reflect and absorb

Which made me reflect on progress and process. It seems in our culture, we are taught that progress is a straight path and if we stop on that path for a time, we are being idle, lazy or not moving forward. (Thank-you to industrialization and capitalism for teaching that to us!) 

This story can run deep for a lot of us, including myself. If we are always moving forward, when do we integrate where we've been or what we've done? When do we get to reflect and absorb?


This is an excerpt from this weeks newletter by Brea Johnson/Heart and Bones yoga. I always find them so inspiring and useful and these words spoke so deeply to me.
