I was reading Yoga Journal’s special daily insight. This seems true
not just of yoga, but also with one’s macrobiotic practice too. It’s
one thing I love about staying true to eating a healthy diet. If
you don’t do yoga, just insert the word macrobiotics for yoga!
In much of conventional medicine, patients are passive recipients of
care. In yoga, it’s what you do for yourself that matters. Yoga gives
you the tools to help you change, and you might start to feel better
the first time you try practicing. You may also notice that the more
you commit to practice, the more you benefit. This results in three
things: You get involved in your own care, you discover that your
involvement gives you the power to effect change, and seeing that you
can effect change gives you hope. And hope itself can be healing.
