Are you happy? I don’t mean just in this moment, but in all moments. Day to day, we all have situations that cause us irritation, anger or annoyance. But underlying that, are we happy? That really depends on us and not on our circumstances. Circumstances come and go. Sometimes when we reflect back on a time when things in our life didn’t seem so good, we can’t remember the specifics of how we got to that negative emotional place. If we can acknowledge that life circumstances don’t create our internal happiness, we can begin to work on our “inside” happiness. That happiness can see us thru these incidental times of turmoil that we all have.
I find that lot of us are looking for a path that we can follow that will lead us to internal happiness while also helping us deal with the day to day realities of living. For some, a yoga practice can be part of that path. Remember, yoga isn’t just stretches, it is multiple techniques that we can use to bring calm, joy and happiness into our life.
Consider joining us on Monday 4/14 from 6:30-8:00 pm at the UU Church of Fresno for a yoga practice that will include stretches, meditation, and breathing that will offer guidance to you on your path. All are welcome!
