Happy December 27, 2022 – Aparigraha (Non-attachment)
Good Morning Yogis! We just completed our special Holiday week of Brahmacharya. Today we will practice the last of the Yamas – Aparigraha / non-attachment.
Holiday Yamas Practice Schedule
We are on our twentieth day of Holiday Yamas Practices! We finished counting down the first 5 Yamas with 5 days of Ahimsa (non-harming), 4 days of Satya (truthfulness), 3 days of Asteya (non-stealing), and a full week of Brahmacharya for the week of Christmas in the United States.. a time that I enjoyed the focus on moderation! We are rounding out the last of the 5 Yamas today with Aparigraha. We will quickly wrap up the remaining 7 Limbs of Yoga before we restart the 8 Limbs of Yoga for our January Challenge.
Today’s Positive Practice suggestion
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to practice Aparigraha / non-grasping with our actions. Today we will take action without making expectations of a particular outcome. Need some ideas? Sometimes we do nice things for others, hoping for a particular result and we then end up disappointed if the other person does not react how we planned. Try today to not hold expectations for another person’s behavior. Or perhaps set aside a few hours to relax, or enjoy time with loved ones, or just go for a drive without a pre-set agenda, and see where life takes you!
Today’s quote is from the Bhagavad Gita, check out the Daily Yogi App for quick access to the Gita!
