At today’s practice, my teacher reminded us that during our practice and at any time, we have the power to transform ourselves. We are our own alchemist and can change our behaviour and attitude simply by focusing our thoughts and listening to our body.
Her words reminded me of another teacher who taught me the importance of the simple word yet. Conversations with her would go like this:
Me: I don’t think I can do that.
Her: you can’t do that … Yet
The word yet, can be added to the end of almost any sentence and is extremely powerful. I was reminded today that I’ve forgotten this simple technique. I’m not always positive/strong/happy… yet, but I think I’ll get there.
