new year's resolution, Sankalpa, yoga / Sunday, December 30th, 2012

2013. Gah, can you believe it? I can’t even begin to tell you where this year has gone. Seems like yesterday I was hugely pregnant and waiting for Q to arrive. I don’t think I made the obligatory list for New Year’s and if did it is long gone.

Do I make a list for 2013? I like the idea of a few things to accomplish, a few goals to work towards. I also like to have a daily Sankalpa. This is a yogic term, a simple and specific intention. A spiritual resolve if you like. You keep it secret and to yourself. You focus on I am not I want as how you say your Sankalpa is very important. You believe what you say 🙂 I will also try having a theme for my year, a word that I will try to embody every day. Well see how that goes 😀

My list won’t be long; it will be well thought out and intentional. I will post it in a few days. What is your intention going to be?

“You are what your deep driving desire is,
As is your desire so is your intention.
As is your intention so is your will.
As is your will so is your deed.
As is your deed so is your destiny.”
~ Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
