We get so upset when we hear something bad said about us. Have we asked ourselves why? We often wish to be loved by everybody. Does it happen in real life? Is it a realistic goal?
Might we enjoy the spaciousness and lightness that we experience once we shed these expectations and assessments about ourselves. It’s quite liberating! Don’t you think so?
The challenges that we face in our life journey can severe us and make us bitter. And we plod through life feeling let down. But just like yoga teaches us, pulling up whilst grounding down to the earth.
How could we translate this? The hardships that we face, difficult decisions that we make as a result gives us the strength and courage. At the same time, let us ground ourselves, connect to our Center and bring out the kindness that is our innate nature.
Living our busy challenging lives, let us stay focused on our tasks, making tough decisions on a daily basis yet tapping into a kindness within each one of us that is our true nature.
