The Savasana SolutionAug 18, 2021
It’s the a-ha that answers the question we have been asking ourselves.
It’s the bright idea that floats effortlessly to the surface of our awareness.
It’s the creative solution to a problem that arises seemingly out of nowhere.
How many times have we heard or experienced this? The answers we seek come after we have let go of all effort.
Psychologists might give one explanation for this, productivity specialists another. But yoga has a particular take on how this phenomenon works.
In yoga, our mind is seen not only as our faculties of questioning, thinking, analyzing, reasoning, ruminating, and so on. Yoga recognizes there is also an aspect of our mind that's a conduit for our inner wisdom.
When we disengage from solution-seeking part of our mind, the busyness of our mental chatter settles. Internal space clears. Then, as if silently summoned from the depths of our being, the voice of deep knowing can emerge, precisely because we have made ourselves available to hear what it has to say.
