Yoga allows us to connect to the inherent intelligence of life, whether you call it prana, love, a form of god or goddess. It is the force that I call the “self-organizing principle” of love that is streaming through everyone and that is surrounding everyone and everything. It is a force that is breathing you, it is a force that guides you. It is a force you can surrender to and trust (sraddha) in every circumstance of life.
Ishvara – Pranidhana is the term in yoga philosophy that expresses this feeling of surrender to that greater force.
Yoga also describes ” skill in action” , which means to connect something, or (re-) act in the right moment. This brings more ease into (y)our life.
You learn to use your energy wisely .
You are not using strength, you take action, you respond in the right moments when it is needed. So you learn to not using your strength and willpower until you are exhausted. Do you know these moments, when you just keep trying and trying and feeling like losing your energy? Then you need to foster patience and trust this intelligence to unfold. You need to release your own will and allow the intelligence to align and synchronize with the outer world.
Nobody can do it alone. You are already doing your best. You just need to listen and be aware and (re-) act and respond in the right moments. Then allow the intelligence to unfold.
