We see the world according to your own Vritti

Vritti are the disturbances of the mind. Like the reflection of the moon on the water. If the water is not calm, the reflection of the moon is obscured. 

When our mind is disturbed by the winds of life, by change, by disruptions or challenges in life, we cannot see ourselves clearly.  Our divine nature, like the moon, is always there, but our view of it is distorted.

Vritti are always with us. They come to us from our family, friends, society, teachers, and our own unique life experience.  They can change throughout our life. The good news is that they can be modified and lessened. 

The practice of Yoga works to calm these disturbances of the mind so that we may see, and reflect, our own divine natures more clearly. When we calm the vrittis, the disturbances of the mind, we are better equipped to respond to people and situations with compassion and love. 

Following the true path of Yoga teaches us to control the body and to calm the mind. Asanam is only one part, the easiest part, some might say. Start from the physical to release the spiritual. 

Change your mind, and you can change your world.
