One of the best things that Yoga is teaching me is the ability to meditate. I’m not saying that it’s easy, or that I can do it for any length of time; however if I manage it for a few minutes the returns on those minutes are wonderful. I’ve been feeling a peace within myself lately that I haven’t felt in years. Usually I am an anxious person who worries about anything and everything. But, I actually find myself much less anxious lately.
I haven’t “found” enlightenment, and probably never will. And that’s not a problem. I truly don’t feel the need to make other people do things in exactly the way I would do them. I think I’ve been a lot less anal about life. There is a peace I really never thought that I would possess. I almost feel like the self I was as a child. That’s why I practice Yoga every day now. I don’t want to lose this feeling again.
