Standing At the Edge


This morning, I was engaged in ardha chandrasana (Half-Moon Pose). As I stood strongly with right foot pressed into the ground, my body hanging perpendicular with left leg suspended at right angles to my anchor leg, and left arm thrust vertically into the air, I found that delicate point in which I leaned back. In that moment, if I leaned back too far, I would’ve fallen on my back. Yet, I swung open just enough to maintain my balance yet to go deeper into the pose. I got to the edge. …

Our immediate reaction when we get to the edge is to pull back. Yet, if we trust ourselves enough, … if we have faith in that which brought us to the edge in the first place, … we discover that we can go deeper into it than we ever thought possible. …
