When Light Decides



I have learned a lot about myself living out here in the middle of nowhere; like how good I am at worrying. I'll worry about one thing a lot, and as soon as I don't seem to have cause to worry about it anymore, I'll pick up another thing to worry about.

One thing I've learned is that I can't think myself out of worrying. I have to do something in order to stop worrying, like exercise or hang out with a friend. Today, I decided to start a sadhana. Sadhana is defined as a "means of accomplishing something," it's a spiritual practice you commit to for a certain number of days to help you transcend your ego. According to Kundalini Yoga, doing a sadhana for 40 days "changes a habit," and that's exactly what I mean to do. I want change my negative habit of worrying and I want to practice more faith.

I got out my little planner and wrote down all the days that I would be doing my sadhana. Turns out the last day of my sadhana will be the Winter Solstice, when light decides to change its habit too. I thought that was pretty cool, actually, to be honest, I'm totally yoga-dorking-out over it.
