DAILY TRANSFORMATIONAL NUGGETS FOR THE BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT: Surrendering – Day 22 “Humility”
The Body Connection: One of the things that we strive for is balance, physically, mentally, and spiritually. During our journey toward a more fit life, balance or the lack of balance can bring us to a place of humility. Have you ever been in a yoga class and a very challenging yoga pose has brought you to your knees? And those squats and lunges during your strength-training sessions can challenge you beyond belief. Even the simple act of standing on one foot with your eyes closed will show you the need to work on your balance. The secret to achieving balance is to become the balance, and that is an inside job. When working on your physical practice, remind yourself that balance comes from a place of center within. Not matter what form of balance you are striving for; it comes from inside of you. Balance is a feeling that can only be achieved in the practice of stillness. True balance is achieved when we humble ourselves to the practice of mindfulness. Stay teachable as you awaken to the balance that is within you.
Meditative Thought: Humility is fully surrendering to God, allowing us to be teachable to the lesson that we have said yes to. Because we are the likeness, and an idea in the mind of God, we are not limited to the growth we can experience. The lesson today is humility to feel balanced. Every lesson leads us to a deeper awareness for God within, which is always in order and balanced.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, remain teachable; humble yourself to the divine lessons of life. Mindfully ask the question, “What am I to learn from this situation?” or “What is seeking to emerge from this challenge?” When the answers come, write in down so you don’t forget. During your time of the physical, mental, our spiritual practices, explore, contemplate and cultivate these expansive questions. Keep a record of all you divine downloads; this record of enlighten can be used in moments of forgetfulness.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I say yes to the expansion of my soul. I am humble and teachable and ready to learn. And so it is. Amen
