Trust the process

Trust the process

You hear people say, โ€œ๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜จ๐˜ข ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ข ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด.โ€ ๐Ÿค”

The Process is not necessarily a yoga philosophy. Itโ€™s applied in life as well.

So often we are goal driven. But goals are scary.

The process simply means we should focus on

1๏ธโƒฃ Doing the absolutely SMALLEST things well,

2๏ธโƒฃ taking one action at a time

3๏ธโƒฃ with full effort

I see this at most when students kick up to Handstand (including myself).

We place ourselves in front of the wall, measuring our hand distance, bringing one leg up, and then we froze.

We are there thinking, strategizing maybe there is fear. Maybe we are thinking of โ€œ๐˜ž๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ง ๐˜ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฌ ๐˜ถ๐˜ฑ?โ€ Then everyone is up and we are still stuck on the ground โ€œpreparingโ€.

There was one time my teacher yelled out, โ€œ๐——๐—ผ๐—ปโ€™๐˜ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ถ๐˜‡๐—ฒ. ๐—ฆ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฝ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด. ๐—๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐˜‚๐—ฝ!โ€.

I am not saying we should just ruthlessly do things. We do need some knowledge and skills. But ultimately we have to do it by taking action.

The process is about assuming the right action in the order, one after other โ€“ and trying out best to each action the best we can.

When we are busy putting one foot in front of the next, we stop overanalyzing the obstacles, or we donโ€™t even notice the obstacles were there.

The same thing applies in life. Build your life action by action. ๐Ÿ™‚

Acknowledge there will be obstacles. But shift our attention to taking action, one step at a time, and just see what happens, and be content with whatever that is.

Sounds clichรฉ. But well, still works. ๐Ÿ™Œ
