How does Yoga give you peace of mind? Each day is a new opportunity for all of us. For those who seek inner peace, Yoga is much like a compass, which directs us toward fields of happiness and unlimited opportunities.
Unfortunately, many people only see what they do not have. When you ask people what bothers them most about their lives, many of them will point to a missed opportunity or something that is difficult to possess. Very few will realize the value of good friends, good health, common sense, and a loving family. When we evaluate our lives, it is best to look deep into the present moment. This is an honest look at oneself, without needless self-criticism.
Look at your accomplishments, your worthiness, and learn from the set -backs of the past. This is your “starting point” toward ridding your life of emotional clutter. Many people wait for things to change. They hope and wish, but most of the time nothing drastic changes.
If you wait for things to happen, they seldom do. It takes action to cause change. These principles are learned by observing the Law of Karma. Small changes add up over time – while circumstances, and people around you, react to your initial actions. If you pick your head up every day, and greet people with enthusiasm, their reaction to you will change.
Good luck is rarely an accident. No one notices the person who fades into the background. When you are knowledgeable about a subject, it is time to step forward and speak up. On the other hand, if you know nothing about a subject, this is a great time to listen and ask questions.
Yoga practice, and all of its aspects, has helped humankind to find the moderate path of inner balance. It is safe to realize that no one can be an expert in all of life’s matters. At the same time, each of us has important ideas to contribute. As each of us continues our life journey of practicing Yoga, it is important to find the emotional balance that lies within.
Putting the past behind us is a great start. If you made mistakes, you are not alone – all of us do. See the most important treasures you have in good friends, good health, common sense, and a loving family. At this point, there is no direction to go but forward. Shedding your emotional baggage will set you free to improve your life and the lives of those around you.
