Practice Acceptance. – In yoga, as in life, you won’t always be able to do things exactly the way that you want to do them. Perfectionism, trying to do more than is really possible (or even desirable) can lead to pain, injury and loss of productivity and life energy. When you’re sincerely invested in something, whether it’s a yoga practice, a task at work or a relationship, if you do your absolute best and proceed mindfully, it is enough. It could even be called perfect. Accepting what arises will create more internal harmony which inevitably results in greater ease of being with the people around you.
As an aside, albeit a slightly cheeky and provocative one, if you’re not truly invested, what are you doing there? That’s a whole other can of worms, aye?
