Friday Affirmation and Body Connection – Be Still and Know

Friday Affirmation and Body Connection – Be Still and Know 150 150 Skip Jennings

We started our week with meditation focusing around the theme of Being Still and Knowing God’s voice.  For this week’s Affirmation find a place, settle your mind and just for this moment…just for this breath, remember to be still and know that God is everything. And so it is. Amen

The asana position, also known as the stillness, requires us to stop and connect with the body and/or something greater. During yoga practice, it is the stillness that invites us to know our divine self. The physical practice of yoga is a metaphorical battle with the big self and the ego. Our soul’s desire is to know serenity and peace, to release the chaotic activity of the mental mind. The Bhagavad Gita, sacred scriptures for the yoga practice, say, “When thy mind, that may be wavering in the contradictions of many scriptures, shall rest unshaken in divine contemplation, then the goal of Yoga is thine.” In other words, if we can allow our thoughts to fall into God, we will know our connection to our higher self.

Have a blessed weekend.
