“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!
