“If it isn’t true, it has to go.”
Speaking with many of my friends who are actively living spiritual paths, this seems to be what’s going on at this time in our Earth’s evolution.
It’s about returning to the essence of who you are . . . Consciously making the effort to let go of the things that wrap you in forgetfulness or doubt or numbness or disbelief.
I’ve been doing a lot of reconsidering around the perspectives I hold, and if they are coming from my own intuitive knowing or if they have been picked up from outside sources.
Sometimes it can be tricky to know what is yours and what is not: what is conditioned from society and upbringing, or what you’ve taken as an idea of yourself that isn’t your own truth.
And yet it is vital, in order to live fully as your most realized self, to be able to differentiate between what is true for you and what is not.
Yoga tells you that you do not need to look outside yourself for answers.
It calls you back to your breath, your heart, your intuitive knowing–the source of who you are.
Coming home to your truth often means letting go of the things you’ve held onto that no longer fit, no longer support, and with which you no longer identify.
It means remembering that all of the “things to do” and the busy-ness of life are temporary–that the mistakes we make are such small things in the grand scheme of life.
Coming home to your truth is coming home to what really matters to you.
What is that for you? What is the most meaningful aspect of who you are? What are the things in life that make your heart sing?
When you come to your yoga mat, or sit for meditation, you give yourself the time and space to feel into your truth, and gently, gratefully and gracefully let go of anything that no longer serves.
Yoga says to you, “Let go of the grasping, the seeking of outside sources for fulfillment, because everything you need is within you.”
