Times can be tough for all of us, you move between having stuff figured out and then bam something happens and you are thrown off course. You start to doubt yourself, you start to berate yourself, you wonder why you bother and then boom you are in total disarray and chaos sets in. But each morning there is sunrise, there is light, there is newness and there is an opportunity to embrace that newness.
In my reading this morning at sunrise Desikachar reminded me that Yoga is a modality that allows deep insight and wisdom to get through these tough times. That Jñana yoga allows me space to know that all knowledge lied hidden within me. Bhakti yoga teaches me that I serve a higher power far greater than myself. Mantra to protect me when I need that protection. Rāja yoga to honour the king that resides within me, the purusa, the Self. Karma yoga to know that my effort in everything I do is not determined by outcome but rather by action. Kriyā yoga looking inside, practice, practice, practice.
Final call for Sunday’s workshop on Compassion with Dr. Jane Uyger. An afternoon for learning about compassion, restorative yoga, Cacao & the most amazing food lovingly prepared by Lisa Davies. Book in here.
Some kind words from Jayne Hardy –
Being our true selves opens us up to rejection. Even though we can’t be everyone’s cup of tea, whoever we are….There are times when fear tells is that we won’t get through this. We don’t have what it takes. We’re not strong nor brave enough…Love is what we need, don’t believe fear when it diminishes who you are and who you could be….You will get through this. You absolutely have what it takes. You are strong and brave. You are deserving of all the wonderfulness there is.Kind Words for Unkind Days.
