Reflecting on my previous thoughts on what is yoga and why I have embraced yoga as a part of my life, I can’t help but think yoga has become everything for me lately. It has filled my days with passion and gratitude and excitement and humbleness, it has led me on a path I did not expect to endeavor. It has led me to my deeper Self and has taught me to appreciate the present moment, it has taught me to appreciate the true warriors in my life, be it the mother with breast cancer, the child with early signs of depression and anxiety, the mother ridiculing herself for not working hard enough or not being able to meet all the expectations, the spoiled socialite with no obligations except to oneself… And I have learned to accept and embrace all that. Why?
Because we are all humans and we crave acceptance and forgiveness. We need to forgive ourselves and embrace ourselves, for we are enough, and we do enough. We are what truly matters. We are what we have been looking for. For the spirit is within us. We are the Universe and the Universe is us. We are one.
I bow to you!
