How do you sense your body? How do you sense your body’s alignment? That depends on what you mean by “your body.” Proper asana is the alignment of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. As we come to sense the personal requirements for a comfort (physical), equipoise (emotional), and clear focus (mental) and then put that information to use, we open to door to shamatha, or peaceful abiding. This provides the stable ground upon which the physical body, emotions, and mind can integrate into a vibrational whole. From this balanced state we have access to the divine nature of our being and, from this vantage point, our body not only exists within an expanded space, it becomes one with that space. This week we are working on establishing such a balance. Happy meditating.
