Most years I can reflect back and recant my experiences, both good and bad. Yoga, in its many forms, has helped me to gain a deeper understanding and more importantly, acceptance of life’s many shifts. No one seems to be exempt from experiencing both the beauty and the challenges of life.
The Yoga Sutras explains this so elegantly through the dance of the Gunas: the braiding of the integral flavors of life. We live in the continuous movement from light to dark and every shade in between -all adding to the richness of our experience here.
I have grown to see that nothing is wrong -or right for that matter, but ALL is inherent in the cycle of life, the challenging times become richer in their lessons and the gifts more precious in their beauty.
Knowing that the times of my life are as magical as the changing of day to night, or as intense as the turn of the seasons, offers me deep peace and awe in the knowledge that I am part of something much bigger than my particular life situation. We are both vast and minor in the lens of this world.
