    The Road to More Harmonious Relationships

    The ancient science of yoga offers valuable advice for creating peace and harmony in all our relationships.The key is to cultivate humility and overcome the obstacle of pride.

    First of all, pride makes it almost impossible to learn anything from others. For example, a baseball player may be having problems with his ability to swing a bat. Under the influence of pride, he’ll be reluctant to accept a teacher who’s a specialist at batting, who can see his problems and help him improve it. Pride makes it so one can’t accept the help they need.

    Pride also hurts our personal relationships. For example, a husband may be too proud to admit when he makes a mistake; he’s afraid he’ll lose the love and worship of his wife. Or the wife may not want to admit she doesn’t know everything or she’s not perfect. Pride creates a wall, so we can’t accept advice or constructive criticism from one other. Even if the help is being offered out of love, pride prevents us from accepting that help.

    So many people have a hard time getting along. Why? Because of too much pride we’re not able to put aside. So what can we do on a practical level to overcome this pride? First is to make an effort to cultivate actual wisdom and understanding through the science of yoga. Second is to make an effort in your relationships to actually listen with humility—without being covered by pride.
