It's a consistent theme that runs through Avita Yoga on both the level of body and mind. We let the resistance come to the surface of awareness without judgment. The shapes reveal it to us in the body, and life shows it to us in the mind.

So I get upset about someone else's traffic violation "against me." Can I look at the upset without judgment? Can I hold it to the light and see that it's working against me and what I truly want? I want a better way. I want to know my Self as the source of eternal peace and happiness. This is our yoga--both goal and practice. Welcome and release all thoughts until none are left that keep us from the goal. You can (un)do it! :)
