Yoga is not meant for you!!
There are two kinds of people in this world. One who fight for themselves and take charge of their life and the ones who just survive. The people in first category do not fear hard work and realize that nothing worth having comes easy. However, the second category people run away from hard work, succumb to the worldly temptations and blame everyone else for whatever they face in life. So if you are reading this and realize that you belong to the second category then YOGA IS NOT MEANT FOR YOU.
YOGA requires eligibility to be practiced. It is not everybody’s cup of tea! If you want to be eligible for YOGA, the very first thing you should consider is SELF-ANALYSIS. Half of the people who would belong to the second category as mentioned above would not have the heart to accept it. You need to have the courage to accept what is yours. You know yourself the best. If you constantly lie to yourself and fail to admit it then you are not fit for yoga.
Yoga is the union of body and mind. It is the key to connect you from within and has the potential to awaken your consciousness. The people who constantly crib about being sad or how their life is the most miserable while always blaming others for their sad state of mind are very immature and certainly are not fit to practice yoga. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar once said “Yoga is not just doing some exercise, it is much more. It is to expand your awareness, sharpen your intellect and enhance your intuitive ability”.As simple it may sound, in reality expanding awareness, sharpening intellect, and enhancing your intuitive ability requires a focused and undisturbed mind. We as human beings indeed get over-whelmed by the tough situations in life but our job is not to quit! Our duty is to overcome those obstacles by self-analyzing, improving, and pushing ourselves to bring out the best in us. The truth is it requires a lot of sacrifice and self-determination, the two qualities that make you “YOGI”. However, if you choose to be quitters then YOGA IS NOT MEANT FOR YOU!
It is very easy to fall for the temptations in our mind which make us treat our bodies like trash-bin whereas our bodies are our temple. We are human beings-“the social animals” who are blessed with a very powerful thing which makes us distinct from all the animals on this planet and that is MIND. Our minds make us who we are today. It gives us the ability to think and to decide what’s wrong or right. In one way it is the only asset that has gotten us this far out in the world. On the contrary, it is this mind that controls us and stops us from exploring our full potential. Yes, that’s true! And it is only because we let it control us. YOGA teaches us how to control our minds and unleash its power to achieve the unattainable. You are the master of your mind and its needs to follow your orders and yoga can make it happen.On the other hand if you choose to be one such person who lets the mind control you rather you tame it to explore its full potential then YOGA IS NOT MEANT FOR YOU!!
