Some of us, we love to spend time to learn new stuffs in life, we love to learn but never put into practice.

Do you think you can master the skill?

When the first time, I joined for yoga class, I am so hesitate and concern that ” My body is not flexible at all, how can I practice yoga.” I doubt and kept asking myself.

During one of the lesson, I need to stand still with one leg and act as a “TREE”. My body was kept shaking, not balance at all, I can’t standstill like a tree. However, My teacher kept motivate us  “Be diligent! Do your best! Most important continue your practice! You can see a difference.”

This is so profound. Without diligent in our practice, we can’t achieve any result.

I committed to practice yoga in early morning, I made changes in my life, to wake up earlier, it became a habit, just like brushing teeth daily.

Now, I am doing better in yoga, my body is more flexible and also I can do balancing.

It’ll never happen if we don’t put time in practice.

It’s the same in meditation, we can learn all techniques, if we don’t practice, you can’t meditate well too, you might complain, body pain, leg pain, restlessness…

“Teacher is always ready to teach, most important student must diligently in practice.” This is the advice from one of my master.

You can’t know how to swim by learning theory, you can’t know how to play tennis by learning theory too, you can’t know how to drive by learning theory…

I believe you’ve the same experience too..

It’s apply the same to your spiritual practice…. Be diligence!

“To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.” By Buddha

  1. People often look back and wish they had started practising something at a younger age. Like you said the key is to persevere and practice diligently, without judgement, whatever your goal is. Great post, keep up the great work!
