Yoga this Week – January 7, 2012

Satya – To seek and honor the truth in yourself, others and the world

(Sat-Truth + Ya-that which is of the essence)

“Probably the hardest form of this practice [commitment to satya] is being true to our own heart and inner destiny. Confusion and mistrust of our inner values can make it difficult to know the nature of our heart’s desire, but even when we become clear enough to recognize what truth means for us, we may lack the courage and conviction to live our truth. Following what we know to be essential for our growth may mean leaving unhealthy relationships or jobs and taking risks that jeopardize our own comfortable position. It may mean making choices that are not supported by consensual reality or ratified by the outer culture. The truth is rarely convenient. One way we can know we are living the truth is that while our choices may not be easy, at the end of the day we feel at peace with ourselves”

Donna Fhari

Greetings Dear Yoga Students,

Hope this email finds you well, embracing the truth of your life whatever is put before you at this moment. I hope you enjoyed practicing ahimsa (non-violence) and that you continue to do so as the year moves forward for Ahimsa is at the core of all yogic practices.
We now come to our second out of five yamas: Satya (truthfullness) which requires clear seeing, courage and steadfastness. Try and be aware of situations in which you tend to color or deny the truth with yourself or others. Be aware without judgement if you think another is bending what you believe to be the truth taking into consideration that we only see the world through our own individual lense. Practing satya is having the courage and faith to first clear your own lense and then act on what you see with a compassionate heart.

“Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises?  If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drumer.  Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away”
                                      Henry D. Thoreau
 
 Greetngs dearest yoga students,How often do we try to keep pace with our companions?  Pushing forward towards an ideal when we’re not even sure we connect to its truth.  Our society, families, friends all have ideas of how we should live our life.  It is time now to find your own truth.  Listen closely to your heart as you approach a decision.  What truly resonates for you may be quite different from those around you. Do something because you understand why you are doing it deep down in your core and it makes sense for you and those around you.  Give yourself space to feel into the question, check in with your physical, mental and emotional energies, they are the guides to your intuitive nature which always knows what is right.  Take a breath, get yourself in a calm state and have the patience and faith to listen to what your higher self is telling you. Trust yourself enough to be guided from within, not because you feel you need to adhere to some arbitrary code that others have laid out for you.  We live and let live which means we also honor that others have their own path, we niether judge or retaliate; we honor their decision and go our own way to decide for ourselves.

You cannot discover new oceans until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

Most importatnly,  don’t be afraid to fail.  It is in taking risks, trying out new ways of being that we find ourselves and create the life we were meant to live.  Nothing would get done if we all waited untill we did it perfectly.  Encourage yourself with compassion, focus, vision and a little light hearted humor.   It is in the falls we take that we learn how to endure, create and make this world a better place for ourselves and others.

Thanks to all who showed up for the Relay for Life on Friday,  It was HOT but lot of fun to see people of all ages enjoying their yoga and their community.  It is amazing to see Karma Yoga at its best when a community comes together in selfless service for such an important cause.  Photos to come on my facebook page.  Much thanks also to all of you for congratulating me on my 500 Hour Graduation.  As the journey continues, my hope is to bring all I learn and have learned to you all.
