I am lucky to have friends who are full on yogis and spiritual teachers. Last night at their School of Cosmic Consciousness workshop, I learned about the word "sadhana"—or daily spiritual practice. For some, this is getting up at the crack of dawn, meditating, running, praying. For me, it's writing. My wise friend described her "sadhana" of daily meditation as both her "life jacket" and her "anchor." Sometimes the benefit is clear, but sometimes it feels like a burden, even when it offers us a kind of safety. Still we commit, and trust our own experience. If you are resisting discovering or implementing your own sadhana, try the steps from this great article I discovered, called "How To Take Action When You Just Don't Wanna."
(And thank you again, wise and wonderful Hardev Kaur and Gurucharan for an inspiring evening!)
