Weights & Meditation

On Wednesdays I teach a yoga class followed by meditation. Another teacher in the same facility teaches a weight class with small 2 & 1/2 pound weights. To not interrupt my class she leaves the cart filled with weights outside the door which I put away after class is over.

Yesterday as I was doing this, one of the students said quite seriously, "You are using weights in meditation class?"

I responded with a, "No" and laughed.

Then I thought about it further.... isn't that the truth?

So much of our suffering is based in the pains of our past. It IS our weight which creates our burdens.

So apparently we do use weights in meditation!

So drop your weights today and keep on moving on
Om Shanti
