We build a yoga pose from the ground up in the same way we build a house. First, we lay the foundation and then we construct the floors and walls and roof on top. Without a stable foundation, the structure will not be strong and enduring. Similarly, you need to construct anything in life in this manner, whether it is a friendship, new endeavor or creative project. When you begin anything new with a strong foundation or stability you create a solid base for your future. In feng shui, this represents the element of earth with its strong rectangular or square base that is impossible to tip over. The next time you embark on a new relationship, job or project, create a stable base from which to grow. Begin in stability!
