Skill in action

/ June 29, 2014/ Recipes, Yoga/ 2 comments

Just finished the restorative teacher training today. It is going to take me months to assimilate all the wisdom that I learned! But I want to share this tid bit with you today.

From the Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 48 to 60:
Perform your work in the world, dear seeker as one who is fully established within themselves, without selfish attachments and alike in success and defeat. For yoga is perfect evenness of the mind…seek refuge in the attitude of detachment and you will amass the wealth of spiritual awareness. Those who are wholly motivated by and attached to the results of their actions are miserable for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do… when consciousness is unified, however, all vain anxiety is left behind and there is no cause for worry whether things go well or ill. Therefore devote yourself to the disciplines of yoga, for yoga is skill in action.

In our practice, lets stop worrying about how good or bad we are, how flexible, or how strong. Lets focus instead on having a steady and regular practice without any attachment to duration. Lets focus on our breath, reach that place where we connect with our inner divine, and experience true bliss!

Try it! I know letting go is hard but it has its rewards not only in yoga but also in daily life. Let me know how it goes.

  1. Beautiful! I love it. I am working towards it but not there yet. Some days more in the flow than others. I will keep practicing detachment from outcomes though as it is so much better to do what you love without worrying about what it will bring. That porridge looks awesome!! Xxx

    1. Sarah you seem right on track! remember you are perfect as you are. The porridge tastes awesome too… but don’t take my word for it!
