We are partners in a team. We always have each other’s back and there when we need each other. Something Natasha was very grateful for, her whole life was spent not trusting people and not settling down in routines. So once she started to live in Stark Tower with the team, she become a different person. She learnt to enjoy life, rather than take it so seriously and look over her for shoulder cautiously every moment of the day. Steve was new to this generation and with Natasha still learning about the new reality around her too, they helped each other out. She learnt that as well as his clashing ego with Tony she had witnessed multiple times, he was also such a down to earth guy. Maybe he was a super soldier and an avenger, but his personality to women especially her, he had so much respect. She respected him too, she couldn’t imagine waking up 70 years later without Clint or Bruce and live her life normally like Steve was doing. To her it was astonishing and it truly earned her admiration for the guy. .
If a door closes, quit banging on it.
Whatever was behind it was not meant for you. Consider that perhaps the door was closed because you’re worth so much more than what was on the other side.

A controversial video about modern yoga by Sivarama Swami has been circulating on the internet over the past week and I have been asked a few times whether I agree with what this yogi has to say ( basically, that yoga lost its soul and turned into farce). While it is true that commercialization of yoga has taken it away from its purest form, let’s look more deeply into it before we jump to conclusions and judge with a narrow vision. On the plus side, there are millions of people nowadays who practice asana to improve their physical body. Is that so bad? For one thing, we need a healthy body to sit comfortably to meditate, to stay focused, content ( all practices of Raja yoga). Thousands of years ago people lived in nature and walked. Now people sit at desks, drive cars and have so much stress. Asana practice can be very healing if done correctly. Besides, asana is one of the eight limbs of yoga, and Patanjali says that no limb is more superior than others. Maybe someone starts out concerned with their yoga pants or expensive mat and somewhere along the way- though coincidence, a friend, a workshop- learns that yoga practice is so vast that it can be done anytime, anywhere. Maybe this person will learn about basic principles of yoga, such as ahimsa- non violence, and eventually will try to apply those principles in daily life off the mat. I believe we should not judge the way a person enters yoga but simply say ‘welcome’ and continue our own practice to the point where we inspire others with our words and actions and DO NOT have time to make a video criticizing somebody else’s way of practice. Yoga has been around for thousands of years and will continue. This is its current incarnation which grew and evolved to stay relevant as the times changed. Namaste! 🙏🏼❤️ #yoga#yogapractice#yogapants#yogaphilosophy#goalofyoga#asana#asanapractice#eightlimbsofyoga#love#nonjudgement#nonviolence#ahimsa#stayopenminded#traditional#traditionalyoga#raja#rajayoga#patanjali#yogastudent#yogateacher#yogaclass#supersoldier#crazypose
