Removing the Obstacles that Get in Our Way
Mental distractions such as stress, despair, depression, anxiety and fear are obstacles that get in our way as we strive for balance and peace. That is why we need to take care of our day to day activities, associations and lifestyle. Diet, exercise, rest and of course yoga are all things we can do to bring balance to our body-mind. We cannot find balance and quietude by meditation alone and that is why we need to take care of our daily lives. If we hope to find a sense of nirvana here on earth we need to pay close attention to how we live our lives. Every day focus on the most value gift of life and that is your health; body, mind and soul.
Let’s begin with the practice of yoga.
“When health is absent, wisdom cannot revel itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot be exerted, wealth is useless and reason is powerless.” Herophiles, 300 B.C.
