I find that balance is what the world lacks so much of. Balance with work, with social life, with love, with nature, with society… the pressures to earn more, do more, achieve more, explore more, buy more, have more…sometimes it can feel that the world is so concerned of what else we need to be “happy” that we find it impossible to just be. Be in the moment, taking pleasure in what is rather that what should be.
The further we seem to push and strive for more, the further we move away from what really matters and we lose complete balance with ourselves and the environment around us. Is it really the amount of likes on Facebook or Instagram that make us happy? Or the new shoes and make up that keep us sane? Or is it the bigger paychecks that seem to dictate our worth? Or, is it simply just finding balance – finding peace in our mind, our heart and our soul.
Figuring out what truly makes us happy without listening to the constant noise that surrounds us, pressuring us to do what we think we should rather than what truly desire.
In my opinion, we need more balance!
In yoga, these balance postures provide us with space to be free. To just to be in balance, even if just only for a few seconds – to help you tune in to what is really important and what it is like to just be….
Take time during the month of July to re find your balance in life. Play with this pose, don’t get fixed on the end results just enjoy the exploration and liberation of the mind!! Breathe, wobble, smile, stumble, try again and just be. Here and now…
May the universe be at peace and may we all find a little more balance in the world
