I remain on that verge, virtually no different than I was just moments ago... except that I feel a tiny bit closer to the endlessly profound wisdom of the great ones.
Yoga, as a physical practice, teaches me to focus my attention, with great detail, on what I'm doing with my physical body and why... through which I develop a greater understanding of my physical abilities and limitations. The result of practice yields a skillful focusing of my attention.
That skillful focusing of attention profoundly affects how I feel on the inside... it yields an empowering ability to notice and subsequently choose where I place my attention. As a result of practice, I notice that the quality of my attention is less distracted by the bullshit and able to dwell on the things that matter most.
That ability to skillfully focus my attention and choose where I place it -- THAT is profoundly insightful.
What gets your attention, grows... in other words, the grass is always greener where you water it.
Our attention is the most precious thing we have to give... it is the seed for everything of substance; thoughts, words, actions, results, belief systems, culture, society.
If you are to place your attention more skillfully on the things that matter most, just imagine how that could affect the day-to-day world YOU live in...
Stop imaging. Start practicing.
