What is Yoga 308

Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 237 - Follow your Code of Ethics

Today I went to Full Circle Yoga and took the Flow 1-2 class with Kristen Schneider.  I was really happy throughout the class.  Everything felt really good, I felt in the moment, and I was really content with my life and who I am.

I have come to accept a lot of things that are a part of me.  On top of that I am also accepting others for who they are.  I feel like my life has been very positive.  I have always looked for the positive aspects in other people.  I believed for a long time that people want peace, people want harmony, and people want to find love in their heart.  We live our life developing our own code of ethics.  Frustrations creep into our life when we feel like other people are not following our same codes.  I have gotten really frustrated in my life because I do not understand how some people's ethics can lead them towards what I assume is both our ideas of peace, harmony, and love.

Our world is filled with men and women who cheat, abuse others, steal, manipulate, and use others to get what they want.  My greatest fear in my life has been turning into this person.  This fear controlled my life.  I spent a lot of my time doing things to prove that I was not this type of person.  I was in relationships where my role was to prove to her that I was a good guy.  I was not accepting that I was a good person who actually believes in his code of ethics and follows them.  The other half was I was with someone that did not see these good qualities in me.  We all have our faults, but I will not become the man I fear because I am not that man.

My true frustrations with other people are tied to my fears of these people.  I would love for everyone to believe in my same code of ethics, but I have accepted that this is not everyone's path.  We all have different beliefs and ways to find our idea of peace, love, and harmony.  I have grown to accept that everyone is living their life the best they know how.  We are not better and we are not worst then each other.  We are all learning and changing with each other.  Our code of ethics change and we continue on down our path.  Our true beliefs stick with us.  We become the people we strive to become.

We all have the ability to become who we want to become.  How much time do you concentrate on living your code and how much time do you spend telling others how to live their life.  What are your code of ethics and are you following yours?  Let's all start there.  Leave a comment or send an email.
