Yoga this Week July 23, 2011

We will only discover the nature of our particular genius
when we stop trying to conform to our own or other people’s models,
learn to be ourselves,
and allow our natural channel to open.”
                                                    Shaki Gawain

 

Svadhyaya 

The fourth Niyama (or observance) in the Eight Limb Path of yoga is the study of the self.

Like so many yoga practices, svadhyaya is the process of getting to know who we really are; our true self.  Yoga asana, pranayam, and meditation are all ways to peel off the layers of our false selves.  Doing this and staying present to the process is not always easy.  As we peel the layers and really look at our exposed wounds, memories, conditionings and patterns, we may feel more confused and defeated than when we began.  Trust the process and turn again and again to those spiritual teachers that came before us.  They are there to guide us; in books, in music, in our dreams, our prayers or maybe sitting right across from us at work, home or in our communities.  As we work to let go of others (or even our own) ideas of who we should be, the more open and compassionate to our own “particular genius”  we can become and the more our “natural channels” to the divine open and our dharma (life’s purpose) is revealed.
