My yoga instructor, Cal, turned this song on at the end of my yoga class tonight. I was just coming out of my shavasana haze, and my fingers and toes were coming back to life. He told us that in America, yoga has become so much about fitness and self-improvement, and that we should return to a state of inward acceptance. It’s a shift in my mindset that I need to address and improve upon — sounds counter-productive, right? I just need to learn to live in a neutral state of being that can simply observe the world for a moment.
I know it’s not *cool* or *hip* or anything, but this song reminded me that I can find joy and beauty in the smallest of details — even those that are the most familiar and unassuming. I felt so happy and cradled in love.
