Over the years of practice, I’ve watched my thinking shift. This last year has felt like one of incredible alignment, but is it the external circumstances that have shifted, or the internal ones? Our thought patterns are what will frame our experience. The Yoga Sutras teach us that the meaning isn’t inherent in the situation, but instead the meaning is something the mind applies to the situation. This is why two people don’t find identical meaning in a situation, or person for that matter.
So... what if you assumed it was the right medicine for the right time, that it was the teaching you were meant to encounter, that it was the place you were meant to find yourself now? What if you assumed it was a blessing?
