Be a seeker, not a Believer

Updated: Aug 19, 2022

Yoga is not a belief system. You’re not expected to believe something.

Belief is the domain of religion. Religion asks you to believe in God and also many other explanations it offers. 

You need to believe something which can’t be experienced through either sensory organs or the mind.

Yoga, on the other hand, asks you to question. Question the world around you. Question the world within. Question not being a rebel, but being a seeker.

Yoga asks you not to be a believer but a seeker. Be a student of life, exploring it as an experience.

You may not get all the answers to your questions. It’s not the goal anyway! It’s about the questioning attitude. The more you question, the better the evolution of the seeker inside. It makes you a student of life.

If you are looking for a ‘do’s and don’ts manual, a guideline system, Yoga is not for you. It offers a variety of techniques, viewpoints.

However, it is you will have to experiment and find better ways each time. This in turn makes life a mindful practice.
