Overall morning mood: Woke up feeling pretty damn good! We fucked twice before getting out of bed at 9am. Best way to start the day. After lounging in bed so late, I was just too antsy to rest, so I went to the gym for a short run and stretch. As my feet hit the ground, I was up and at it and ready to go. I am glad that today was the last day of the active recovery week.

Notes: Class was taught by Gretchen at the Rosedale CorePower. Class was great, as usual! It was fun to go with Jess. I always enjoy going to workouts with her. Gretchen puts on a great class that is a work out, but also has an incredibly calming effect as well.
I am noticing strength building in my core. As we get to the bicycle kicks I am not quite to the point where I feel I can do straight leg kicks with the twist, but I am past the point of just holding my knees above my hips while just keep my calves parallel to the ground. I extend the legs, but in a slow and controlled fashion.
Gretchen adjusted me while I was in pigeon. It felt like she squared my hips while simultaneously putting pressure on my back. The stretch felt amazing and deep. Something that is difficult to accomplish in the position by yourself.
I can’t say that I learned anything in particular today. I was doing my best to just focus on breathing.
I felt my head space was great today, class seemed to fly. I could’ve practiced for another a couple of hours easily it seemed. Thanks Gretchen for spending an hour with us. Infinite Love & Gratitude!
The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in.

The Corner of 8th & Insanity: The ego is complicated. To be brief about our conversation last night. It is your ego that takes offense, feels slight or unappreciative, as a result of how it receives and twists words. Step back, and breathe. The ego self centered that always wants to enlarge itself. The ego is not you. The more you relax, the easier it will be to feel through situations. There is absolutely very little reason to get legitimately upset. Be the Calm.
Different people in your life, evoke different emotional patterns. But it is your ego that attaches to frustration, anger, and resentment. You are conscious enough to know when these thoughts and feelings start to present themselves. Continue to work on letting them go. While gratitude is important, so is compassion and understanding. Nobody is going to think like you do, nor have the same life experiences as you. So, again…compassion. All it takes is understanding that they are where they are, and that is where they are supposed to be. They are walking their path and that is their choice. Not yours. There is no shortage of love. Apathy is a self-imposed illusion that you can drop the moment you allow yourself to open up.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison [the delusion of separateness] by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. - Albert Einstein
Realize that destructive patterns are a result of inner suffering. It is a vicious cycle as you tend to treat others how you feel about yourself. It is imperative that you allow compassion to shine through. Compassion allows you to be understanding and love regardless. By connecting and understanding to other’s suffering, know that you too have been there and could very easily be back in the same boat. There is no room for apathy in you. Everyone is deserving of love and happiness.
