The Aim

“Transformation has to take place.” Anyone who has seen the film, Enlighten Up, most likely remembers Mr. Iyengar screaming that into the camera. Just today I realized how much holding on is happening here. First I see it in myself, but I also recognize it in the others around me. I feel at the 6am start time, I see it on the streets, and over lunch. The overwhelming need to hold what is ours. To retain what we imagined we’ve gained and at every turn there is unfulfilled desire and attachment to outcome. Today in yoga sutra chanting study the teacher said, “that there is a joy in losing everything.” Over the next 11 weeks I’ll be attempting to let go so that I can experience a state of yoga, a state where transformation can take place.
