Practice, and ALL is coming

{Koundinyasana B | Side-Crow, Split-Variation B}:
After weeks of preparation, opening, strength- and confidence- building, and daily practice, I can finally say that I’ve “mastered” this pose.
Which, ultimately, after the ego has been removed, means [absolutely NOTHING].
At all. And it never will.
Nor should it.


Because, really, why would it? It is nothing but an inconsequential yoga pose.


…Yet, even so, I have worked hard to master this pose in my practice, and I therefore feel a sense of accomplishment tonight. And this is because, as a student that operates with only one functioning pectoral muscle, I have had to work extra hard, and in a different way, to tune into the unique needs of my physical and mental bodies and acquire the strength, balance, and flexibility that is required to achieve this pose, for me.


And this, {THIS} is why I love {this} practice.


It is a beautiful paradox.


Because, on the one hand, it matters not. Nothing about it matters. Yet, on the other, when practiced daily, really, truly, and at the deepest levels beyond asana, it will transform your entire life.


…How wildly tricky and magical is that!?
