Living the Yogis Life: Practice and Non-Attachment, Relax and Receive
No matter how much effort you put in it is only half of the exchange. In yoga it is traditionally stated that you strive with intense focus (practice or abhyasa) while simultaneously releasing your attachment to the fruits of your labor (non-attachment or vairagya). That which you attain you receive from a power greater than yourself so that in the attainment of the goal you maintain your humility. Sometimes the hardest work is in resting in the knowledge that who are is enough and that you don’t need to do anything or be anyone other than yourself to be worthy of all the greatness that you seek. In yoga and life you can only do so much, then there’s nothing left to do except relax and let it all in.
