Weekly Question: How can you be ‘blank…?’

Weekly Intention: Peace on Earth


Practice stillness, today…


Notes/Thoughts

“Sometimes simply by sitting, the soul collects wisdom.”
– Unknown

This week’s question is “How can you be ‘blank,’ today?”

So, let’s start by defining ‘blank…’

blank
/blaNGk/
noun

1. A space [your mind] to be filled.
2. The absence of obsessive thinking.


What is blank?

‘Blank’ is the opposite of ‘obsessive thinking.’

It is existant when a person experiences the moment, fully. 


Being Blank vs. Active Thinking 

Active thinking is necessary, at times, because it relates to problem-solving. In other words, active thinking serves a purpose, which is finding
a solution. It is problem-solving, or an examination of the pros and cons of a specific issue, for instance. 

You can set a time limit, for instance, while actively thinking: two hours, ten minutes, etc. If you do, the purpose of your thinking is finding a solution, because active thinking is finite, which means it has a beginning and an end. It is ‘critical thinking,’ which is a worthwhile kind of thinking…

However, it is important to note that active thinking…may not lead to a solution, right away, in which case, it is recommended you be ‘blank,’ or allow a solution to come to you organically. So if you don’t ‘have to’ make any decisions this week, then don’t…It’s a good week to be blank!


Tip: Meditate on an issue, then let it go, for now.

expression

“If you want to make peace… You talk to your enemies.”

The Yoga Book is also perfect for teacher trainings and yoga workshops! Every page has an inspirational quote, space for the date, style of yoga, and instructor’s name. It also has a glossary of classic yogas. Enjoy!


“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 an 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.”
