Wheeling Along on this Sacred Saga called: LIFE....we need not 'reinvent the wheel'....
The 5th and final niyama is: ISVARA-PRANIDHANA, or surrender to God. This Niyama is asking us to LET GO COMPLETELY. HOW DO WE DO THIS? Yoga invites us to bring our questions to our yoga mat, again and again....to surrender our confusion, our frustration, our joys & celebrations, our grieving, our whining, our winning & losing....all of it....poured forth onto the mat. And, we're told, that our mats receive everything we bring them....
We're also reminded, quite frequently, that we are SPIRITUAL BEINGS having a HUMAN EXPERIENCE... Rolf Gates reminds us that to "be spiritual is to act like an adult, to take responsibility for one's actions, to manifest love in one's interactions..."
We come to our yoga mats to be comforted, and often simultaneously we are confronted with our demons & our angels.
ACT AS IF YOU TRUST YOUR GOD. ~ anonymous
What does this quote mean for me, for you, for each of us, TODAY? There seem to be an awful lot of questions, and not as many answers....and yet, we're continually invited to TRUST, and to LET GO..... How about today, this moment, is there something, some little upset, miscommunication, that we can look at honestly, and release it/surrender it to God? And then, are we willing and able to trust that it'll be okay...?
Are you ready? willing to try to LET GO, and LET GOD?
Let me know how it's going....and, I will do the same....In fact, right now, I am 'naming' something on my mind, in my head, heart & gut, that I don't want to 'carry around with me' anymore, and I'm asking for help w/ the 'load', and turning it over to a POWER GREATER THAN MYSELF.....
om shanti, om peace, om blessings,
