Yoga this Week – June 10, 2018

 

 

   “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”

warr iii let go
The art of detachment or, Vairagya in Sanskrit, 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 disappointment, anger or inadequacy 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 attempt to gratify our senses and satisfy the ego which can never truly be satisfied.  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 trust our spiritual guides to lead 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.

Yoga this Week – June 3, 2018 (No Friday Class)

Lost

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.

— David Wagoner
(1999)

Greetings dearest yoga students,

The Avalon Yoga hike was a beautiful experience.  There is such sacredness found right under our feet, wherever we happen to be. The above poem by David Wagner speaks to the power of stillness and presence.  There is great wisdom in just learning to be quiet and still and “letting the forest find you”. If you feel lost, unsure or confused about where you are going, I suggest you take his advice and “Stand Still”; chances are very good that what you are seeking is right there in front of you just waiting for your path to find you.
