Yoda said “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” and he couldn’t have been more right.
Stop trying to be something, or someone, and start being it. Start being grateful, happy, abundant and full of love. Start feeling that way all the time, not trying to. Not trying to be in the pursuit of those things. Just be them.
If you want something, have it. See where it is already and be in that energy. Be in that place, be in that feeling. That is what life is about, not trying, but being.
For my yogis out there, stop trying to do yoga, or trying out a pose, be in the pose. Be a yogi. Then you are and it doesn’t matter what anything looks like on the outside, you are in on the inside.
