Reflection on a verse from Bhagavad Gita

"As rivers flow into the ocean but cannot make the vast ocean overflow, so flow the stream of the sense-world into the sea of peace that is the sage. But this is not so with the desirer of desires".
Chapter 2 verse 70


Observe.
Observe that moment you crave.
Observe that moment your mind gets offended by a loved one, how it seeks to inflict the same offence, how it stops the possibility of accepting a reality other than yours and the sameness of both.
....
In that observing, you create space in your mind. In that observing you realize there is another voice, life or sense in you that is not involved in this moment. This is the way desires can flow and this is the way desires do not overflow you.

In Warrior I, we ground the feet and create a flow of energy from the ground up to the extended arms, those arms that seek and desire height. Bring the shoulder back into the socket and reach. The energy you generate between your palms, observe it, do not hold on to it and send it down to your feet to pass it back to the world. This way desire can flow and not overflow.
