attachment

6 Feb

Non-attachment is such an enlightening aspect of yoga that I could probably write a new post every day about it. Today though, I’m working on not getting attached to my thoughts about how or where the new yoga studio should be.

Once again, I’m stepping back and watching my mind get attached to the way things should be. And again, whenever I notice that attachment, I notice that’s right where my suffering comes from.

The type of faith that I had as a child has been replaced with the concept of reality. Somehow, I have to find alignment and acceptance with the fact that things are the way thy are. From that place, comes a new kind of faith, that – that as an integral part of the universe, I can handle whatever comes my way with grace and love.

There is such a peace in knowing that we are all really one of the same piece of consciousness. What’s best for me, is best for you and vice versa. That way of looking at the world keeps me sane, and give me so much more compassion. Being human though, seems to be the process of trying to remember our connectedness instead of getting caught up in the fear around us.
