What could be more pleasant than ALLOWING the world to come in to you?
There are 2 potential routes in life/yoga/being.
In one, we try to push our agenda, try to control, try to dictate the outcomes.
In the other, we accept things as they unfold, relinquish control to a cosmic source and do our best to be content with the outcomes.
I'm going for the second. The second path, the path of ALLOWANCE asks us to practice VAIRAGYA or non-attachment to outcome. It's darn hard, since we want things to turn out the way we want them to turn out.
But, I happen to thing it's worth the effort (or non-effort!). Just to reduce a little bit the tendency to grasp, to desire something different, feels like the right direction for me.
