The nail polish worn at my dear friends wedding a week ago is starting to fade - as is the euphoria of my barefoot birthday party from a month ago and the force of the bad cold I entertained for the past two weeks. It got me thinking of how we need time for recovery from both the difficult, challenging experiences, stresses and traumas of life as well as the wonderful, memorable, glorious experiences. Recovery. Even if you have a job you love, like I am fortunate to have, recovery is needed after any intense period of work.
Just as we cannot continuously move our bodies without time for recovery, in Spiritual Sadhana, after practice we need recovery time to absorb our new dimensions - before we can expand to the next.
Recovery. When a relationship ends, when we finish a big project that we have been absorbed in, when we have moved beyond our borders in any way, we find the value of and need for recovery.
We cannot successfully spend a whole day awake without some sleep to recover from it.
The yogic practices themselves are a path of Recovery,
Recovering our Self.
Recovering our True Nature.
Daily does it!
If you wish to recover some practice inspiration then I invite you dearly to our weekly classes, monthly events and term highlights as we move towards winter, the Northern Nature's own time of recovery.
