SELF-STARTER

Yoga means
to unite

In yoga, the poses you see people doing in class or on photos are called asanas. The breathing exercises often not (visibly) exercised, are called pranayamas. One pranayama I practiced twice this week is Breath of Fire. It warms as well as wakes you up and activates the ability to focus.

Doing the exercise, I was reminded of our ability to be a self-starter. You don't need someone to light your fire. This exercise is a way to experience you can always be your own ignition, for endeavours small and large. Not saying you always should, of course.

CONSEQUENCES

To turn to know into to do
You need to feel what it takes

I read a story by reader R., who attended a talk by this man where he learned that to cross the bridge between knowing and doing you must experience a feeling. This is so tricky about climate change. We know, know, know, but until we're present enough to notice how we feel, we won't do.

PS I received additional suggestions to the above, too: patience and party.
