Journey on and Release the Destination; There Is None. We Are Building!
I have thought about the whole scenario all night and this morning. I feel very peaceful about death. In my personal spiritual walk, I believe that there is a passing into a better, more excellent place. I call it Heaven. I know that once I arrive, all of my questions will be answered, and I will know as I have never known before. This life is a journey with no destination in sight. I feel content knowing that I am journeying towards the Light, and that when I pass on, I will be happier, more complete, and see the face of my Savior.
Difficult yoga postures, problems sitting still in meditation, issues with quieting the mind, and problems dealing with stress, family relationships, work situations, ... are part of that journey. My personal view is that we often fall, but we rise again to travel on towards the goal. If I did not fall occasionally, make mistakes, have a disagreement, struggle in some form or fashion, I would not be moving; I would be stagnant.
When you build an arm balance, an inversion, a standing balance, a pose requiring strength or flexibility, you often do not succeed. However, that is not a failure; it is a journey. You do the preparatory work, you lay the foundation, you get back up, and you try again. Falling is a part of the journey.
