“You are only entitled to the action, never to its fruits. Do not let the fruits of action be your motive, but do not attach yourself to non-action.” . . Lord Krishna is known as many things - hero, leader, embodiment of love, joy, destroyer of all pain and sin. I learned of Krishna when reading the Gita during my 200 hour YTT. Although when I first read the story of Arjuna and the war - I struggled deeply (still do 🙊). There are so many layers and lessons within the conversation between Arjuna and Krishna. Krishna shares such wisdom about duty, motive, the mind and more. I had a hard time picking just one quote from this but I feel today, I need to focus on the journey and not the result. . . If what I am doing is for the reward, the money, the praise, the ego, the way I will look… I am focusing on the fruits of my actions. If I am focusing on doing my best, doing it with love and compassion, being in the moment, giving my all… I am focusing on my actions only. I must remove the expectation from the deed. I must move in this world with love, but never for any other reason than love fills my heart with joy. It’s a huge ask for me but it’s wonderful goal and a wonderful way to align my motives and my feet. . . Thank you for sharing in this challenge with me!

Lord Vishnu is known as The Preserver, the guardian of humans and the one who keeps the order of things. He has four limbs, two are in his back and represent his presence in the spiritual world. Vishnu takes on many forms, one of which is the Buddha. . . Vishnu is the one who keeps the harmony of the Earth. I love the idea that he has to keep himself both in the spiritual world and in the Earthly one to do so. It’s like yoga - if I want it to bring about change in my soul, it has to be more than just the asana. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I started my practice simply as a form of exercise. But when I started focusing on my breath, something shifted. I began to crave growth, and I began to explore more than just the posture. Some of my favorite humans on here talk about the difference between “real yoga” and “instagram yoga” - and they’re right! When I keep my yoga both in the spiritual and in the earthly world - I am able to really experience all of the gifts (not just the flexibility - but that doesn’t mean I am not dreaming of those splits!!). . . Today, in honoring Lord Vishnu, see how you can relocate some of yourself into something bigger than you - hold the door, pick up a piece of trash, meditate, compliment a stranger - and experience how the order of things can align. . . .

The sage Marichi's name translates to a ray of light. He is revered as one of the most powerful and wise gods. His grandson is who we dedicate our sun salutations to. As I hunted for more information on what Marichi is known for - what mostly came back is the story of the curse he placed on his wife. She was tending to him when her father in law arrived, afraid to be disrespectful, she switched her attention to him instead. In anger, Marichi cursed her and turned her into stone. . . Obviously, I am not a huge fan of this tale. I realize that many tales of the past treat women… less than savory. I can’t simply accept that today and write this story without saying how completely frustrating it is being a woman. . . If I say how I feel now, will I be called an angry woman? Will I be told it’s just a myth from the past, get over it? Will I be considered petty because I am not considering the time in which these were written? Am I wrong to get upset - should I simply let these tales be stories of the past and assume they have no bearing on today and the future? I don’t know. But I will say, I actually do love this pose and all it’s variations 😂😂. (Am I saying then that it’s okay?🙊 Boy, so many questions!). . . Day Five // Sage Marichi . .

I am not going to lie, when I initially read the tale of Sita, it kind of made my skin crawl. Let me explain, a lot of her stories were about how she is the ideal woman, daughter, wife. There were many detailed descriptions of how she met her husband, and how he passed certain strength tests to win her hand in marriage. In fact, when we were creating this challenge we even classified her as Sita, Rama’s wife! . . But I reread the stories and decided to look at this another way. Being a woman is beautiful. Being nurturing and caring is a gift. However, I don’t love how these qualities are automatically assigned to me simply because of my gender. I tend to get a little defensive when I hear about “an ideal wife” - as I presume it has lots of stereotypes of giving selflessly and putting myself second. . . But that is actually not what I read, that was my interpretation. How I read them is more about me and my own baggage and frustrations. I tend to bristle at these kinds of characterizations. But that may be the lesson for me in this tale. To look deeper at what bothers me, to learn from it, and perhaps let some of my anger around it go (or do something proactive about it rather than just sit and complain 🤷). . . Day Four // Sita . .

Durga is the Warrior Goddess, the Mother Protector of all. She combats evil and demonic forces that threaten the peace and the good. I feel as though yoga is my mother protector. Just like Durga, yoga has many limbs, all of which combine to guide and heal me. Through yoga, my entire life has changed. My husband was really sick when I started practicing regularly, and through the asana, community, meditation, and love - I grew to accept our situation exactly as it was. Of course, once I accepted it, everything changed for the better. Yoga has not removed my anger or frustrations, but instead has taught me to be more compassionate (or at the very least just not act out and hurt people 🤷). . . Durga carries a variety of weaponry, she is ready for any battle at any time. With yoga, I have access to so many tools for healing and growth. Whenever I encounter conflict or fear - I can choose any of my weapons to grow and learn. I can meditate, I can move, I can breathe, I can be of service, I can be still. With yoga, I am an imperfect goddess of strength. . . Day Three // Durga, The Warrior Goddess . .

I am noticing a lot of fear come up lately. The camper renovations are just about done which means we're going to start traveling again next week. Though I should be on the edge of my seat in excitement, I honestly just have a huge fear baby living in my belly. . . The renovations were not just cosmetic. We added a composting toilet and a few other things to make off grid camping (read: FREE) more possible. And off grid camping means more spontaneity and less certainty to where we sleep each night. Guys, I am a TYPE A CONTROL FREAK PLANNER and we can't make reservations for free campsites!!! This makes my skin crawl all over (even though I was very much in favor of this decision). . . Ultimately, I'm scared. I feel like I have to have more trust in the universe, be okay with adventure (and misadventure) and just practice going with the flow. Ugh. That sounds awful (and amazing). Anyway, I'm just over here biting my nails until take off. . . ✨leggings @myinnerfire . .

Shiva is the destroyer - so at first I assumed that he must be a feared and terrible god. But instead, the belief is he destroys in order to create. Shiva is a protective and and transformative god. With the surprising power of dance - Shiva moves to dispel ignorance and relieve suffering from his followers. He calmed the Ganges River simply by standing below it and allowing the river to calm by flowing through his hair. . . I was surprised how these tales unfolded as I always assumed that a god of destruction could only be a punishing one. I found myself challenging my negative idea of destruction and reflecting on the healing power of dance (since every time I wiggle around - I am always smiling). Though there are countless stories, good and bad, about Shiva - I found myself gravitating towards these ones. . . Day Two // Lord Shiva . .

To what lengths am I willing to go to help another? Hanuman stretched his legs forward and backward to rescue the captive Sita. I actually love helping others. Volunteering, service, listening and giving always pay such huge rewards in internal contentment. Although I am much better at bigger gestures, in general, I try to give something small everyday - smiles, holding the door, practicing earth loving habits, connecting with my friends. . . Even though I love to give, it's not always easy to do. Whether it is time, money or energy - sometimes fear cuts in and makes me feel like there isn't enough. But I've noticed that when I act from scarcity, I usually end up with less - regardless of what I started with. So tomorrow, in honoring the story of Hanuman going to long lengths for Sita, I consider how I can let go of the fear of not enough and give with kindness and without expectation. . .

My maiden name is Park and those cruel bullies of my youth nicknamed me Water Park. Why? Because of how bad my armpits sweat. This was a huge point of fear and frustration for a lot of my life. Never wear white, always carry an extra sweater (no matter how hot - at all costs cover the pit stains). I finally got extreme prescription strength deodorant, and it eventually started to get better. Which brings me to today, where, despite all my teenager protests, I stopped wearing deodorant. . . See, I have this irrational fear that deodorant will give me breast cancer. I know that is not how it works, but for some reason it doesn't matter. I can't use it anymore. Since "pitting out" was a serious trauma for several years, this seemed like an absolute terrible idea at first. But I had developed a lot of theories (thanks internet!) about how my armpits need to detox and my pores need to breathe, and so how could I deny freedom for some of my body? (I have no idea how true that is either, but hey 🤷). . . Once I stopped, I had to do a lot of difficult self loving. I didn't smell good, but it was also still me. I didn't love it, but I felt like I needed to embrace it a little more. (Sure, it helped being in the middle of the desert with all my work being online). . . After about two months without deodorant, my body odor stopped being so offensive. (Seriously!!) No, I did not just get used to - I really don't smell bad anymore! Sure, I (we, sorry hubs!) had to endure a couple stinky months but now it's really not bad. (Seriously!!) . There are definitely days now where I want to use deodorant, but I'm looking into some natural options that might work. Overall, I am proud that I learned to love a really not-so-lovely part of myself and mean it. I exercised another choice. Maybe I'll change my mind, maybe I won't. But whatever I do, it's not out of fear of what others will think. And for that, I'm proud. . . . .

Living in a tiny home means having a tiny wardrobe. And having a tiny wardrobe means very few options. I mean, don't get me wrong, even when I had a walk in closet I pretty much wore the same outfits on repeat. Now I just have a few tops, a couple of leggings, no hanging clothes and only one pair of jeans. I don't really miss having a ton of options. I have found that now it takes only a second to get dressed - plus everything I own is a favorite. . .

What I do matters. What I say matters. What I put out into this universe - both energetically and physically - matters. I matter. I used to think I was too small, just one person, my actions had too little impact. But today I know that is just an excuse - a way out, a reason for me to be lazy, to take an easier path. . I voted today. I made laundry detergent. I connected with a friend. I practiced something I hate (splits 😠). I hugged my husband. I laughed. I made food. I got frustrated. I got scared about money. I watched Grey's Anatomy. . I put out love, honesty, rest, and change. My actions matter. What I do matters. You matter. Your actions matter. . . . . .

D R I S H T I . I remember the moment when I realized where I looked effected the stability and alignment of the asana. Finding a soft focus allowed me to hold balancing postures, release my neck, and deepen the pose. . . I am starting to realize that drishti, what I focus on, can make a real difference in my life off the mat too. What has my attention? Is it positive or negative? Because whatever it is, will be what grounds me, provides me with support and helps me stabilize. . In truth, a lot of times I gravitate to the negative. I have a tendency to worry first and so that becomes my root. Fear grounds me, makes me feel normal (but not okay). . . I'm ready to shift my focus. To look at the good, to not wait for the other shoe to drop. To softly focus on what I'm grateful for, all the abundance I have, and to notice where my feet currently are and finding happiness in this moment, not waiting or worrying about the next. . . . .

I am Jewish but I don't usually tell people. Why? Because of all the small types of hate I have experienced. . . When I have told people I am Jewish I've been told, "Ew. I'd never want to be Jewish because they have the worst holidays." Almost all claim that I don't look Jewish. Lots are perplexed by my lack of money. Many have told me I should celebrate Christmas because I'm American. Some of my husband's family were appalled at our wedding because they didn't realize I was "that Jewish". . . When people don't know I'm Jewish I get to hear awful, hateful jokes about Jews. Or a true discussion on how horrible that person is - and did you know they're also a JEW? I have endured lengthy discussions on the ruin of this country because we have to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. . This is not the worst kind of antisemitism. The worst kind is what happened yesterday in Pittsburgh. But I believe the big kinds of hate grow from the small injustices that we say are okay because of their size. I am guilty of not standing up for myself in these cases, because the small hate feels too little to be worth fighting. But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I need to stand up for treating all people well whenever small hurts are tossed. Or maybe not. I just don't know. . . .
