“To have the courage to

~ The Lost Writings of Wu Hsin translated by Roy Melvyn
Sit with this a while and see what comes up for you…
Bringing our awareness to the beliefs that we hold, and usually take for granted, is the first step in our personal growth and spiritual self inquiry. When we look inwards and question our thinking and assumptions, it opens up new perspectives and gives us the opportunity to learn about what has been unknown…. or what may never be discoverable in this life.
This venture into the unknown is a courageous path because the ego-mind will be alert for any conflicting views or threats to its long held position. The ego holds on to those beliefs that have become our certainties about life. It can keep us rigid, stubborn, critical and damning, or simply safe and stuck.
The choice is ours. To embrace the new or hold on to our certainties.
To those on the path of Yoga teacher training, take courage as you embrace what is beyond belief.
