Presence and stillness are two of the most important gifts our yoga and meditation practice offers us. When we slow down and become quiet, we begin to notice the miraculous way the breath moves, the heart beats, the senses connect us to the outside world, the mind creates coherence from the multiplicity of sensory impressions we take in. We begin to sense the miracle of creation and recognize that we are part of that miracle. Gradually, we learn to carry that awareness out into the world. Sadhana (spiritual practice) prepares the mind to see God in everything, every moment of our lives.
How often are you aware of the miracles around you? What keeps you from awareness? What helps you stay aware? Come explore with us at this week's Sunday sadhana, April 12, 4 p.m., Hill House, Ruscombe Community Health Center.
