We are diving into the last section of the Yama, Satya (Truthfulness), this week. As with all the pages before in this chapter, Deborah Adele challenges us again to be brutally honest (in the most loving way) with ourselves. We are being asked to recognize that the natural order of life has stages, phases, and periods in which our truth MUST change in order to still be our truth! We also get to explore the weight and power truth has and to be reminded of how this jewel goes hand in hand with Ahimsa (nonviolence) to help it remain a tool for good.
"Week Four: This week, look at ideas and beliefs that once served you and now have become archaic. You may unknowingly be holding on to things that you no longer need. Honor these beliefs because, like a vehicle, they brought you to your current place on your journey. As you let go of what no longer serves you, pay attention to where denial shows up and celebrate your movement toward a clearer, more authentic you! Watch how this exercise frees up your energy for the further emergence of your authentic realness."
