One of the greatest reasons of practicing yoga is that it connects us with our mind, body and soul.
In my yoga class, I see many students with the tight hips. With the proper yoga sequence, poses and regular practice, you can release the tightness.
But the real problem is not our body, it’s our mind. We have a tendency of holding everything inside. We do not let things go that easily. Whether it’s physical things, emotions or grudges – we don’t let go. And it will eventually reflect on our body.
When you find you have tight hips, that means you hold your emotions inside and you don’t let old things go. Our body is our temple. It’s our responsibility to clean our home and the same way we have to clean our body as well as clear our mind. It is so that our soul can reside in peacefully. If you see clutter in the house and if you don’t do anything to clear that clutter, you will find dust eventually. Same way if we keep grudges inside our mind, eventually there will be clutter of so many negative thoughts and emotions which can turn into tumour.
So now the real question is how to work on this old pattern of holding emotions/grudges inside. Grab a person you see next time, tell him/her how you feel for him/her. Untie the knot without thinking of the consequences. And if the person is out of your reach, remember this person, bring him in your awareness and pray for this person to be happy, healthy and then let this person go. This is a process of letting things go from your mind from your awareness.
We should do whatever is in our hand or in our reach to be happy and healthy. Health is not only related to the body but the biggest part is our mind our emotions.
As per Sadhguru, past is your memory, tomorrow is ur imagination or expectation, present is the real so be in this moment live in this moment.
It’s never late to start something good. 😀👍
