I had to share this.
Like a lot of people, money continues to be a struggle for me. It was difficult for me to write the newsletter this month about finances. As a yoga teacher, I try to incorporate the ideas, aka practice what I preach. The art of allowing for space for abundance in my life. The idea that the universe provides for me.
I'm teaching at another studio in Eastlake this morning and one of the students walks up to me and tells me that she's practicing spontaneous tithing, and hands me a check. She feels spiritually blessed and wanted to pass it along.
My heart just fills. It's not about the money. It's about the practicing of faith. Faith that my body will feel better after a practice. Faith that in spite of the many difficulties that may arise, that life will continue, not always as it was but in a new form. The universe responds in ways that I can't begin to fathom. So I will continue to allow it to do it's job and not question in what form it comes.
This month, I'm practicing gratitude. Gratitude for what I have, not what I don't. Gratitude for my life in this moment, not what I want it to be. Gratitude grows, this I know. Life brings me gifts all the time, if I open my eyes wide enough to see.
Again, I Thank you for spiritually (and literally) feeding me.
