The New Student: On Beginnings

by Karen Cygnarowicz in Yoga

How do I begin? → There are some days we ask ourselves this question often. Find kindness in knowing that the question is enough. You have already arrived. Beginning then offers a day full of discovery, illumination, feeling, and flexibility. In seeking a life full of experience, it is generous to yourself, and to others, to wake with intent. Go through and gather all the good.

One way to begin is to breathe. We are always beginning.

One way to begin is to step back and look at the bigger picture. Ask questions. What inspires you to get out of bed in the morning? What do you find yourself daydreaming about most? What do you want? What is your path? How can you align your chosen path with what you want? These questions are the branches of our awareness. One way to begin is to reflect.

Meet yourself each breath.

One way to begin is to connect. On a walk through the neighborhood, there are many opportunities to connect. A neighbor working on her rose garden, or another walking their dog. Eye contact and smiling are universal moments to meet. Shake the dust of winter with gratitude to begin. One way to begin is to share.

One way to begin is to be yourself. Offer an hour to yourself to do something you’ve been daydreaming about. An hour of your time could change your life.

One way to begin is to be open.

 

You are the master of your own breath.
