Author F. Scott Fitzgerald once said,
"The test of a first-rate intelligence
is the ability to hold two opposed ideas
in the mind at the same time,
and still retain the ability to function."
Honestly, it’s difficult for me sometimes to allow for mystery in the teaching. Life has so much uncertainty as it is - we’re comforted when the story we’re being told is tied up in a neat little 🎁.
But - it’s not. Life is not so precise - and for that matter, neither is the practice. 🔮This week in training, we’ve been exploring the #negativespace
- the pause, the invitation for the student’s interpretation, the poses that are not one-size-fits-all, and the silence. Mysteries and #paradox
are the most intriguing, inspiring and ultimately truthful parts of our lives.
