Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hannukah, or Happy Kwanzaa. Or whatever other holiday floats your boat this time of year. Although I no longer consider myself a Christian, I do celebrate Christmas since I was raised Christian and family traditions around the Christmas Holiday.
I taught my last "community" class at 3Sisters at least on Friday nights because it will conflict with my Sober Yogi class I teach at Soul Stretch in Westlake. I also taught my weekly Fitworks class as well as subbing on Wednesday night. I am now over 50 hours of teaching since getting certified. Still have a long way to go as a Yoga instructor but so much better than when I was first certified. Still need to find my voice in terms of expressing and talking about themes. Well themes with a spiritual bent anyway.
Also watched the Browns win, by a miracle, win their first game of the season. It felt like a playoff win even though it'll probably hurt us in the draft. Then Ken, George, Arisa and I went to see Rogue One on Christmas Eve. Elly arrived at 8 in the morning on Christmas day, the best Christmas present possible! I will post separately about our Christmas indulgences.
Welcome to this week's Tao Te Ching verse. See here for what this is all about.
- Verse 24
- He who stands on tiptoe
- doesn't stand firm.
- He who rushes ahead
- doesn't go far.
- He who tries to shine
- dims his own light.
- He who defines himself
- can't know who he really is.
- He who has power over others
- can't empower himself.
- He who clings to his work
- will creat nothing that endures.
- If you want to accord with the Tao,
- just do your job, then let go.
