Though negative turbulence seems to create imbalance, strongly positive situations can also many a times make us feel imbalanced. Have you noticed how winning an award or praise can make you re-live that in your memory and then ‘puff you up” with pride. And while you are feeling prideful, your attention gets diverted and instead of focusing on the task that brought you recognition in the first place, you tend to overlook some crucial aspect and then fall from grace!
Center yourself and live your life from this center. The word meditation comes from ‘medi’ which means center. When we live life from our center, we are constantly in meditation- even while being fully active and conducting various tasks.
This is what Yoga is all about. It is not just simply twisting and turning your body into impossible shapes but to center yourself in such a way that you can be doing the most mundane or profound thing in your life, but you feel centered and while you are conducting your day as a “living meditation”, you feel truly alive and connected not just with your surrounding but with all of nature and all of life itself.
Then you experience Yoga. Yoga is not about doing something, it is about a way of being- being in union. Unison with all and everything.
