Yoga teaches us to balance our body, and in turn our mind will be more balanced and…in turn, our Spirit will be the leader instead of our silly ego.
I have been cleansing for a while now. Eating very clean and staying away from alcohol. This week I have not stuck to the cleanse as strictly as my body would have liked. I went to a concert, The Avett Brothers, on Friday and I had a few beers. This threw me so off balance that the next day I took a 3 hour nap. Ick. Today, I had a fantastic brunch with salmon cake benedict. Yum. I also had a delicious strawberry lemonade mimosa. This has not made me feel bad at all. Now I am drinking fresh juice of a tart apple, spinach and carrot. I feel balanced, I feel healthy, I feel fine.
I guess my point is this – don’t eat or drink EVERYTHING you want, because your silly ego will say “go ahead and have another” but eating mindfully, in a yogic way, will help you feel balanced and healthy. Having one mimosa at Sunday brunch is OK. The yogis would approve.
PS – The Avett Brothers was possibly one of the best shows I have ever seen – and I’ve seen a lot. Anybody want to guess how many? I don’t even know the exact number…but we can see who comes closest to my best guess. 🙂
