To be able to find work that we love doing. I think that is such an achievement. To be able to do something we love everyday and to keep loving it everyday. Of course there will be times when we kind of grow tired of what we do as well, it's not a fairy tale where everything ends with happily ever after. We get frustrated and we grow tired. But to keep finding the love and the passion for what we do, I think this is some sort of fulfilment. And if we do love what we do, we will also do our best in perfecting this craft, in keeping on improving and finding things to do better, because we just love it.
I've tried as long as I could to make yoga separate from my way of living, because I wanted to keep the love for yoga alive. I didn't want to come to a point that I lose the love because of my expectations of yoga. And sometimes that is true, sometimes it is not. I still do not consider myself as a yoga teacher, and I probably never will. I'd rather be called a yoga practitioner and I'm just sharing the little I know. Because I have felt the benefits and to keep something so good would be a way of selfishness. I do feel blessed that I can combine this sharing my passion for yoga with an IT job. The IT job keeps me a bit more critical, machine language, 0 and 1, yes and no. And I also love this IT job, I often say because the machine doesn't have feelings, it does what it is told to do, without putting emotion.
The human being is much more complex than the machine. The human being has so much experiences, so much depth and knowledge that sometimes there is no simple answer to the questions. We all have different nature, we all got a different way of nurturing. I cannot debug a human being as I can with a machine. I never know what is going on in the back of their minds, how they are feeling, what are their concerns and what will happen. But that also makes it beautiful. Because even though we are different, we find similarities in our experiences and we try to connect to others in our own way. And I think as long as we do it with kindness and love, we can find a middle point. Communication and openness is the key but it is not always so straightforward.
We work it. We do our best. We keep trying. We persevere. We believe.
