The essence of yoga
Circumstances are always neutral.
And 'our reaction to them that gives them meaning,
making them look good or bad,
pleasant or unpleasant, useful or beautiful.
The objective conditions are always neutral.
It 's just the way we react to them
ce that makes them look good or bad.
Work on yourself:
on your reactions to external circumstances.
This is the essence of yoga:
neutralizing the reaction of the heart waves.
Always be happy intimately.
You never are able to change things outwardly
to make them more pleasant for you.
- Paramhansa Yogananda
