Damn it has felt a long time since I felt the heat of the sun on my skin. Walking the kids to school this morning was so pleasant. The scent of jasmine in the air, those tiny white flowers is quite heady and instantly recognisable. Kids are whirring about smiling knowing the summer holidays are coming. Parents are slowly making it to the end of term, making plans for lazy days of beach time and perhaps reading that book that’s gathering dust on the shelf.
In our outdoor practice, the trees are in full bloom. The blue skies and warm sun overhead is a reminder that as the Earth moves in cycles so do we. It’s just a wonder each day seeing the sunrise, the sun set, there’s comfort in knowing that this happens each and every day. Turning points like graduations, birthdays, weddings even death pulls us into memories, nostalgia and moments of truth.
All these places allow us to grow, that’s where yoga is such a wonderful tool. It is the technology that allows us to check in physically, mentally and spiritually. How have I grown from my 1st, 21st or 31st years of sunrises? Am I happy? Do the flowers that reside within me bloom? When we feel these moments of happiness, these moments of unhappiness; there is learning there, tune into the learning and grow.
Yoga asks you to break free of all attachments or yearnings. To step into your true Self. I will leave you with a quote from Krishna –
Let your concern be with the action alone, and never with the fruits of the action. Do not let the results of your action be your motive, and do not be attached to inaction.Krishna
