Redefining “openness”

A refined definition of being "open" occurred to me while in yoga class today, lying in Supta Baddha Konasana, reclined cobbler's (or bound angle) pose. Being open does not necessarily mean being open to absolutely everything. It may mean being open to the realization that you prefer NOT to do certain things. It's part of the willingness to allow this realization to flow in and to learn to trust the truth of your own experience.

    Hi Lisa
    That is so true. Often we are locked into our daily realities, be it a job or raising kids or looking after elderly parents that we don't make the time to be open to new possibilities. Our daily routines simply do not allow that but I think everyone has a few slivers of time every day to just stop and think and reflect and allow openness to manifest. Thanks for another great post.
