The Art of Taking Right Action: Cultivating Spontaneous Right Action through Yoga
Hey there! Today, I want to talk to you about the art of taking right action.
What’s that got to do with Yoga. 🙄 A lot!
To go over a point I will continue to bang on about. Yoga is not physical postures!
For a moment, please allow your mind to get beyond form! Postures are where practice starts and serve only to steady the body for the purpose of mastering our minds and then our energy.
Simply put – we use posture to get our ‘head in the game’ and only then can we skilfully direct the full force of our innate create energy into what we want, and NOT WHAT WE DON’T WANT! Which you can call spontaneous right action!
Now I hear you! And see you! Throwing your arms up in the air in despair. You don’t know what you want! Right?
Not surprising really if you consider how disconnected you might be from who you really are!
We get it. Life, obligations, habit all get in the way. That’s ok. That’s what Yoga practice is for. To get you out of your own way, to get you back to your Self – true Self.
Don’t Chase Perfect Poses, Chase Your Freedom
Through traditional practices, wisdom and teachings you get better at sensing, intuiting and feeling into your ‘true’ self, which is linked to your most soul aligned values and purpose.
Then you start to follow that like your own personal GPS. With practice, getting less side-tracked by anything but that!
This is the formula for your happiness, fulfilment, and freedom.
Yeah – getting upside down, or bending over backwards can give you a moment of achievement and fulfilment – but what happens when your body can’t get you there? Or what if you don’t have a body that even can – what then? Are you not enough? Is union with consciousness and all creativity not possible for you? Are you thrown out of yoga school? Good grief!
Can you see how your foundation for happiness just collapsed! Don’t rely on form! Don’t chase a perfect pose – chase your FREEDOM!
Seriously – some folks in the yoga industry need to take a good look at what they are putting out there because it’s quite frankly unhelpful to any new folks watching.
And if I’m completely in my truth – damaging to the future of this amazing tradition.
But that’s just an obstacle. Once we get over that and understand what Yoga really is, we can work with solutions and get some real results from our practice.
So, What is Spontanous Right Action?
It’s when you just know what to do in any given moment. It’s like your intuition is on point, and you’re making decisions from a place of clarity and authenticity.
Let me give you an example. Have you ever had a bad feeling about a situation or a person, but you couldn’t quite put your finger on why? Maybe you got a bad stomach or a headache or just a general feeling of unease. That’s your intuition trying to tell you something. And when you cultivate Spontaneous Right Action, you learn to trust that feeling and act accordingly.
I’ll give you another example. Let’s say you’re at work, and your boss asks you to do something that goes against your values or your sense of right and wrong. You could ignore that feeling and do what your boss says, or you could trust your intuition and have a conversation with them about why you’re not comfortable with that task. It takes courage and confidence to take that kind of action, but when you do, you’re living in alignment with your true self.
And the best part? When you start cultivating Spontaneous Right Action, you start to see positive changes in your life. You start making decisions that align with your values and goals, and you start feeling more confident and empowered.
So, my friend, this is why I trust in Yoga as a lifelong practice that delivers you right where you need to be in any moment.
Remember, life is not a rehearsal, it is meant to be lived to the fullest, with a smile on your face and a skip in your step. If you’re living in your truth, soul driven – it becomes a win, win for you and all those connected to you. So, let’s get out there and start taking some Spontaneous Right Action!
Here are three ways Yoga practice gets you there.
It cultivates awareness: When we practice yoga, we become more aware of our bodies, our breath, and our thoughts. We learn to observe ourselves without judgment, which helps us develop a deeper understanding of who we are and what we need. This awareness is essential for cultivating Spontaneous Right Action because it helps us recognise when we’re out of alignment with our true selves.
It builds intuition: As we become more aware of ourselves, we also start to tune into our intuition. Our intuition is our inner wisdom, our gut feeling, our Spontaneous Right Action. Yoga helps us tap into that inner voice and trust it. We learn to distinguish between our intuition and our fears, doubts, and worries, which is key to making confident decisions.
It promotes mindfulness: Yoga is a mindfulness practice. When we practice yoga, we’re fully present in the moment, focusing on our breath and our body. This mindfulness carries over into our daily lives, helping us stay present and attentive to what’s happening around us. It’s easier to take Spontaneous Right Action when we’re fully engaged in the present moment.
And the best part? These three benefits of yoga – awareness, intuition, and mindfulness – are not just limited to the yoga mat. They’re skills that we can apply to every aspect of our lives, from our relationships to our careers to our personal growth.
Yoga is seriously the best, most affordable self-development and success tool your time and money can buy! Because it works!
