Earlier today I was working out with a couple guys
in a gymnastics center. After doing a few sets of
Hindu Pushups, squats and bridging, I began to
work on my backbend.
This means falling into a back bridge from a standing
Now, most people would consider me as having a pretty
phenomenal bridge, especially considering my size. Yet,
I’m always looking to improve – so I pulled the school’s
coach to the side and said, ‘Got any more tips on what
I can do to make my bridge better?’
He walked into the other room with me. I demonstrated
what I was doing, then told him I felt stuck and wanted to
move to another level in this exercise.
Next thing you know, he has me doing a couple exercises
I’d never seen before. I got into position and executed them
as best I could. And I started feeling muscles I wasn’t hitting
When I came out of the bridge, I was feeling euphoric. Had
blood hitting the noggin at a faster rate of speed. My it felt
good. It’s the sort of feeling that comes with a breakthrough
in your life.
‘You realize you stretched a foot farther than before, don’t
you?’ said the coach.
‘A foot,’ I questioned. ‘Are you serious.’
‘Yes, you moved a foot further than before. The exercise I
gave you forced more weight forward. Amazing, huh.’
I set a time to work with him next week – not because I need
to, but because I want to. I want to get even more out of my
body – in part because I realize that the more I get from my
body, the more I get from my mind.
After a good workout, after a session in which I get my body
to open up at a deeper level – there is always a corresponding
opening in the mental and spiritual realm – if you look for it.
The reason this is so is simple: Your mind, body and soul are
interconnected to begin with. It’s just that we’ve been taught
to separate them so we can study them.
That’s fine – yet it has it’s limitations. Causes much confusion,
me thinks. You’ve got so-called intellectuals who think they’re
smart because they don’t exercise or play sports. They can
brag about their academic smarts all they want – but if they
have a hang-over gut, they’re missing something upstairs.
Want to be smart. Then train your body and get it to do
what you want it to. You’ll quickly find, the moment you
begin to exercise, that your mind, your intellect and your
imagination, are the keys that determine whether or not
you get fit – as well as HOW fit you get.
Not convinced. Fine, then go for a walk and pay attention
to your thoughts. Find out whose in charge of your body
as you listen to the internal babble going on. Find out whose
in charge as you see the images you paint in your imagination.
You’ll find the same stranger who will stretch your body and your
mind to a new dimension – if you’ll say the magic word … ‘yes.’
