Wisdom & Fearlessness

Last night, I witnessed my Yoga Two class use their ever-present deep wisdom while fearlessly balancing on their hands! It's a wonderful class theme that enlivens & empowers students. In our early years, we are often fearless - even reckless. As we move through the decades, we tend to become fearful. We hesitate (and sometimes for very good reasons) to back flip off the high dive, bungee jump, or pull out into on-coming traffic. The benefit of having quite a few decades of life behind us is that we are not just smart - we are wise. And if we balance it just right, our wisdom enables us to be fearless.
