Many people in this world seek things that are external to us – money, power, trophy wives/husbands, social ranking, who’s got the fastest cars, who’s got the biggest diamonds, who’s got the most friends on FB. Many of us also judge one’s success purely based on those possessions and/or status. I am not here to judge their desires as I too have more possessions than I ever really need or deemed as necessity.

While we look for external items to keep our minds occupied, how many of us realize that we will never be able to hold on to any of these material possessions/status when we leave this world? Is it possible to say that we chase after these possessions/status all of our lives just to lose them all when we die? If so, then why do the most of us compromise our health, our heart, our integrity, our family/friends, and our happiness just to secure these possessions/status?

I have been looking for answers for a few years now and I know for a fact that having the possessions/status have made me temporary happy, but I was always perpetually hungry as I always wanted “one up” the last achievement. “Happiness moments” so I thought, were short-lived followed by more desires, and more hunger.

Since I started this yoga journey more than six years ago, I began to look inward and started looking for answers to my questions:

  • Who am I?
  • Why am I here?
  • Why do I see so many successful people so unhappy?
  • What do I want to do with the next chapter of my life?
  • What do I want to get out of my life?
  • What truly makes me happy?

One of my Yogini friends, a true inspiration to me, suggested that I start blogging. I thought to myself, “I’m not a writer. English is my second language. My grammar is not the best. My friends think I tell the worst jokes. I can’t possibly write and so on and so on…” I figure I’m just going to write from my heart.

Now, I’m going to let the next chapter of my life unfold and I would like to invite you to explore with me the journey inward… Nameste
