“Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people.”
Obviously, yoga is a huge part of my life. It began as a way to relieve stress, re-shape my body, rewire my mind... but the more I practiced, the more I knew I needed yoga in my life.
When I finally made the decision to participate in teacher training, I did not expect yoga to become what I did for a career. My yoga teacher training was awakening, life altering and transformative. It put many things in perspective and it helped me to realize what was no longer in alignment with how I wanted to live my life.
When I made the choice to leave my job as an Occupational Therapist and pursue teaching yoga full-time, I knew it was the right decision. I knew then, that my Dharma, my path, was to teach yoga, translate the teachings as they aligned with my experiences and be a guide, a voice and an aspiring model of the doctrines.
As time goes on, I see how my path becomes even more clear. I didn't decide to teach yoga to become a yoga celebrity, to become rich, or popular. I did it to serve; to help people heal themselves as I had found the path to be a healthy one for me.
I know that not everyone will like me or how I teach. And I'm okay with that because that means I am being authentic. I always say, I don't want to be everyone's favorite jam for their toast. If everyone likes me, that means I am doing something wrong and not being true to myself, which wouldn't be practicing Satya (truth). Teaching is something that comes natural to me because I love to share my knowledge.
When we surrender we place our faith and trust in the Divine. We aren't trying to control or manipulate outcomes, we just go with the flow and we live our lives in the moment. How freeing, right? Now, this doesn't mean we don't take personal responsibility for our actions, it just means we aren't attached to any particular outcome, and we trust there is a Divine plan.
We don't know what the future holds or how the rest of our lives will unfold.
Ishvarapranidhana (creative surrender) is placing trust and faith in something greater than ourselves and knowing it will all work out to benefit all. At least, that's what I'm hoping for. Again, I don't have all the answers. I know I can't control outcomes or people; all I can control is myself and my response to life. And I choose to let go and live free, with no attachments to cause my own suffering. Again, that's what I'm working towards and constantly practicing. Find your purpose and be of service to the world. And then let go of the results. Trust that the Universe has your back, just like you have mine and I have yours.
