A step into Yoga signals the conscious decision of one to take matters in one’s own hand, to explore his own self and to know and understand the power that lies within. After all, how much can we change the world outside of us? How far can we go? It is a dynamic world. We change something today but tomorrow it does not stay the same anymore as new ideas and new trends emerge.

But if we grow our understanding of these dynamics and expand our consciousness through certain practices so we can see far and wide, we can then make decisions which will be far reaching and sustainable. The decisions will be based on something bigger than us and hence, less limited to our wants and needs. It will encompass the wider world and be beneficial to  the wider community. As the benefit reaches out to others, they, too, will want to do the same. The ‘pay it forward’ principle will be set in motion. This is how we can change the world. A step at a time, beginning with ourselves. As the great Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi had said ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’.
