I almost skipped today's Wishcasting as I thought I pretty much covered the subject of leaping here. But as I walked Moose in the golden glow of early morning, new forms of leaping tumbled through my brain.
How to answer: What leap do I wish to take?
I wish to leap into my dreams
To leap into flight
Into my truth
Into my calling &
I wish to leap over
notions of lack
rocks of self judgment
the mud puddle of comparison
the quagmire of inertia
But really, when all is said and done, I wish to leap into contentment for all that is available to me right now, as I am, as life presents itself to me.
Santosha or contentment is one of the foundational principles in the Yoga Sutras. To understand contentment, the opposite state or discontentment is often considered. Attachment and desire drive discontentment. Feeling a lack, believing what is out there will make me happy/better/more fulfilled only deepens my sense of discontent. To be free from grasping, desire, a sense of incompleteness is to experience Santosha and a happiness that cannot be effected by outside conditions.
Santosha, or the practice of content-ment, is the ability to feel satisfied within the container of one's immediate experience. (Donna Farhi)
When at peace and content with oneself and others (Santosha), supreme joy is celebrated. (Nischala Joy Devi)
Supreme joy ... yeah, I wish to leap into that.
(you could say I also leapt into a new challenge - Thank you Lisa! - of 21 days of yoga practice and writing. I am ready to commit ... or be committed!)
