“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.”
Beyond chasing asanas and the joys of achieving them, I’m realising that yoga is about much more than that. It is about taming and training the mind as much as it is does the body; about focus and detachment, balance, and about simply being present through the process – all its little struggles, celebrations and epiphanies. It is almost an attitude, a way of life, and I’m realising through this YTT that there’s a lot I need to learn.
Yoga is a personal journey, as is life – ever a process and ever in progress, and living in a hectic city i feel sometimes we all need to take a step back and internalise that that is ok.
It is no competition, no rush to get anywhere. Don’t lose yourself in the pursuit of an end, but find yourself within your pursuit of progress. Live in the present for what it’s worth and carry hope for tomorrow.
