“The yogi feels that the collection or hoarding of things implies a lack of faith in God and in himself to provide for the future….By the observance of aparigraha, the yogi makes his life as simple as possible and trains his mind not to feel the loss or the lack of anything. Then everything he really needs will come to him by itself at the proper time.”
Dear Yoga Students,
Hoping this evening finds you resting in the sweet, nourishing power that faith can provide. Aparigraha reminds us that when we feel no lack, we are free; free to give, free to rest, free to believe that we have everything we really need. When we come from this power of faith, we can trust in the future, even when it is unclear. Non-attachment, no-hoarding and non-clinging is really all about letting go. Letting go creates the serenity we so crave for. Much like a trapeze artist must let go of the first ring before they can catch the second, that moment in mid air can be scary and uncomfortable, but they cannot move forward unless they let go first; we must learn the art of letting go. Let it become sadhana (practice) by letting go of some of the heaviness of holding on to people, places or things in your life and jump with faith, trust and the knowing that the universe won’t only just catch you, but help you to soar.
Thank you to all who showed up to practice this morning on the beach and contribute by donating to The Invited Inn at Trinity Church in Rocky Point. It was a special treat to practice to the rhythmic sounds of Billy’s Djembe drum, the gentle waves hitting the shore and the cool breeze flowing all around us. It was truly a beautiful morning!!
