Thought Bite: Cycles

One of the curious things of life is that certain challenging situations happen again and again. A friend of mine used to call these repeating circumstances "lessons."

After seeing this happening many times in my life, I believe she was on to something. It does seem as if certain difficulties come back, over and over, to give another shot at getting through them with more grace, more intelligence, and less upset. 

Although such situations might be frustrating, a person who is on the Yoga path might view them as opportunities to overcome problematic past karma. Resolving our karma is one of the reasons, according to the Yoga tradition, to be in a body.

So, next time you find this happening to you, you might play with viewing the situation as an opportunity rather than as an annoyance.
