In the practice of Yoga Asana, we often take a single-pointed gaze to strengthen the pose. In Virabhadrasana (Warrior Pose), for instance, we gaze straight forward or up between our arms as we stand in our power as warriors for peace.
In more contemplative seated poses, we often hold an inner gaze, such as focusing on the darkness behind our closed eyes or bringing our awareness to the eyebrow center.
In either situation, this is called the practice of Dristhi.
But Drishti is much more than choosing a focal point during Yoga practice. Drishti is what you choose to allow into your field of vision and how you choose to see the world.
If you choose to see trouble, sadness and evil, all three will surely reveal themselves to you. If you choose to see grace, joy and divine life, all three will surely reveal themselves to you.
Pay attention to your Drishti. Have a positive outlook. See the best in everything… and the world will offer its very best too you in return.
