Woo-SAHHH . . .That moment
Then you leave the studio, the ashram, the practice hall, the comfort of your own home. A little perturbation arises. Your spiritual practice is strong: you can do marathon sessions of meditation. Your Qigong practice is not just a series of randomly sequenced set of movements: you feel the energy flowing as you direct it. Your pranayama is expansive, full, focused and complete. The seamless intertwining of Puraka (Inhalation), Abhyantara Khumbaka (Full Inhale Hold), Rechaka (Exhalation), Bahya Khumbaka (Full Exhale Hold) occurs effortlessly. Then you leave the studio, the ashram, the practice hall, the comfort of your own home. A little perturbation arises. Someone does not signal there turn in traffic. The barista does not quite season your latte in the manner to which you have grown accustomed. A child shows disrespect toward the parent (or your child shows disrespect toward you). It is at these times that your practices must be part of your being. You must not allow your mind to wander, to become agitated. . . . You must come (back) to a Woo-SAHH moment.
