Yoga this Week – September 7, 2013
“Detachment is simply letting go of all you hold fast to in your mind. It doesn’t actually mean losing anything, simply changing your relationship with the things in your life today. The greatest pleasure for every soul comes as a result of choosing detachment. Why? Because attachment is a form of slavery that takes place in our own minds. And the result of detachment? Real freedom”

The art of detachment is the practice of showing up, doing your best and letting go of the results acknowledging the basic truth that everything in life has its perfect moment. It is the realization that if we do not get what we want (even if it seems like the perfect job, perfect person, perfect place, perfect opportunity, etc.) that there is probably a better time for that situation to materialize in our lives or more often than not, it may be something that is never supposed to happen at all. When we truly are able to detach from the outcome we release the dissapointment, anger or inadaquacy we feel when things don’t turn out as we thought they should. Thinking we will find our happiness in someone or something outside ourselves is only an atempt to gratify our senses and satisfy the ego which can never truly be satified. Acting from a place of attachment and clinging is acting from fear.
The opposite of fear is faith. So in contrast, the art of letting go actually allows you to access the peace of mind you seek. We can learn to live and let live, look at closed doors as opportunities and learn trust our spiritual guides to take us where we need to be. When we make decisions from a truly detached place; from a place of calm abiding, wisdom and love, we set the inner spirit free to move us toward all that is good, true, right and lovely in our lives.

Letting go of summer and beach yoga (we had some wonderful, interesting, wild experiences down there this year!!) is not easy but September and October are two of my favorite months! Enjoy the beautiful weather and energy that September brings…
