I taught a yoga class today revolving around one of my favorite themes: trust, surrender, the Niyama of Isvara Pranidhana--surrendering to something greater than ourselves, the universe, God, for some.
This theme of surrender and trust has been my backbone for the past many weeks. I don't live my life with too much of a plan, but I know when the cosmos, the world, something higher is pulling or pushing me to rearrange my furniture. The challenge I have been finding myself in...is not quite seeing where I am being moved, how, why, and with what purpose.
Then the universe whispers, "Everything is working out in your favor. Trust me."
And she is always right...
Tripping Over Joy
What is the difference
Between your experience of existence
And that of a saint?
The Saint Knows
That the spiritual path
Is a sublime chess game with God
And that the Beloved
Has just made such a Fantastic Move
That the Saint is now continually
Tripping over Joy
And bursting out in Laughter
And saying "I surrender!"
Whereas, my dear,
I am afraid you still think
You have a thousand serious moves
