This amazing Yogi has left a beautiful footprint on my heart. I invite you to take in his words from his book, Happy Yoga, 7 Reasons Why There is Nothing to Worry About. "I can't explain how I ended up where I am now other than to say it's pure grace. It seems like whatever life puts in from of you is imbued with choices. You make your choices, and it feels like you're controlling your life to a certain extent-choosing your destiny. But sometimes it doesn't matter which choices you make: Life will keep reminding you of who you really are and what you're here to do. The truth is that I can't imagine a way of life for me other than the yogi way. And wether I chose my destiny or my destiny chose me, I'm grateful beyond measure for the gift that this life is."
One of my favorite sharing was from a Yin class yesterday. As we finished a super yummy 2 hour class, Steve began to lead us through a chakra meditation. In his very concise explanation of the chakra system, he expressed that one didn't need to believe anything in particular to experience the benefits of brining awareness to the subtle energetic systems of the body.
He likened this lack of belief to 'not having to believe in gravity for it to be true.' As he sat in the front of the class he began to share that our belief does not necessarily make something true. As he circled back to his example of gravity, he said that we didn't have to believe in it, but it he were to take someone up on a roof and push them off wether gravity was real or not was not dependent on a person's belief.
As I take this analogy back into my everyday life, I find myself excited at the prospect of the 'magic' of life surrounding me. Life has chosen to express itself through me, and through you. All of the energetic forces at play in our lives helps us to create, manifest, love, dream, and most of all live. On those days where perhaps you aren't full of belief, know that there are energetic forces working on your behalf.
My friends, may you be encouraged to truly dive into your lives. Feel the grace of this moment and know that it is specifically for you! Be willing to dive off of the walls of your heart!
