Life is the ultimate teacher, and we're going through what we're going through, well...because...we're ready for it.
You remember the old saying, right?
Look, it can be emotionally challenging to keep a positive attitude and faith in the middle of a life storm...after all, if God really loves us then why are so many suffering unnecessarily? I guess we'll leave that question to the philosophers...
I'm not going to pretend that I have the answers but I do believe that we're all children of the Universe and just like young children who will not benefit by getting everything they want, when they want, how they want, we also benefit when life makes us learn and grow from situations.
Whatever you're going through, you can handle it! Remember, nothing is here to stay, it's here to pass!
Here's what's working for me and a lot of our clients:
Life may be teaching us that now more than ever and especially during this time of uncertain changes, it's a really good idea to take some self-inventory and consider some physical, mental, and or environmental changes.
Some lessons may emerge from evaluating your dwellings. Others are discovering life lessons by sitting quietly or walking without any music or chatter.
By opening ourselves up to the lessons presented by life, many are discovering that there are unprocessed emotions, open-ended transactions, negative self-talk, or negative perspectives that need some revamping and are taking steps toward positive change...essentially, learning from life.
If we're able to remain in faith, peace, and equanimity, we're able to learn and grow from the teachers we call life situations.
Yoga helps more than you can imagine ;-) Here is the yoga class schedule for both of Gratitude's locations.
