DAILY TRANSFORMATIONAL NUGGETS FOR THE BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT: “Remember” Day 4 – “Be Still and Know”
The Body Connection: Remember, yoga is our invitation to slow down and be present. The asana position, also known as the stillness, requires us to stop and connect with the body and/or something greater. During yoga practice, it is the stillness that invites us to know our divine self. The physical practice of yoga is a metaphorical battle with the big self and the ego. Our soul’s desire is to know serenity and peace, to release the chaotic activity of the mental mind. The Bhagavad Gita, sacred scriptures for the yoga practice, say, “When thy mind, that may be wavering in the contradictions of many scriptures, shall rest unshaken in divine contemplation, then the goal of Yoga is thine.” In other words, if we can allow our thoughts to fall into God, we will know our connection to our higher self.
Meditative Thought: God wants to have a private encounter with your soul on a daily basis. It is the practice of meditation that helps you to embrace your greatness. When we choose the path of stillness we will know the power that sustains us.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, remember to be still and know that God is God. It is the stillness that brings a deeper awareness of our unity with the Holy Spirit. Take the time to sit in the secret garden of your consciousness.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I remember to be still and know that God is everything. And so it is. Amen
