Observations from my yoga mat

Momentum

Today’s word was momentum. We used it in our yoga practice to make some big movements and to allow for some continuing movement. At one point, it was suggested that we move like a pendulum. You get the idea.

In addition to some planning for an upcoming trip, I began thinking about how some events in my life take on their own force somehow. I start out with an activity or event and it becomes so much more. This certainly relates to my quilting, on a slower scale. Even though I have been focusing lately on UFO completion, there still seems to be quite a series of inevitable steps to undertake. These pithy thoughts came after I realized (privately) how closely a new set of postures resembled the Time Warp. This same sense of inevitability even appeared in the audio book we have been listening to, the character was overtaken by events somehow.

I believe momentum can be a good thing so long as the initial path was well considered. Otherwise, it just is an invitation to being dragged along in unintended directions.
