Language can be funny
Everyone appreciates the absurdity of a good oxymoron (Hell's Angels; jumbo shrimp). Sometimes, more subtle. In Tarot, the Death card doesn't portend physical decline but rather a deep and meaningful rebirth, and the Fool is far from stupid.
We understand the dunce cap and the thinking cap are the same, right? In yoga we begin by taking off our thinking caps (dunce caps) so we can be clear in our minds and our hearts without the noise.
Stop thinking, stop judging, stop plotting, stop chastising, stop buffering, stop recalibrating, stop complaining, stop expecting, stop doubting, stop justifying, stop assuming.
And now we can begin to notice...
energy moving through our bodies
that within us which is not a construct of our thoughts
peace relief release acceptance
maybe sometimes even bliss
