The Practice of Yuck Fou
“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
The practice of yoga
We always practice something
We always practice the way we are
The way we think and move
In a way, we always practice what we believe, what we believe we are.
To change, we must practice something different, like the way we act, react and respond to circumstances that surround us; This is a process of observation and experimentation.
I value my practice because it gives me a sense of consistency, a belief that I can improve.
Improve in relationship with the past, the past that I am still practising, because I still value it, and Believe in it.
It feels like being stuck, because some things change gradually, sometimes imperceptibly.
the future is habituated by the past, and the present looks to fast that I cant catch up.
There is a wish to practice something different, but my approach has never been to be radical quite opposite, the intention is been to integrate, so I can adapt and change slowly, but the slowly I go, the more I stop, I get distracted and I give up.
So for this practice, I want to experiment with the idea of continuous movement, visualising the constant pouring of water, no too fast nay too slow, no too agitated neither to rest.
Not to force anything, rather to shift the perspective of what I value, and see from another angle what I believe.
Like listening to the falling of the rain, by accepting the way it does, and if not… there is always the practice of Youk Fou.
