It’s easy to believe that if you are going through a difficult situation that it’s an excuse for you to put your legs up, watch Netflix for days on end, and not do anything productive at all. Pandemic 2020 has shown us that.

A day or two of this is acceptable. Even a week. But I have noticed many of my friends behaving as if the end of the world is here, and they have battened down the hatches to get ready to die.

They are passing their time as if it’s only a matter of time before they are done for.

Is that the best approach to this spiritual test that we are undergoing right now? I have an opinion on this that I will share below. Read on to see what it is.

Why Do I Think I Will Change If I Don’t Work At It?

Is change without effort possible? Of course not, but then why do we believe that it is.

Recently, my goal has been to change the way I do my yoga practice in the morning. Normally, what I do is I do a half-assed job of practicing. I am standing there, in a yoga pose, in an asana, and completely not focused on what I am doing. My body is in the pose, in the asana, in the correct posture.

People always ask me the same question – what started me on this journey of spiritual awakening, and self-actualization? There are many answers to it, of course. I sometimes feel like I have been on this journey forever and ever, and it’s a never ending path that I will be on for a long time to come. Past lives and future lives all devoted to the same goal.

But, if I had to think about it with regards to this specific lifetime that I am in, at the moment, I would have to say it was when I seriously started doing yoga.

It is such a simple thing, isn’t it?? I mean, all you are doing is moving your body here and there, hither and thither, in a wide variety of asinine postures.

But, anyone who has done yoga, knows that it isn’t just about turning your body into an assortment of pretzel-like poses. It’s more than that, and that’s why I believe that yoga is the gateway tool to the spiritual enlightenment or awakening journey. It is the thing that gets hundreds and thousands of people onto the path and gets them interested in what is beyond the illusion of maya.
