Now Is The Time, Now Is Sacred

by | Feb 12, 2017

 It is hard to know what to write these days. It is difficult to find meaning in what feels like madness.

As we are bombarded with distraction and uncertainty, it feels natural to want to connect with our inner stillness. A yoga practice can help guide and give purpose to this turning inward – in some ways, a retreat from the external world.

 
At the end of a yoga asana practice, we are offered the sacred opportunity to withdraw our senses from the external environment during savasana.

 

To close our eyes.

To let go of the sounds and stimuli which surround us.

To – as completely as possible – surrender our weight into the support of the Earth.

To rest in the seat of our deepest knowing.

 

At times, this journey can feel unsettling. Letting go of the tangible world and trusting the intangible is a difficult task. If there was ever a time to do it, though – now is the time.

 

Now Is The Time

by Hafiz

Now is the time to know

That all you do is sacred.

Now, why not consider

A lasting truce with yourself and God.

Now is the time to understand

That all your ideas of right and wrong

Were just a child’s training wheels

To be laid aside

When you can finally live

With veracity

And love.

Hafiz is a divine envoy

Whom the Beloved

Has written a holy message upon.

My dear, please tell me,

Why do you still

Throw sticks at your heart

And God?

What is it in that sweet voice inside

That incites you to fear?

Now is the time for the world to know

That every thought and action is sacred.

This is the time

For you to deeply compute the impossibility

That there is anything but Grace.

Now is the season to know

That everything you do

Is sacred.

 

When we move through each day with intention, practice mindful enjoyment of life’s simple and decadent pleasures, speak and act with care — we honor ourselves, each other, and the bounty of the Earth.

 
Recognize that everything you do is sacred and the world will transform from the inside out.
