Are you stressed out? From my studies, I've learned that stress is our response -- the difference between what is actually happening and what we believe should be happening. It is 100% dependent upon our conditioning. Stress can also be defined as a perception that our resources are being tapped or depleted. What's fascinating to me is that the ways in which we struggle in our asana practice is often related to what's going on in our life. One of the things I continue to work on is learning to stay & pay attention - having a willingness to be where I am and put down notions of what's supposed to happen. Paying attention changes the experience.
