The push-up plank is our ‘pose ofΒ reflection‘.

In order to hold it for 3, 4, 5 or more minutes – with good form – you must look deeply into your own mind.

If you’re afraid to do that, you will fall down.

You must be with your thoughts.

You must breathe.

You must allow whatever comes up to do soΒ without attempting to suppress it.

When you do this, you train your mind, and change your body.

As Joseph Campbell said, “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek the most.”

ReflectionΒ is this week’s intention.

As I mentioned in thisΒ Monday’s House of Flexibility, you must ask yourself:

Who are you? How did you get here? What took place in order for you to arrive here, today, to make you who you are?

And remember: our reflections are always made through our own personal lens of perception. A pair of ‘self-colored glasses’, if you will.

If we’re not honest about the fact that we are wearing them, then truth will remain blurry.
