The one who asks questions doesn’t lose [their] way. – African Proverb

Everyday the media informs us of things they want us to know. But what about what you want to know? Do you ever have questions?

Be Curious

A lot of what holds us back from asking questions is fear. Here is the breakdown of what fear really is:

F – False
E – Experiences
A – Appearing
R – Real

The way to know what is real—thoughts, feelings, situations—is to ask questions. When I teach, I encourage people who have questions to ask them at any time during the practice. A lot of times, someone can feel uncomfortable in a position, but stay there because they think it’s what it should be. They will feel it in their body first, which triggers their mind and, still, they will not ask. Yes, there can be some challenges, but yoga (and life) can be less painful if we ask questions and become better informed.

Go Deeper

cratching at the surface doesn’t require much. You accept what people tell you and what they do. But to get to know them, you have to ask questions. To be assured of a situation or experience, you need to ask questions. Doing so will eliminate the tendency to make assumptions and will help you gain your way. It will also empower you to be an informed consumer, citizen and individual.

If questions come up—and they will—ask them while practicing yoga (and life). Join me on Wednesday nights.
