I'm nervous. I feel like I did in university the night before a big exam. I am the type of student who studies right from the beginning. I don't cram. I can't. My brain will not process information that way and I get way too stressed out to retain any information. Tomorrow I lead my first class. I've been trying to study the asanas but I can't. I am full to the brim with information and right now anything that I read will not stay in. So I'm trying to chill out. Relax. I picked up my copy of Yoga Sutras and randomly opened it to Yoga Sutra 2:33.
Vitarka Baadhane Pratipaksha Bhavanam
When disturbed by negative thoughts, opposite (positive) ones should be though of. This is pratipaksha bhavana.
