This incident reminded me how often we take our eating for granted...eating our food mindlessly. I came very close to eating a spider and not even knowing it! (Not that it would have hurt me!) In our yoga practice we learn to focus on our bodies and our breath. But yoga does not end when we roll up our mats. The same focus we use on our mats, is used in our daily lives...focusing on all that we do. However, focusing on all we do, is a growth process. Each day we work on it, some days better than others. The spider in my sandwich reminded me that I was not very focused and brought me to a place of re- examining my focus in life.
Please share your stories of the challenges to focus in life on and off your mat or chair.
