Taking purposeful steps in life is hard – it requires staying aware, in the present moment, and not being bound by the chitter-chatter of the monkey mind or the societal pressures we all face. Yoga, meditation, prayer, reflection help us stay in alignment and on our purposeful path. When we come to a crossing on our path, we have this opportunity to slow down, pause, and then choose the path that is most in alignment to our true purpose. Our society tells us to move fast, make big decisions in flash seconds. But, does it ever hurt to take even 24 hours, or sometimes even longer, to pause and stand still to figure out if the opportunity to change course on our path is truly the most appropriate direction?
