“is my “yes” coming from a dark corner or from the light in my heart?” ~ c.L.
The word Satya is Sanksrit for truthfulness. It’s a powerful language because it’s a vibrational language and so each word is so much more ~ it literally holds the very essence of the word. Satya means a lot more than “not telling lies”.
Truthfullness is fierce in its demands and magnanimous in it’s offerings.
“When we are real rather than nice, when we choose self expression over self indulgence, when we choose growth over the need to belong, and when we choose fluidity over rigidity, we begin to understand the deeper dynamics of truthfulness, and we begin to taste the freedom and goodness of this jewel.”
“REAL comes from the center of our unique essence and speaks to the moment from that center. Real has a boldness to it, an essence, a spontaneity. Real asks us to live from a place where there is nothing to defend and nothing to manage.”
~ The Yamas + The Niyamas by Deborah Adele
When you connect with your truth and start living from that place, you begin to see the distortion that sits between being nice and being real. Nice is fake. It’s a dreamy illusion of what you think you should look like or sound like or be. Being nice is operating from a place of inauthenticity because you think you will be accepted.
Bring real or truthful, means you are operating from your center, your innate sense of self. You are brave and authentic and honest and true. Make it a part of your practice to be real and authentic and see what unfolds for you.
Burning time waiting for my dogs to come back from galavanting in the woods.
This pose is also called Chin pose. You actually balance on your chin! I hadn’t ever been able to do it until recently.
