What about the times when we are afraid to be who we really are (authentic)?
This is a question we can hear about and struggle with constantly. First, my heart goes out to you in your deepest moment of need, and I’m beside you, if not literally, figuratively. Even if ultimately the choice made is something different than what you would have wanted going in…you, my dear yogi, were able to make a choice that felt right in your mind, heart and being for the moment; authentic to you. We are all human beings, joined together in our perfect imperfections and each one of us makes a difference in someone else’s life. It could be as simple as being that one extra stop on a mailman’s route; or as complex as when the nighttime story is read, one more time, to a little one before trucking them in for the night. In this moment, I would like to honor the authentic you, to reward you, to cherish you for the brave-ness you exhibit in your choices at every moment of your life. Right or wrong, left or right, up or down;…you take the road you freely chose to and you move forward albeit, maybe on the Road Less Traveled.
The choices we make aren’t perfect. I know sometimes we will disappoint others based on our decisions as autonomous human- wonderful-beings and our choices are made, for the most part, with an authentic belief that it is the right one!
I encourage you to continue to move forward with your choices – be authentic, and cherish them. When we move closer toward acting in accordance with our internal truths, we will find peace of mind and step even closer to samadhi.
Whatever your choices, big and small, and especially surrounding your daily practice of living yoga – Believe me; The best is always yet to come in yoga… and; that makes all the difference!
