Staying sensitive in the middle of all this life is a challenge. It’s also an answer, to pretty much everything there is.
When people enter a rigid and rules-driven environment – whether that’s in a yoga studio, at work, or wherever – the usual response isn’t to get sensitive. It’s to turn off feeling – because this doesn’t feel good. Then we enter follow-the-leader mode, because that’s what we think we’re supposed to do.
Except that it doesn’t work. Sensitivity works. Following how you feel works. It’s good for everyone to find and follow what actually works for them.
I think people tolerate all these rigid rules – in yoga and in life – because we don’t believe that something will actually work for us. Or we don’t believe we can actually find it for ourselves.
Belief is important here. Even in Western medicine. You think belief doesn’t matter, and it’s just pills and procedures? Not true. Belief – and expectation – impact all our health outcomes. They impact all our life outcomes, too.
You have to believe you can find it. You have to believe you can do it.
