When you are upset about something, it is your problem and your problem alone. Yoga and other spiritual traditions give us the tools we need to deal with our problems at their source, in our own hearts and minds, so we can live in peace and have compassion for others. You cannot teach, share, or create peace if you yourself don’t have it.
This does not mean that we cannot clearly see that sometimes things are less than ideal, unfair, or need to change. However, we don’t need righteous indignation to do this. Both Gandhi and Martin Luther King proved that it is possible to create necessary change with peace and love in your heart. Not only did they show this is possible, but this is also really the only way to create lasting, effective change.
