Weekly Question:  How… can you ‘give up’ interpretation?

Weekly Intention: Acceptance

Daily Affirmation: I accept it.


“Accept everything, just the way it is…”
– Miyamoto Musashi

This week’s question is “How can you ‘give up’ interpretation?”

So, let’s start with defining ‘give up…’

give up
phrasal verb

1. To stop thinking something (in this case).

Ex: She accepted her decision, and gave up her interpretation about it.

Let’s continue with defining ‘interpretation…’


1. The act of defining, labeling or explaining something (as good or bad).

Ex: She contemplated the incident without interpretation and decided it was simply “what happened.”

And let’s not forget “acceptance…”


1. Something accepted as suitable.

Ex: She accepted her reasons as suitable.

How can you ‘give up your interpretation,’ today?

  • Give up interpretations…
    Notice when you’re labeling something as “good” or “bad,” and simply
    say to yourself, “This is what happened.”  
  • Be neutral! 
    Examine a situation from every angle…examine the facts and circumstances, and if you have to consider it, as we often do, simply say, “This was supposed to happen for the greater good.”
  • Take action, if you’re motivated!
  • Feel your feelings. 🙂
  • Encourage others to give up their judgments…
  • Remind yourself, “I am free!”

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

Weekly Notes

Notice… if you’re judging yourself ~ for “judging,” and simply say, “Oh, I’m judging myself.” 🙂  Because allowing yourself to “be” can lead to higher states of consciousness and higher states of consciousness can be fun!

About The Yoga Book

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.”
