It’s All Yoga
(Simple but not easy)
I don’t think people understand.
It being trend and only trend
They don’t exactly know
What they are doing.
Some think yoga is for beauty.
Some think flexibility.
Some think health of body,
The list goes on, with vanity foremost.
Yoga has an aim or two or three or four.
Surely, there is more to understand than four, for
Yoga aims at understanding
On a level corresponding to the tangible,
Intangible, (what we call spiritual)
Which means total, total, total, ALL!
Yoga is a vehicle
For every single thing you do in mind and torso
To amplify the total you.
Focus on your fingers when you touch, grab, push.
Focus on toesies when you lie in bed.
Focus on the brain parts in your you-know, head
When quiet, worried, hurried, rushed,
Anxious, peaceful, doubtful, ‘fraid:
The list goes on and on.
Focus, focus, focus find.
Nowadays they call it mindfulness
It has always been.
Since everything you do contains
A means to find the who you are,
Defining what you’re headed for,
Ought to go and ought to know.
Is oh so simple -
But not easy.
Don’t be queasy about living.
It’s all take and it’s all giving.
Make the most of it.
Toast to it.
Make a yoga of this tool kit.
