About Karma Yoga….
did I ever tell you story? Years ago I was ready for a complete reset of life. So I asked for it and got it. I went to volunteer in a spiritual community and felt so wise and enlightened to be able to leave everything I created and achieved behind. Don’t remember what I actually expected but not that I would be doing mountains of laundry of strangers and weeding a abandoned back yard in the rain.
Day 1 diggin weeds. Boring.
Day 2 digging weeds. Hated it, had blisters on my hand.
Day 3, 4, 5 digging weeds because I had to.
Day 6 digging weeds. No digging weeds. The master would tell me the day after a guy from the village would come with his tractor.
I raised an eyebrow and understood. Thank you I said while looking at the clouds and I moved on to the kitchen, my new *job* in the community. I learned to cook for large groups, learned how to estimate and calculate amounts.`Might cultivate this skill for later, who knows` my subconscious told my ego, and all agreed to stay open and receptive.
Karma Yoga – selfless practice and the accepting of what comes. No judging or questioning. Following my Dharma is giving me a certain sensation of PEACE.
And here I am. With this project. Having people helping me, just because they want. At the end all makes sense. Karma yoga is my practice, will stick with this one!
