Civilize the mind but make savage the body

Civilize the mind but make savage the body

The best things I ever did for myself were hands down starting to work out, train martial arts, and do yoga. This is my journey into that.

"Many people dedicate their lives to actualizing a concept of what they should be like, rather than actualizing themselves.
This difference between self-actualization and self-image actualization is very important. Most people live only for their image"

"The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent, but if we can come to terms with this indifference, then our existence as a species can have genuine meaning. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light."

I read an article the other day called “I don’t do yoga and it’s all because of you.” The article was directed towards the instagram yogis and yoginis and their “yoga selfies.” The author was very angry and bitter and was saying how all yoga selfies do are essentially say “I’m better than you” and are an excuse to do inappropriate poses while wearing tight and revealing clothing. She said that none of the yoga pictures represent real yoga and that if the person posting them thinks they are in any way inspiring, then we are kidding ourselves. I don’t agree. Any of you who have followed me for a long time, can see that I have progressed to where I am now—I was not always able to do inversions or splits or any advanced poses. I’ve come a looooong way. So I hope that none of you see my pictures and think “wow what a show off, I will never be able to do that and she is rubbing it in my face and I’m never going to do yoga now” because what I really want you to think is “if I practice long enough, anything is possible. I can do that with enough practice. If a regular person can do that after some dedication, then I definitely can.” I am not here to make you feel inferior, but to let you know that you can do anything if you dedicate yourself to it. Don’t ever let anyone stop you from pursuing anything—especially not something as insignificant as a picture of someone in a yoga pose.

I am a yogi and I LOVE seeing other peoples yoga pictures. It’s always inspiring, no matter what pose somebody does or how advanced they are. It always makes me happy to see somebody else enjoy their practice.
Interesting how easily this person judges others while yoga essentially is all about non-judgement. Who are they to say what “real yoga” is and isn’t?
Keep posting, yogi’s!!

How are we supposed to go from not being able to live on our own or get jobs to completely independence in just one year when all school has taught us is the difference between x and y?

"Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her."
