I was doing my routine of pranayama and meditation this evening and suddenly realized that there was an energetic dynamic playing out inside me during this process — I sensed that I was healing myself and growing simultaneously — in body, mind and spirit. These two currents had to take place together to potentiate each other. I’ve been thinking about how much time I spend on my yoga, breathwork and meditation. I worried that it was diverting time from doing more creative work — my writing, my web sites (greatly neglected, both), reading, exploring ideas. But the time that I spend in yogic endeavors means that the quality of the time that I have for the rest of my waking hours is better, more intense, more grounded, more focused, more at ease, more fulfilling. It also gives a simplicity and release to my life.
