“‘It’s dark and hairy!’ says the first one. ‘No it’s bright red and soft!’ says the second one. ‘What are you talking about? It is completely white and juicy!’ says another one. Amazing how perspective can change when you go around a simple apple! Imagine going around the world!”
~ Dr. Danie Beaulieu, PhD, Psychologist and Author
Trying to change our perspective for ourselves is not easy. After all, the way we think mirrors how we see our lives. Yogically this process of self-reflection is known as vichara. It starts by asking outside the box questions to change the habits of our minds. Habits keep us from living up to our potential as we get stuck in seeing things just one way. Yoga teaches us that limiting our vision is a root cause of suffering.
