OBSTACLES ON THE PATH OF YOGA, Patanjali
9 Obstacles on the Path we might experience in our daily lives that make it difficult to achieve things.
Vyadhi-disease or physical disease
Styana– apathy, depression, lack of interest, boredom
Bhrantidarsana– false vision, living in illusion
Alabdhabhumikatva– unsteady condition of mind
Anavasthitatva– inability to maintain achievement
Avirati (craving, trying to learn or do everything in a very short period of time) is the one I used to relate the most (still a bit now!) but not the only one. Unfortunately, they work very well together, once I trigger the Avirati then Alabdhabhumikatva appears because I feel overwhelmed and I start to have issues staying on the journey and Anavasthiatatva… I can keep going and going but let’s say those ones are pretty much my combination!
I BELIEVE IN ACKNOWLEDGING THE OBSTACLES IS THE WAY TO COMBAT THEM. Understanding the obstacles we face can be the first step to change old patterns.
