Yoga is not a destination, but a journey.
My friend said: "If you want to be a runner, you must run; if you want to be a weightlifter, you must lift weights." As a runner, she knows that the only way to extend the time of the race is to run. Her love of running reminded me of the spirit of yoga.
Many yoga beginners are like this. They enthusiastically signed up for the class, then bought yoga mats and beautiful yoga clothes, and announced that they would now "practice yoga." When they are immersed in their own practice, they will encounter various difficult movements, so they will feel fear and frustration. Then many people stopped practicing and eventually ended in failure. However, it is at this moment that the obstacles we encounter are the real challenges of our practice.
In fact, the reason for this phenomenon is that we do not consistently practice and sincerely accept the spiritual world of yoga. As a result, we will not change our practices or lives.
Yoga is not a destination, but a journey. From the beginning, I faced the fear and frustration brought by yoga, and finally accepted and fell in love with yoga. From beginning to end, yoga is a process of seeking inward. This inward seeking is not to escape external pressure or difficulties, but to seek deeper and stronger motivation to face the outside and the outside world. When the inner self really begins to appear, you will find that the so-called stress, difficulties and all the so-called irritability are no longer important, because the inner is constant, whether it brings you happiness depends on whether you are ready to satisfy it.
For yoga practice, as long as we persist in practicing every day and treat it with a good attitude, we will discover our potential and our true self. It develops in asanas and breaks through mental, physical and emotional barriers, thereby gaining spiritual confidence.
