"Those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of action are miserable, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do... the wise work for the welfare of the world, without thought for themselves. Perform all work carefully, guided by compassion... through selfless service you will always be fruitful and find the fulfilment of your desires. This is the promise of the Creator." - Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita.
Do you have desires and wonder if these are ok? Do you take action on them and feel they fulfil you? This week we explore how these are natural and yet to act upon things is the only thing you can do to live, but can we look at how we act and the nourishing and positive effects we can create in doing so.
Where to begin in Yoga... I have been reading a wonderful book entitled 'Laws of Spirit' and it has given me some great inspiration this week to fully look at how when we live with these Laws of Spirit we can live in truth and with our desires. I have learnt the importance to align yourself with integrity. To acknowledge our weaknesses and draw on our inner strength so we become examples and light the way for others.
Moving in to life... only action brings desires to life. Doing leads to understanding and action turns knowledge to wisdom.
Act out of courage, with clear intention and commitment.
Remember that action can also be stillness. All things happen in their own good time.
Listen to the wisdom of your heart. The eb and flow, dancing to the natural music of change. Change is the only constant. It happens in its own way, in its own time - leading us towards greater awareness, wisdom and peace.
Go ahead, cast the first stone - I will not say a thing.
In this weeks class, explore your feelings, needs, conflict and resolutions through taking action on your mat in a practice that has its own eb and flow, guided by compassion. Standing postures and hip openers will lead us through our desires and fulfilment's in our bodies to create the change we may need this week to live presently and fully within ourselves.
Namaste all. x
