When you have feelings of unhappiness, where do they come from? Current situations, or past situations, or a combination of both?
The more I learn about Yoga, the more I come to realize that this is a life-long practice that takes patience and dedication. And every once in a while (or more often than that), you slip. You let the past get the best of you – old feelings emerge, which can bring up feelings of unhappiness.
The past is the past, and “getting past the past” is possible, if you work really hard at it. There’s forgiveness, and resolution, and letting go. And it’s tough work.
If you’re willing to do the work, happiness will come.
