I am not my mind. I am not my body. I get it. I really do. But wait! If I’m not my mind or my body — who’s this person in the mirror? With Grace, answers to such questions flow in, almost as soon as I ask. I hear Gurudevi’s voice: “This person is an expression of the Self, like a ripple of water. So what kind of expression is that going to be? You get to choose.”
I made a list. One of the first things I wrote was “generous.” I stopped. I actually am generous, I realized. Wow, I am generous! That is not something I could have said before coming to Svaroopa® yoga. What was mine, was mine. What was yours was mine too, if I could get it. Dakshina changed that for me — and so much more. This is why I invite you to join me in donating to the Ashram’s fall campaign. Financial support of the teachings is transformative.
When I first learned about dakshina, I had all sorts of resistance. I told myself I didn’t have it to give, which was true. I wasn’t exactly making ends meet at the time. Still, yoga had proven me wrong before, so I got creative. I started putting any change I found on the street on my puja. When the next campaign came around, I took that change and multiplied it by ten. Then I donated that amount, plus the found change, to Master Yoga. I think my first donation was $32.32. It was the bargain of a lifetime. What I gained in return was truly priceless. That small gesture opened a sluice of Guru’s Grace in me that has become a river. Not just any river — a Divine River — deep and wide. A River of Grace that flows through me from my Guru.
Guru’s Grace is ever flowing — ever https://svaroopa.org/donategenerous. I just need to be open to it. Giving what I can to the Ashram keeps me open in a very tangible way. I feel the Grace flowing, and I see the results in my life. I can now be generous in ways I didn’t even know possible before. Time, energy, space, attention, consideration, security — I seem to have an abundance of it all. It’s all so easy because it comes from Guru’s Grace. I just stay in the flow.
