Welcome to my ‘My Yoga Space’ blog. Yoga is my passion and also a lifestyle for me. I have been a student of yoga for the last 30 years and a teacher for the last 20 years.
Here I would like to share with you some wisdom from the yoga scriptures that have influenced and fascinated me. And, I will share answers to some of the yoga and health related questions that I receive.
To begin with, I wish you a very Happy New Year. May the New Year bring you good things in life including better Health, Happiness, and Spiritual upliftment.
The New Year can be a happier year only if we let go of the past. If we carry our anger and regrets from the past with us, the New Year will soon start to feel like the same old last year.
There is nothing we can do about what happened in the past, whether it was something we did or someone else did. We learn from the past, we can make effort to mend it but this effort can be anger- and regret-free.
Letting go of the past doesn’t mean forgetting the past. It is letting go of the questioning and blaming which gives rise to the emotions of anger and regret in us. It is not the memory of the past that troubles us, but the emotions and feelings associated with the past that hurt us. Dropping the questioning and blaming drops the hurtful emotions. The skill lies in becoming aware of the questions and emotions arising in us but not giving much importance to them. We do this for our own sake, for our own well being. The anger and regrets in us are detrimental to the well being of our own bodies and mind.
Let our resolutions for the New Year be somewhat different from the resolutions we have made in the past. Let it be of moving forward. Life itself is moving forward. When we move forward with life, it carries us. Then we are swimming with the tide. It becomes joyful. When we move against the flow of life, it becomes a struggle. The choice is ours.
Let’s move forward together.
