a brief musing by Mike Nixon
That’s right, its not going to make you famous, rich or help find the perfect partner of your dreams.
You might even find the opposite for a while… if you really connect with your talents, life’s work and destiny, and take up the challenge. You might be a nobody, poor and without a partner!
However, you will find a richness, a fullness, and good people in your life that are far more valuable and sustaining long-term than all the money and fame in the world.
Whatever else has happened, good or bad, yoga practice has been the cornerstone and the reference point, ever since I took it up almost 30 years ago – thanks to Pam Crisp in Wellington for that gift.
I’d like to finish with a famous quote from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.
Do the practice and all is coming.
This is so true in my experience, even while I have been writing this!
My interpretation is to do your yoga practice whatever form it is, regularly and with sincerity.
Be present, completely present, forget about the past, don’t worry about the future, just do your practice, no more , no less.
