The word hate

Have you noticed how often you use the word Hate unconsciously? "I hate this hot weather" or "I hate those rude drivers " , or "I have Mondays"!

The word hate generates only that... HATE. Don't you think we have enough of that in our world. If I may, without coming off as a know it all, try to use another word such as "I dislike". It takes awhile to resonate but with effort, like anything in life you'll succeed.

Again taking a more Zen approach here.

I posted this because my 9 year old son always says hate and he's learned to find another word. I bought him a magnet for the frige that says; "Hate Free Zone".

I'm really happy today. I've been invited to teach in Santa Barbara, CA. This woman in class today says she has been looking all over SF for me. She practiced with me last year, loved my work and she found me this afternoon at one studio in the city. She wants me to be a guest teacher at her studio and she says I can stay in her... guest house! Love it!

If you've ever been to Santa Barbara, CA it's like the Riveria of the West Coast. This is some rich soil friends - it's a bit too rich for my blood. But I'm driving down for the experince, it should be quite nice. My guy is a bit jealous.... I can understand why.

I need a bit of pamering. I've taken care of all those lovelies in my world lately and it'a time for me to take care of myself.

I hate the word hate. I mean I dislike the word hate. I do hate the hot weather and rude drivers. I'm sorry I dislike the hot weather and rude drivers. You are right is so easy to say and we don't realize we are doing it. Hate to me is a strong word and depending on the way you say it could make it stronger. I do use "I dislike" or "I don't care for" but when I am with friends I fined myself using the word hate.

I don't practice yoga but I know a lot people that do and they are always trying to get me to start. I think because they are always working on me so I resist. I even went to see BKS Iyengar in NYC. Afterward my friends said to me so are going to start. Someday I will surprise them. There are times that I have to remind them that it is not how far you go it's how you go far.

Have a great trip.

I like to think there is a time and place for everything. When the time is right for you to take up yoga, you will. Your friends only want the best for you, but sometimes they can be a bit over zealous and come off as sounding pushy. Often under those circumstances, I recoil as well.

I've read that people beginning yoga often get bit by the "yoga bug" and they tell everyone around them to take it up. It's often best to keep your joy of the practice to yourself - humbly so and share it when the time is right without coming off as... pushy.

It's nice that you saw BKS Iyengar in NYC. He is often here in SF. I studied with SR Pattabhi Jois who is the founder of the Ashtanga yoga practice in Mysore, India - you know yoga flow or vinyasa. It's great that we still have these two men who are alive and such a strong force in the yoga world. Without these two men, yoga in the west would not be what it is today.

Thanks for your comments on that touchy word... Hate. I have experienced that here on AdultFriendFinder. One lady here has been very rude to me, hateful even. That is the reason I posted this blog

Wow, that was impressive. More so that it is such a "normal" thought that we take for granted. I have been trying to see the positive in everything. Despite having my apartment broken into and stuff stolen, I wrote a song and a came up with an idea for a screenplay - so something positive happened from a negative situation....

My car was broken into last year and my cd player was stolen. It was the second one in six months. I do have new one thanks to good insurance.

I like your energy, creative energy... I live on that as well. Keep going friend, would love to hear about your projects.

There does seem to be some hostility against you in some of you blogs. I enjoy and value what you have to say.

My buddies did get biting by the yoga bug. One thing that's good it not temporary it will always be part of their lives.

Tell me if I am wrong. I rock climb and appears that the people who rock climb are attracted to yoga and people who practice yoga want to get into rock climbing. The cloths are the same and you know it is all about the cloths..lol One other thing to lurer me in is that my friends say that yoga approved their climbing.

There is an clothing line named Prana. Prana is the breath, the life force within all of us and the 6th limb of the yoga practice. The clothing company makes clothes for..... climbing! Go figure. You should google Prana clothing company, the photo's are really far out.

Really funny that you mentioned climbing today. I took my son down to Mission rocks - indoor climbing here in SF just today. I'm just learning myself to climb, tying knots ect.... but yoga and climbing are totally parallel on many levels.

I was thinking of Prana when I said similar cloths. I do have my share of Prana cloths were I had to put a moratorium on buying more. I do like their photo's of people with amazing bodies climbing and in yoga poses. I'll try not to get too corny about cloths but I also like Patagonia. They have yoga, climbing and any other type of clothing for the active person. I like their environmental activism campaign. They have a store in SF I was there one time.

I do some volunteer work for a park systems outdoor adventure programs and kids do like to climb. They are fearless and pick up new skills easily.

I try to not get all caught up in the clothing lines/labels either, but I love the brochures for Prana. My partner has lots of men prana yoga clothes, there beautiful! I practice non-attachment to things in general. I live simply, not much around my place or closet to impress anyone. I like it that way. Not too much clutter.

I don't need the clothes really, but I'm out fitted nicely for teaching, I have to be.

I most admit, being a back packer and wilderness girl, I need the proper clothes and gear. So my partner and I do drop the bills for the right equipment. There are things you need when your out there, the wrong clothing and lack of gear... your screwed big time without them. I just recently drops nearly 3 bills for a gor-tex jacket by LaFuma. I love this jacket, black trench, nice lines. We had major rain this year out west and the jacket saved me. Okay, enough of this...LOL!
