Good Morning Yogis! We are continuing on with weaving practice of each of the Yamas into our day. Last time we practiced the second of the Yamas, Satya/Truthfulness with a kind truth, but today we will examine and practice from a different angle.
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to actively exercise Satya/truthfulness with ourselves today. Need ideas? It can be big or small. This usually means examining mindsets, practices, or people in our life that may not be serving us. For example, maybe you are like me and should really examine eating less candy and more veggies. Or maybe you have other unhealthy practices like smoking, or a medical issue you have been putting off getting examined. Perhaps you have “friends” who cut you down to bring themselves up or consistently take but never offer support. We usually know deep down what truths we need to accept… perhaps meditate to allow these thoughts to come up. Accepting difficult truths is a big step, and do not push yourself to do anything until you are ready. But, if you decide you are up for it, plan a course of action to resolve what you had been avoiding.
Please comment and share how you decided to practice Satya with yourself today. This can be difficult, but honestly is always the best policy. Always remember, be kind!
