How Goofing Off Can Lead To Great Things:
ONE DAY IN YOGA CLASS . . . My mind began to wander. We were in the middle of a LONG "downward-dog". I started thinking about how adorable it is when a dog does its stretches. I began to picture a big doofy dog in my head waking up and doing a sun salutation routine. "What else would this dog's day look like?"
For the rest of yoga class, I daydreamed about noble dog's daily routine. Then we neared the end of class and closed our eyes for Shavasana. Laying on the mat with my eyes closed I could perfectly visualize the character of Digger the Dog in my mind. What would his journey look like and where would he end up in the end? I thought of a lesson I had learned countless times. Even though routines can be good, sometimes when the unexpected happens, we can change for the better. I thought of the long traditions of meditations in caves. How sometimes going inside, into the dark, we can find ourselves and our light... and also... Dogs are SUPER ADORABLE!!!
