“Practice Makes Present”


- NOW moment
- Marvin Ong’s Bday Party
- My past, I struggled to have the discipline to stick with something that I was not immediately good at.
- For example, snowboarding.
- If you read a book a week on your subject, in 5-7 years, you will be a world expert in that discipline.
- The journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step.
- But that can be daunting, to look towards that far goal
- But practice is not just about getting to Mastery. thats a trap!
- Yoga- the whole point is Practice.
- Practice in the yoga sense is liberating. Whatever is happening in the Now IS the experience
- the Journey is the Destination
- Marvin Ong “when I first started, I practiced to be the best. Now, I practice to get present.”
- “Practice makes Present”
- It is in the NOW that life is experienced.
- Hugnation is an example of “practice makes present.” We’re not trying to get anywhere. It is an exercise in becoming present.

- Halcyon flows!

“A Visit From Self Doubt” & “Manage Momentum” Hug Nation 11.06.12

Amidst a perfect weekend, I got caught up in suffering thoughts. How? Why? And how did I shake myself loose.

“Decide to make yourself Happy” is easier said than done. But what it really requires is learning how to change mental direction quickly and MANAGE MOMENTUM!

Yoga Thoughts – Hug Nation 4.24.12

TOPIC: “Yoga Thoughts” & “Tension. Release. Tension. Repeat.”
Hugnation 4/24

– NOW moment.
– I’ve been putting a lot of energy into spiritual growth and expression, but not as much into my physical development
– Part of being a human being is the gift of physical being in the world
– Yoga is not a collection of postures, that is ONE form of yoga.
– Types of Yoga http://www.abc-of-yoga.com/beginnersguide/whatisyoga.asp
– I am in no way an authority on yoga.
– beefcakey pictures on facebook.
– Yoga is a personal practice. a gift to yourself. subtle magical reminders to be present. Tuning into the experience of the now.
– The theory behind yoga resonates with exactly the things I’ve been talking about on Hugnation for years.
– Concept of a “practice”. There is no finish line for yoga, no end goal. Everyone has a practice.
– when you stop seeing your life as a process of getting places, and instead see it as a series of tasks at hand, a practice… it reduces stress anxiety.
– “life is a practice”
– the practice of yoga helps to remind us of the practice of life. life is struggle. a series of challenges we figure out.
– “obstacle” implies that something is in the way of a goal. if you change your mindset so life is a practice, there is no such thing as obstacles.
– Human consciousness is duality. God consciousness is unity. Life IS the rollercoaster.
– be present, have integrity, align with love.
– you always have a choice.
– we are characters in one another’s play.
