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 274 - Balance Selfish and Selfless

I returned back to the Yoga Shala for some more Mysore Ashtanga Yoga.

I have to admit that I have lived a lot of my life in a Co-dependant way.  I have dropped my own happiness in order to fulfill the happiness of others.  This has caused me to start to seclude myself from others in order to build up an internal happiness and not rely on the happiness found in the outside world.

The funny thing is when I started to build my internal happiness and when I felt more and more comfortable with myself I started to develop more people that want to take this comfort away.  I have started to pick up on these people.

The lessons that have been moving through my life is to find compassion inside others while keeping compassion inside of myself.  The balance between being selfish and selfless.

This subject seems to be coming up more and more as I write this blog.  It is because it is what is moving through me at the moment.  More to come.  Tonight I am going to be a bit selfish and cut this blog of early.  Good night.

  1. If we are fully selfless there will be 0 introspection...

    I believe moderation is key if we seek a balanced life.
