Dealing with Change
As I approach my 33rd birthday I ponder at this life, all the surprises it brings, all the ups and downs and wonder what makes some of us not only survive but enjoy life more than others.
Anthropologists say that not the strongest humans survived but rather the most adaptable. When we look at adaptability it carries with it the attitude of allowing, resilliance, not minding, open mindedness and problem solving.
This "not minding" attitude is what the Yoga practice is all about, being able to let go of our very narrow minded preference and being open to the possibilites that change, no matter how painful it may seem, brings.
This "not minding" carries within it the strength, internal power and trust to know deep down that everything in the end, works out.
I heard Kirshna Das recall the teachings of his Master saying that God had taken care of it all for us, all we have to take care of is the mind. More often than not, when we let go, allow, surrender, drop our desires we find that it all falls in perfect place in Divine time.
