30 Days of Yogi Wisdom – Day 12 featuring Swami Chidvilasananda
“There are so many great treasures and miracles within you, so many magical possibilities hidden inside you. Through discipline, you can make them manifest for you, and in this way, you can make the earth a greater paradise”
Well if this isn’t the most hopeful quote ever! Imagine just for a moment that your body is the container of hundreds of treasures and miracles. That there are so many magical mysteries lying dormant within you just waiting to be unleashed. To have faith in this belief is perhaps one of the keys to unlocking success. To simply trust that those magical possibilities are yours for the taking.
I see so many people who don’t think they’re capable of achieving great things. They think that achievement is only available to the special few – the financially fortunate or the extremely intelligent. They count themselves as the unlucky or the undeserving. They actually believe they’re ‘nothing special.’ The truth is however, that greatness is available to us all if we only just believe it is possible.
The second half of this quote tells us that the way we can access this greatness is through discipline or, in a Sanskrit yoga word, tapas. Hard work, perseverance and dedication combine to give us the opportunity to unleash our endless possibilities. Swami Chidvilasananda hints at the fact that it is our duty to practice this discipline, not just for ourselves, but for the greatness of our planet. Accessing the ‘great treasures’ within is our chance to better our circumstances so we should probably get on it!
