Nearly everyone who begins to study Ayurveda begins dispensing advice to everyone around them. Mom, you should try neti for your allergies. Dad, you should start meditating. Partner, here’s how we’re going to eat from now on. Child, practice yoga with me.
Enthusiasm is a fossil fuel — handy but unsustainable. Dispensing wisdom to people who are unable to hear it wastes everyone’s energy and leaves the advisor feeling ineffective.
One willing listener is enough to turn enthusiasm into mastery. Look for that person. They are definitely looking for you.
