“Some are not to put their head down, some are not meant to follow the rules. That doesn’t make them wrong. They are just self-assured. We need to learn to be around them.“
Accepting Others and Finding Inner Peace
As practitioners of yoga, we are taught to listen to our inner selves and follow our own path. This is a fundamental aspect of yoga philosophy, as it allows us to connect with our true selves and find a sense of peace and balance within ourselves. But what about those who seem to be at odds with society’s norms and expectations? What about those who seem to be self-assured and unapologetically themselves, even if it goes against the grain?
In today’s society, it’s not uncommon to come across individuals who don’t fit into the mold. They may be the ones who never seem to put their heads down, who don’t follow the rules, and who stand out as unique and self-assured. However, these individuals are often seen as wrong or out of step with society. But what if we took a step back and looked at things from a different perspective?
From a yoga perspective, we can understand that everyone has their own unique journey and path. Each of us is on a quest to find our own inner truth and connection to the universe. When we come across someone who is self-assured and unapologetically themselves, we should see that as a sign of their inner strength and understanding of who they are.
It’s important to recognize that we all have different strengths and weaknesses, and that’s what makes us unique. Just because someone doesn’t follow the rules or put their head down, doesn’t mean they are wrong. They are simply living their life in a way that feels true to them. It’s up to us to learn to be around them and accept them for who they are.
Incorporating traditional yoga philosophy into our daily lives can help us understand and accept our differences. By connecting with our own inner selves and understanding our own journey, we can learn to be more accepting and understanding of others. So, instead of wrestling with our head and heart, let’s listen to them and see if they have a genuine demand. And let’s take a step back and recognize that self-assured individuals are simply on their own unique path, just like each of us.
In conclusion, yoga teaches us to embrace our differences and understand that everyone is on their own unique journey. By incorporating these teachings into our daily lives, we can learn to be more accepting and understanding of others, and find peace and balance in our relationships.
