Simple Man #1
I’m a simple man
For me skill in action is found in my asana practice.
Virtue, beauty, and truth are also found there
within my body on my mat in solitude.
If I don’t find the nobility and dignity of my person there, in this pose, this gesture, this breath, I will not find these elsewhere.
Big ideas remain just that
-- big fictions in my head--
until I wrestle them into manifestation in the smallest instances
when I practice.
Practice is everything, holds everything, reveals everything to me.
Practice is life or death.
I conduct it in deadly earnest.
Ecstasy is mine there in my asana only... I am a simple man and I don’t look for more or expect to find what I am looking for anywhere else.
Asana Vidya Ki Jai!
Try to tell me otherwise and I stopper up my ears like Nandi does when anyone utters a word against his beloved Shiva.
