Do you feel as though there is something missing from your life?
How about the nagging feeling that you have been just floating through life so far, yet to make the sort of difference you envisioned as a child?
It’s common to have the “gut” feeling that we are capable of much greater things in our lives, but to lack clarity on how we can realize such accomplishments.
Now is the time to change all of that by using yoga and meditation to become directed by inner strength and passion rather that external influences.
Face it, the vast majority of decisions in our lives are directed by others. You would be correct in arguing that we don’t have someone else telling us what to do every single hour of each and every day, but through leaving our lives to chance and by following a short-term, tactically driven lifestyle, we really control very little about the direction of our life.
No wonder that as each year passes we seem to drift further and further away from the key characteristics of someone in control of their life: happiness, health, meaningful relationships and a fulfillment that can only be achieved through alignment with your inner passions.
LOOKING WITHIN TO FIND OUR GREATNESS
As we move through life we become better and better at “tactical living”. We get better at making short-term decisions related to short-term goals, fooling ourselves into thinking we are making giant leaps of progress when in fact, we are moving further away from inner-directed greatness.
We chase job after job, business after business with the hope of gaining more money – but for what?
We deal with health problems with an ever-growing list of substances from alcohol and drugs to painkillers and sleeping pills, yet we fail to recognize the underlying cause of such ailments.
Relationship seeking becomes an essential part of our life, each subsequent relationship is designed to overcome the limitations of the first and satisfy our ego giving us that short-term fix that eventually leads to the very thing we hope to prevent – loneliness, unhappiness and unfulfilling relationships.
Through all of this “tactical living”, we become lost, adopting outward beliefs, impressions and values to help make the many decisions we must make each day.
What if we could harness the power of strength, passion and inner spirit that exists today, deep inside of us?
With yoga and meditation you can open up your inner resources to work in your favor, overcome the conflict that often exists between your decisions and your inner values.
I first started yoga and meditation to relax, to simply re-capture a portion of the day for myself and I have to admit, the insight gained into my own strengths and passions is a powerful effect I had not earlier planned.
After just a few months of practicing yoga and meditation, two important things happened:
1. It became easier to relax and let my sub-conscious thoughts make their way to the surface. We all have a powerful sub-conscious that is capable of directing your life, the key is to understand what the messages are.
2. Through the process, many people soon begin to experience new feelings of self-respect, a like for themselves achieved through greater understanding and self-awareness. Quite simply, you can’t like someone you don’t know, and most of us go through life not really knowing who we really are. In fact, this lack of knowing what is deep inside us scares us enough to cover it up entirely.
Success in relationships, health, social situations, career, finances are all embedded within us, by choosing to understand and leverage our internal strengths and talents, we can live the lives and impact society as we secretly know is possible.
Adopting just 15-20-minutes of yoga and meditation each day will open your conscious mind to your sub-conscious strengths and talents making you virtually unstoppable.
