Anchored in Unchanging Truth

Paula Whang-Ramos

"Be anchored in your innate wholeness.

That anchoring allows us to remain centered when powerful waves of change are moving through our life."
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, Jewel of Abundance, pg. 182-183

When our lives are going as planned, we can get carried away in the joyful energy of the mind's desires having been met in our new home or car or job. When we are faced with life challenges, we can get carried away in the worry and stress of the new health diagnosis or unexpected financial expense or change in relationship. In either case, we can increase our ultimate suffering by redirecting our vital force towards these changing circumstances and our reactions to them, as we step away from our daily meditation and spiritual practices.

As we mature in Yoga, our attachment to our happy and fear-based reactions serves as a call to unplug from these emotional states of mind. Instead, we redirect our attention and awareness within and into our spiritual practices so we can anchor our true joy, clarity, courage and peace in the Wholeness that remains Unchanged in the presence of all life circumstances. Because the truth is that most of us want more than temporary happiness or a temporary reprieve from fear and suffering. Most of us want to live anchored in the Source of happiness, fulfillment, courage and peace that is stronger and more eternal than any building or relationship or changing physical condition. And we can all have it - when we live the spiritual practices that keep us anchored within the truth of what we are. Will you take a few minutes to stop, sit in silence, and anchor yourself in your Self right now?
