"The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become." Charles Du Bos
At any moment! Can you imagine what that must feel like? That level of trust and humility. I've been contemplating this quote a lot lately. I wonder how many opportunities I've missed to live to my potential because of my inability to surrender my ego. Lately my ego feels so strong. I meditate, I practice, I pray and yet this incessant voice of fear and unworthiness dominate my consciousness.
I want to be that person who can sacrifice her ego at any moment. I want to become the person I dream about being, do the work that I'm here to do and help to create a more beautiful, just and loving world. I know yoga is in my life to teach me how. I hope I'm open to receiving the wisdom in my heart amid the current raging voice of ignorance. I'll keep practicing, I guess...
Of course I will. What other real option is there?
