Satya – Truth

I’m at the yoga conference in Seattle this weekend and I’ve already been touched deeply by what I’ve learned here.

Statya is the Yama I am working on as I study the 8 limbs. This morning I learned a different meaning.

What it means to me: Stop listening to the lies I tell myself. I need to retrain my brain to ask, “Is that true, is that real” any lie you tell yourself, is not true and not real. 

What it means to my practice: let go of Ego. There is no need to worry what is going on off my mat. The only things that are real and true are happening outside my head and I am missing it. 

How can I apply this to my life more: as many thoughts I can catch, I will ask myself if it’s true. If it is real, and if it’s a story or a lie I’ve told myself and held onto, I’m going to let it go. Put it behind me and speak truth.
