Say ‘YES!’ to Life!
Our mind is a very powerful instrument and usually it makes us dance to its tune. However, once we make up our mind that we can do something, we will definitely accomplish it. Giving a very apt example, Gurumaa said that if a handicapped person decides that he can climb a mountain, he will successfully climb it. Another example Gurumaa gave was that if She told us right now to come up on the stage and sing, would we do so? No, we would have several excuses not to! If we think we can, then we definitely can. Nothing is impossible.
We need to face everything which life brings us. Every problem has a solution. If our mind is calm, we can resolve any problem, but if our mind is distracted and scattered, we remain confused and indecisive.
Pranayama and asanas help us achieve this clarity hence it is important to practice them daily every morning. It is this which along with the Guru’s teachings gives us a strong foundation through regular practice, else in times of crises we will falter. Even if we do get carried away by strong emotions or negative behavior, our inner alarm starts ringing immediately and we rectify the situation by altering our thinking to empower us. If we still make mistakes, we do not blame anyone and remain victims of circumstance but boldly face the situation. Remember, it is up to us to live life powerfully and happily.
