LIVING YOGA PHILOSOPHY
– WITH EMMA PALMER
THE FIVE PILLARS OF CHANGE
The ancient Yogis recognised the powerful capacity of the Yoga teachings to generate significant change; transforming mundane living into a life abundant with harmony, peace and joy. These sages, however, didn’t say that lasting change happens overnight. True change is a gradual process that requires dedication and commitment over a considerable period of time – a concept echoed through a number of sacred texts such as the Hathayogapradipika and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra.
When asking what we are changing into, we’re simply choosing a path that guides us back to our natural state of being; our true essence. This takes great courage to come from a place of unlearning, before re-learning once again as we return home to ourselves in the epitome of the phoenix process, with the opportunity for rebirth and living fully in who we truly are. The teachings of the Mahāvākya Mantra reaffirm this sentiment – asking from an honest and open heart to be guided from the unreal to the real, and from darkness into light. This is where the true essence of our Yoga practice comes alive!
The next instalment of our Living Yoga Philosophy series will explore the ancient guidance of the Five Pillars for effectuating lasting change. These are Dhrti (steadiness and courage), Dhairya (perseverance), Kṣāmā (patience), Vīrya (energy) and Śraddhā (trust). As we delve into these sacred philosophical teachings, we’ll uncover the ways they can be integrated into our daily lives and give this ancient wisdom the wings it was meant to have at this time…
