Weekly Intention: Grateful


Be grateful and embrace the ordinary, this week…


Notes/Thoughts

“There are no ordinary moments. There is always something going on.”
– The Peaceful Warrior

This week’s question is “How… can you embrace the ordinary, today?”

So, let’s start by defining, ‘embrace the ordinary…’

embrace the ordinary
/əmˈbrās/T͟Hē/ˈôrdnˌerē/
saying

1. To hold close, accept, breathe in…the commonplace.

Let’s continue by defining ‘grateful…’


grateful
/ˈɡrātfəl/
adjective

1. Thankful with a genuine smile.


How can you embrace the ordinary, today?

  • Notice color, texture, light and shadow…
  • Notice shape and form…
  • Notice a smile.
  • Notice fire and water…lakes, streams, and sunsets.
  • Sit by a river.
  • Appreciate a deep, cleansing breath, a movement.
  • Engage in conversation.
  • Do something you love and really enjoy it!
  • Look around, “there’s always something going on…”

Ask yourself, “How can I embrace the ordinary, today?”
Then live from the question and see what unfolds…

If you’re feeling ungrateful…

  • If you’re feeling ungrateful for housing, live in a tent for a week!  Make sure you’re safe!
  • If you’re feeling ungrateful for cars or public transportation, for instance, walk everywhere for a week!
  • If you’re feeling ungrateful for food, do a liquid fast for three days!
    C
    onsult a doctor, first!
  • If you’re feeling ungrateful for money, stop spending money for an entire week or month! Buy only necessary things! 
  • If you’re feeling ungrateful for a friend, be alone for a week!

If you’re feeling ungrateful for something, or someone, create a scenario where – when it’s over, you’ll feel grateful.

Be grateful and watch as great things happen!

About The Yoga Book

The Yoga Book is a personal yoga diary! It is a book for your thoughts and experiences, after a yoga class. Often creative ideas, solutions to problems and powerful insights are revealed to you – write them down! Do you have a creative idea? Write it down! Do you have a favorite posture? Sketch it! Do you have a favorite class or instructor? Take notes! Use it to determine your favorite style of yoga or enhance your practice. 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.”
