Today is the day of gratitude. To have kindly thoughts of acknowledgement and appreciation in your life. But what exactly is it to appreciate something? Appreciation is to value highly and to be fully conscious of it….to be aware. Yoga is a practice of self-awareness so today I invite you to be grateful for yourself. For all your body does, for your uniqueness and for your Light.
The probability of you being born is about one in 40 trillion. You are a precious incarnation. Love yourself. Appreciate yourself. Be the best you. Saying “I am my best” is the power of intention. It is inexhaustible. Saying “I am the best” is rooted in fear and fed by the ego. Through loving yourself and others you disarm the ego and starve it. We desperately need to nourish ourselves with positive attitudes if we are to change the energetics globally. Cultivate self-love and your presence will make a difference.
So how do we do this when our mind is conditioned to judge and analyze? Calm the mind. Thinking wastes your energy. Feeling conserves your energy. Feel love and you will be love. A flower doesn’t make an effort to send its fragrance. It is it’s true nature. You are love for love is the living infinity. Experience each moment as it unfolds and relish it. Love every moment. Shine on yogis, Namaste.
