So so full.
There is an entire notebook filled from two weeks of study with my teacher. There is my heart. All I can do right now is sit with it in awe, deeply humbled, inspired beyond words by watching over and over his dedication to helping others and to passing on yoga. He works so hard, gives so much.
On the last day of the Intensive Manouso said, ok what are you going to do with having been here?
1) use it as a badge—brag about it?
2) make $ on it
3) steal it and pretend it’s yours?
Then he said, “I’ll tell you what you cannot do, you are not to die with this information. You are making a huge mistake if you hold onto it.”
It’s heavy. So much—to practice, study and contemplate. It will take many months (sometimes it takes years) to fully realize what’s been taught. Paying attention was the job these last two weeks, next, practice, then passing it on.
