doing yoga, focusing on the question/intention, or doing “Today’s Class.” Also, The Yoga Book blog is not intended to be a substitute for professional help. It is simply information based on experience and some research. Remember, you are making your own choices ~ following your own path, your own heart. ‘Tis up to you, what you do, and your sole responsibility. It is also your responsibility please, to seek the professional help you may need in dealing with the issues that may arise in your life.
…And we all need a little help, sometimes 🙂
The Yoga Book
“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with a Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.”
