I am taking a moment here to acknowledge the great people in my life, and one of them who brought this saying to my attention. Last night I made my ultimate wish, to deepen my practice. I chose to do so for the benefits it has brought to me so far and because I want to continue along this Path, for myself, for others.
I have been practicing yoga for several years now and have started to study the scriptures and practice daily in the last two years. Along with meditation, I have found that it has positively changed my life and my relationship with others. I am continuously learning about myself, my behaviors, my thought patterns, and it has allowed for a better understanding of what is truly important in Life while slowly getting rid of what hinders my growth.
To deepen my practice. Although I will continue the physical practice of yoga that heals my body and the mental practice of conscious awareness that guides my actions and my thoughts, there is more. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras presents this as the Eightfold Path which some describe as the ethical blueprint for living a moral life and incorporating the science of yoga into your life.
I believe that it is now my time to delve deeper into this Path, my practice, and to fully become a practitioner. I am grateful for all of those who have been there. I am especially thinking of you and how grateful I am for your support, for your laugh, but most of all, for being here patiently with me. You are one of my greatest Teachers and I love you.
There is no reason nor sense in looking back, the seed has been planted. I am moving forward in a world of infinite possibilities. Sat Naam and Namaste.
