I don’t know about you but personal comparison is exhausting. We already feel like we are half doing everything. We finally get the balance right and have a moment of joy and bliss but we need to stop, grab our phone and snap a pic to savour the image and share.
And just like that the moment is over and we are right back where we began again. This need to portray a side of ourselves that is perfect and balanced can wear thin pretty quick. What tough tower to climb, day in day out.
So here’s a thought. Instead of tending to the image that you want to portray on the outside, how about working on the fundamentals. Now stop for a moment and think of your body and mind like a garden. They are vehicles for us to fully experience life. They require attention and nurturing. The moment we stop tending to them or take them for granted, they begin to wither. The decline happens slowly at first and often goes unnoticed in the early stages. The monkey mind, the stress, the unhealthy habits, the pain starts to creep in. Niggles and injury set in and we start to believe this new reality of our uncomfortable body.
Now image that you make the decision to start tending to your garden. The garden of your body and mind. You focus on building the you that you want to be. To live in equanimity and balance. To feel strong and subtle. To move gracefully, to have clear thoughts and a ton of energy throughout your day. To choose relationships that support you to become a better you, rather than hold you back. You begin to move with the flow of life and not against it. This is the true power of yoga. So yes. The Grass Is Always Greener… But only Where You Water It.
