Be a student of life

If you are not learning, then you are not growing. If you are not growing, then you are not living.

For us to enjoy this life, we need to be a student of it.  The first step to studentship is to be curious.  This inquisitive nature allows us to be open to the full possibility of what we will discover. This open-minded inquiry helps us to pay attention to the subtle things that can often be ignored.  The second step of studentship is to be committed to the discovery.  Just like we have to practice a new skill to master it, we must be consistent in our practicing of learning and apply it into our lives.

Yoga helps us to discover our hearts- to listen curiously to the ebb and flow of the energy within.  It takes dedication- an inner promise to ourselves, to uncover our inner light.  Having a teacher on this path is important because they have already blazed a path to follow, but ultimately, it is you that needs to take the steps of this journey.  A good teacher helps you know your way, but only you know if it is the right way.
