Truth

"When you're firmly established in the practice of Truth, your words become so potent that whatever you say comes to realization." --BKS Iyengar

Yoga Sutra 2.38
Satya or Truth is about being your authentic self and not wearing different masks for different people or circumstances. (We all know people like that, don't we? Agh, I'm guilty at times-- a lot, if I'm honest.) Nothing I enjoy more than being with a friend who is genuine: the same with me, and everyone they meet.

When I read Iyengar's interpretation of Truth, it struck me that Truth goes much deeper- into our being- beyond our mind. "Truth should be integrated on a cellular level." If we say something and part of our being holds back then "success is not assured". If the Truth is said with whole-heartedness with "not one cell dissembling, then we create the reality we desire."

I've set my intention to follow my heart over and over and because of fear (of hurting those I love), I've recoiled. For something to become Truth, I need to surrender to it fully. If I hold back in any way, it won't. But when I live in Truth, my intention will bloom to life.
Bloom to Life
