Step Into the Light of Your Integrity

Satya — the second Yama of the Yoga Sutras — asks for truth + integrity while remaining rooted in love + compassion. The heart of yoga is unity amongst ourselves and all living things. When we are not truthful, we create a palpable separation from the self + others — whereas when we express ourselves in alignment with truth, we feel an easeful connection to the universal flow — and everyone around us feels it too. Rooted in ourselves — our feelings, thoughts, words, and actions soften + become more heart-centered. We express inwardly + outwardly with graceful compassion — all the while connected to + intuitively guided by the liberating flow. In standing in the light of integrity, we encourage others to do so as well. The individual expression…

Sreyan svadharmo vigunah paradharmat svanusthitat; Svadharme nidhanam sreyah paradharmo bhayavahah — (Chapter 3. Verse 35) The Sanskrit word “dharma” has joined “yoga” and “karma” in common English usage. Dharma is often taken to mean “duty.” However, it is a whole lot more than this. The Sanskrit word Dharma comes from the root “dhri” which means to uplift or uphold. Dharma literally refers to “that which upholds righteousness.” A sense of righteousness, of purpose and inspiration is extremely significant on the spiritual path. Dharma can mean “law of the universe,” and/or one’s own…
