In order to enter a state of grace, or even visit it for a moment, we must begin to pay attention to what is—to connect. Whether the present moment is as we (or others) think it “should” be is not a concern in yoga. Yoga relieves us from that judgement. It requires us to express from a clearer version of ourselves; to gain perspective. Do not underestimate the power of this clarity; to promote and attract compassion, joy, strength, and a reflective intelligence.
Sometimes it is a traumatic life event, a physical injury, or stress that brings us to seeking balance. To find our way through, we can practice Ashtanga yoga, the eight-limb path, with enthusiasm and patience. Good guidance and a community can help us do this. Peace within is the realization that we are not separate, and what comes from this realization is a state that has the potential to change our bodies, our minds, our relationships, and our world.
It is all a daily practice.
