"Step into the light. Unseen forces are cheering you on." Cheryl Richardson
This month we are talking about TRUE - being true, living true, exploring our truth. Last week we talked about how truth asks us to be brave, free, and non-judgmental. Satya or truth asks us to, mindfully in the present, ask ourselves "what is true right now" so that we can let go of the old ideas that restrict us from living our truest lives.
Releasing what doesn't support us, opening our eyes to new ideas and reevaluating our values and truths constantly, defining and redefining our TRUTH. It can be hard. It can be really hard to look at what you once believed to be wholly true for you and in the new light of information, and life changes, realize things no longer align with your inner value system and life dreams. No one said truth is easy.
"I heard a voice that told me I'm essential. How all my fears are limiting my potential. Said it's time to step into the light and use every bit of power I have inside." India Arie
Light has a way of shining in every corner, lighting up the good, the bad and the crazy. It lights up the things we often wish would stay hidden but in dragging those out, shining a light there, we become more free. The weight of shadow, guilt and fear begins to dissipate.
Truth is hard because often we think it might be easier to just go along with something, agree for the sake of peace or make choices because they seem easier. But, eventually, as many of you probably have already experienced, the truth comes out and then everyone is angry and frustrated. What would have happened had the boundary of truth and respect been already in place? Yes, truth can be a boundary. It's a place where you say this is where I am at right now and you are there and we are both okay so let's be respectful.
When you hold back in the shadows you limit your potential. You can be doing so much more as a free, nonjudgmental, brave soul. You can change the world, share YOUR light, BE all that you can but you have to live your truth and that means stepping into the light and letting it shine brightly on every little aspect of your life.
"A pure heart open to the light, will be filled with the very essence of Truth." Rumi
Be open, be brave and open up to the light. Fill yourself with the TRUTH.
See you on the mat!
I have been "playing" and experimenting with yoga, aromatherapy and healthy living since my late teens - researching, testing, reading, investigating, and learning anything that would make my life - and the lives around me - better naturally.
