How your resistance can push you into Balance.... By Neelam If there was one area of my life where I was negligent, not honoring my being, not determined or disciplined - that was my body. And although I knew cognitively that this is one aspect of my life that pulls me back (even health wise), I could not do much about it. There would always be tomorrow.... Walk: Ah... I'll start tomorrow! Yoga: Next week, after the travel! Dance: Maybe I'll join dance class this coming Navratri... this coming Navratri I am going to let go of my inhibition to dance.... All this guidance and all this inner chatter but no action... No implementation... The excessive traveling fatigued me.. The excessive multi tasking left no mental or physical energy in me—neither for self love and nor for honoring the body. Even getting a facial or a massage would feel like a chore... when will it get over? I could not enjoy it. I forgot my body... I ignored my body. I had forgotten about the wisdom of the body... of the feminine principle of embodiment. Or to put it succinctly—I could not embody it, in spite of knowing about this aspect. 17
