100 Words: The Opposite of Good

opposite of good cat yogaThe opposite of good isn’t bad.  It’s real.  (Thanks to Claire Dederer’s, Poser: My Life in 26 Yoga Poses for this earthshattering notion.)

Good follows directions, lives up to expectations, and does it right. Good is tight and breathes shallowly.

Real takes courage.  Real is you.  Real doesn’t happen by accident. Real happens when we pay attention to sensation. From there we can make real decisions, ask real questions, take real stands.  Give real love.

Your real is unique.  Nobody else can do it.  So experiment with letting go of doing it right.  Instead do it real. Real’s where it’s at.
