One of the best tests of my spiritual practice is Change. I am not the best person with change. I like to get into a rhythm and find a nice groove to my days.
Right now I am in the end stages of buying my first home. Talk about a lot of change! Moving is always a big shift and there will be many firsts with this next phase of my life. I will not say that I have gone through this process with a calm and relaxed demeanor. Some of it, I have been stressed, over-thinking and have gotten quite emotional. Luckily, I have a wonderful, understanding husband and family. And, of course, I have my yoga practice.
Yoga and meditation have taught me that every moment is changing. Each day, each hour, each breath is different. And the more we try to cling to something, the more we suffer. Our work in yoga is in Practice (Abhyasa) and Non-Attachment (Vairagya). “The combination of practice and nonattachment leads to becoming an individual who develops his or her capacities to the fullest and who is guided by a clear, selfless mind.” – Inside the Yoga Sutras by Reverend Jaganath Carrera
Everyday I practice yoga and everyday I change. Each moment is a new start.
