There’s a statement from the Greek philosopher Heraclitus that says, “You cannot step into the same river twice.” Because water is continually flowing in the river, so it only makes sense that you cannot step into the same river twice. The underlying message here is that change is constant.
And this something that the yogis are really comfortable with. They believe that change is the one that one thing that we can be sure of, so why not accept it.
Today, in Feel Good Friday Yoga, I recounted a story about a farmer and his wife and how they encounter ups and downs in their life. The story invites us to accept and be thankful for what is true in our bodies and our minds at this moment, on this day. And know that change can be just a breath away.
