Day 17

prana /pra·na/ (prah´nah) [Sanskrit] in ayurvedic tradition, the life force or vital energy, which permeates the body and is especially concentrated along the midline in the chakras.

I am kicking mad!  I should not watch or listen to too much news!  The things people do?!  I felt the anger driving my yoga poses, squeezing me tighter and longer.  I could feel the same fire that keeps me up at night sometimes, the fire I try to ignore that makes me want to drive too fast, or argue just to argue and win.  That fire drenched me in sweat and strengthened my muscles and wore me out!  What a good feeling.  I topped it off with another sprint and plyometrics workout!  Grrr!

I have avoided this fire at times in my life b/c I feel it’s the fire that makes me walk on people and not slow down and listen, to myself or others.  Today I see it also as the driving force in my life that makes me get up and do the hard work and finish the job.  I have this fire in spades and I’ve been trying to ignore it or push it away.  I don’t have to do that.  I don’t have to fear it will burn me out or run over others, instead I can just put it to good use in completing projects and hard work outs.  Then I can go back to sleeping at night!  🙂
