“Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away”
Henry D. Thoreau
Greetings dearest yoga students,
How often do we try to keep pace with our companions? Pushing forward towards an ideal when we’re not even sure we connect to its truth. Our society, families, friends all have ideas of how we should live our life. It is time now to find your own truth. Listen closely to your heart as you approach a decision. What truly resonates for you may be quite different from those around you. Do something because you understand why you are doing it deep down in your core and it makes sense for you and those around you. Give yourself space to feel into the question, check in with your physical, mental and emotional energies, they are the guides to your intuitive nature which always knows what is right. Take a breath, get yourself in a calm state and have the patience and faith to listen to what your higher self is telling you. Trust yourself enough to be guided from within, not because you feel you need to adhere to some arbitrary code that others have laid out for you. We live and let live which means we also honor that others have their own path, we niether judge or retaliate; we honor their decision and go our own way to decide for ourselves.
“You cannot discover new oceans until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore”
Most importantly, don’t be afraid to fail. It is in taking risks, trying out new ways of being, that we find ourselves and create the life we were meant to live. Nothing would get done if we all waited until we did it perfectly. Encourage yourself with compassion, focus, vision and a little light hearted humor. It is in the falls we take that we learn how to endure, create and make this world a better place for ourselves and others.
