Sitting with an acquaintance recently, this line came up over and over again. My friend was convinced of his point of view, and certainly I was of mine.
Who is right and who is wrong? There can’t be a right or a wrong. He was speaking with great conviction about his beliefs, just as I was sharing what I thought was right and true from my beliefs. In an attempt to salvage some connection, we kept coming back to , “let’s agree to disagree.”
There are times when you can sit with this old standby to keep the peace but it doesn’t always work.
With so much disagreement how can you experience peace? You can only discount what you feel and what you believe to a point.
No simple answers here. We see the world not as it is but as we are.
My reality is only my reality. My friend’s reality is his.
Peace is not possible with so much internal discord. Sometimes we have to wish others well and move on.
At the end of the day you have to be able to live with yourself.
If you’re constantly compromising your beliefs, there is no peace.
In yoga, we refer to your word as a “seed” or “bija.”
Once you’ve planted that seed it will grow. What you said is out there forever and it can never be taken back.
When you’re about to blurt something out that you know you shouldn’t…Inhale, hold, exhale fully and hold. Your breathing practices aren’t solely for yoga class. Your rate of breathing and state of mind are inseparable. Calm your breath to calm your mind and life.
What you say lives forever. Speak only words of kindness.
While you’re rushing around buying gifts, your friends and family are hungry for your presence.
Self-inquiry is a key part of any yoga practice. Stop and think about what is important to you.
If the people in your life are important to you then be fully present for them. Give them your time and give them your attention.
Allow them to be fully seen, heard, and loved by you.
Choose to do things differently.
