Shake yourself out of your complacency, and contract your anus

If you have the opportunity to put “anus” in your headline, you have to, right?

That chance comes from this week’s Tim Miller blog post, which is all about Uranus and a bit about your anus:

25 or so years ago in Mysore, my old friend David Life swears that he heard Guruji screaming at him one day, “Contact Uranus! Contact Uranus!” This was a very difficult instruction for David to follow because he had no idea how to contact this distant planet. Finally, he realized that what Guruji was really saying was, “Contract your anus! Contract your anus!”–in other words, Mula Bandha! Over the next couple of days we will have an opportunity to “Contact Uranus” by virtue of two interesting planetary transits.

To find out what that opportunity might reveal, and why you might be inclined to ignore it, click the link. I’m hoping it means Bobbie and I will have an opportunity to get down to the Ashtanga Yoga Center and practice with Timji. It’s been too long, but the stars, so to speak, just haven’t aligned.
