What is you condition when you wear your yoga teacher said, “Open your chest?” in a yoga or meditation class.
To me this means that: there is a certain effort that I should make to be open to the phenomena that is happening around me, that it is arising and passing away.
It is not only about lengthening your chest and stretching the muscle of your chest and shoulder. It is beyond that.
I realize that, when I want to free my breath, I must too create freedom for myself.
This freedom of observation without reaction. The freedom to stay within my awareness. And freedom to express what I have in mind, without interfering with someone else’s conditioning.
Our life is tough one. What does it means?
If you think that being grateful is tough. Then yes, I agree. You have a tough life. And I am not blaming you. Because it is not easy to be grateful and just accept what is given. It is tough to not being greedy.
It is said that, “This is just the action of a Nobel one.”
So effort is needed. Desire is needed. Awareness is needed. The right view and right understanding is needed. Just like all other muscle in our body, the eyes too needed to be trained. To be able to see beauty and kindness in everything.
