Have you noticed these moments that allow you to savor life and nature in awe to its fullest beauty and you even say to yourself ‘I will think back to this very moment, I will remember?
Blue sky, soft puffy clouds, a beautiful lush green as the signature of Spring time… travelling to different place and seeing experiencing people, nature and cultures. This is for me the lesson of life. The sweetness to savor each moment and even the bitterness, the excitement of being challenged and being outside our comfort zone that makes us feel alive. Every day is different the rituals we have being at home and grounded will vary when we are out of our comfort zone. Yet again creating small rituals each day to take time for yourself and breath… feel…breath….observe…breath…reflect…breath…move consciously…..breath…. contemplate… breath….and just be! Savor this moment. Understanding there is a rhythm to life, a flow and if we are aware of it, listen to it, things always will unfold as they have to.. Letting go of control, wanting, craving and just trust life. Have you noticed these moments when suddenly ‘out of coincidence’ things happen, people cross our path and you think to yourself: What just happened there? Or when you really want something so bad and to your disappointment it didn’t happen; however, other things unfold that you actually needed more to develop and grow more as a human being and you only realise later that it had to happen what happen for you to be where you are now, no matter how painful it was. We are so obsessed in controlling outcomes and results and to achieve without just doing our best and see what happens. Our society gives us the idea that ‘we are not good enough’ if we don’t succeed. How come? Each of us has their own journey and if we can honor it and be courageous enough to do our best no matter what and trust in the process of our journey, great things can unfold.
The thinking process, philosophy of yoga allows us to use tools that help us to become aware and conscious. Your breath (pranayama), focus (dharana), movement (asana), life principles with integrity (yamas & niyamas), contemplation (dhyana), repurposing our senses (prathyahara), allows us to find peace and center to this space of calmness.
Allow yourself to step back and create time and space to explore these tools and take care of yourself. If you won’t, who will? Taking responsibility of our life and accepting what life throws at us with grace and effortlessly. It is challenging not to victimize ourselves and not become upset. If this does happen ask yourself why these feelings come up, unravelling all these layers of our belief systems and conditioning we have been carrying throughout our life. And yes, we feel shaken up and uncomfortable, again taken out of our comfort zone. Accepting and letting go of what we cannot control. There is a reason why it is happening, and can we be patient and observe, do our best gracefully and effortlessly?
