I am not my own
Living between two places has become difficult and frustrating especially when you are ripping and running up and down the highway every other day! This is a part of why I have been lacking on my blogging! I am finding peace within the storm though!
One of the things that I am particularly excited about in our move is the yoga class that I am joining! I have been practicing my own yoga for a couple of year's now, but I am ready to get with a professional who can show me the ropes and let me know what I am doing right and wrong on a consistent basis. It also will be an outlet for me to have all my own. I plan to start my classes when we move and so I have been reading up on some basics of yoga (roots, purpose, how to choose a class, etc.).
The following is a quote that I read from my book yesterday and I was truly blessed by it:
"The body and mind which we are so identified
is not all that we are; within us there is a
source of life that animates us."
I immediately thought of the holy spirit and it was a reminder that through all that I am faced with, the pressures of life, the joys and the disappointments, I AM NOT MY OWN. There is a power that lives within in me that allows me to wake up every morning, that gives me the ability to breathe, and is ultimately in control. I AM NOT MY OWN. I know that this is God and through his power alone, I am who I am.
The beauty of yoga is that it does not have to be a religious practice. People from all different religions are practicioners of yoga. I am truly thankful that I can take the concepts and apply them to my faith. God is awesome and through his holy spirit, there is a divine peace that surpasses all understanding. I look forward to tapping into that inner peace and truly learn how to let go and let God.
