First put the oxygen mask on yourself!
We have been instructed to first put the oxygen mask on ourselves in case of emergency on a flight, then put it on others who can not do it themselves. In the same manner, you need to uplift yourself and help yourself first before helping others.
The oxygen coming from the oxygen mask is the life prana (vital energy )and wisdom knowledge that comes from the long tradition of Gurus and Yogis. We just have to expose ourselves to this source of knowledge and our complicated life falls in place and we develop proper perspective about ourselves and what we should be doing. The airplane journey, metaphorically, is our life, we take off, and there are unseen turbulences.
One-month Sivananda Teacher Training
Taking one month out of your life to do the Yoga Teachers training course seems a long time and a big investment but really it is not a luxury. Putting the oxygen mask on yourself first is not a selfish act, it is necessary . Once in a lifetime, we all need to do this, learning for the first time or re learning in the wisdom school, things abut yourself that you have not been taught in normal secular education system. To pass it on to others and become a Yoga teacher is another question to consider later. Once you have something valuable, automatically you would want to share with others.But first we need to know that we do not know the truth and ask the right questions. We need to know that we know uptill now about ourselves and others can be seen in a larger context of our spiritual evolution. And everything starts to make sense.
