Every achievement in life starts with a dream. This dream can lead you into a brand new life, if you start planting the seeds to grow. Think of the great inspirer in your life or look at Martin Luther King. He started once with a dream.
Don’t ever think you can’t be an inspirer. Think big, you will be big. Think Love, you will be Love.
For many years I didn’t take my dreams serious, until that moment in life where I just knew I had to burst out of it. Years before, living in an ashram in India I felt that one day my path would lead me to a Yoga teacher training, to deepen my love for the Yoga philosophy. I believed that Yoga would lead me to my path. But India wasn’t home; I was drawn to Bali. So the plane dropped me off at the Island of Gods, Bali, to find my dream and life purpose. Gosh, I was afraid, but even more afraid that my life would just go by, without ever knowing. Gosh, what a journey I was about to experience!
Being on this path I asked myself some soul questions. What is your talent? Your passion and your greatest dreams? Taking time to plant the seeds of my dreams and see how my next reality would unfold. Of course, I was impatient but my dear ones told me to not be hasty. Same for yoga, ou flow naturally and grow organically into your yoga practice. Your life and reality will not change over night. Your seeds need to be nurtured for them to grow. Similar to a beautiful art-work, one draws every line consciously, and one choose his/her colors wisely from the heart.
So if you find yourself in this process remember to cherish your visions. Embrace the beat of your heart and surround yourself with friends and people that support you. This is important because the world around us is not always supportive about change. Don’t let yourself get distracted on your path by it. For me, the most important advice I can offer, is to stay focused along the path; no distractions or excuses for yourself.
If you haven’t figured out what your dream is, but you feel something happening down in your gut reading this blog, I can give some questions to answer:
- Name 5 things you are most proud of?
- Name 5 things you will be most proud of?
- What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
Answer these questions and let them sink in for a while. Rewrite them if you want to over a period of a few days. Remember your yoga mantra: grow naturally and organically. Don’t worry if you don’t have a whole plan ahead. Cross that next bridge when you get to it.
‘All the beautiful dreams you have, reside in your own soul. Find your way by reaching within’.
