How to embrace change

When we say change is โ€œgoodโ€, we are usually trying to reassure ourselves. Instinctively we view change as uncomfortable, and we resist it.

We should know the feeling of insecurity in the face of change is natural. โ˜บ๏ธ

When we understand this we will stop listening to our inner narrative of fear or feeling incapable which limited our capacity to respond with courage. ๐Ÿ™Œ

While yoga contains many different practices, one of the main teachings in yoga philosophy is Abhyasa (effort) and Variagya (non-attachment ).

And the message is that we, as yoga practitioners, should practice yoga (and life) giving our full effort but at the same time letting go of results or outcomes.

Events are objective. Itโ€™s only our opinions that something is good or bad.

So itโ€™s not worth it to even think about whether change is โ€œgoodโ€ or โ€œbadโ€.

And therefore itโ€™s not worth fighting for change or fighting against it.

Change is not good, or bad. They just are.

Impermanence is a natural part of life.

How to embrace change?

๐Ÿ‘‰ Focus on the practice of making the most of everything (Abhyasa). And cease fighting (Varaiyga).

๐Ÿ‘‰ See change as an opportunity to grow and find new ways to adapt change with an open mind.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Let go of the control and enjoy the process and welcome the unknown and see it as an adventure.

I am excited about these changes, and I look forward to sharing more with you.ย โ˜บ๏ธ
