I've been thinking a lot about living and speaking my truth lately, as this isn't always as easy as it may seem. As a person continuously evolves, especially by living from the heart, one may start to realize that their values, ethics, goals, dreams, etc., may not align with family members, friends, colleagues, mentors or other people in life who have been trusted in the past. If you connect with what's deep inside your heart, and you know or feel that your actions are the right decisions for you, then stick with what it is you believe in.
Tips for living and speaking your truth: Watch your actions and reactions, and stand up for yourself with dignity with respect and RESPONSE-ability. Remember: We are human, so this is a practice of grace, or bringing love into any difficult situation. Pain may be inflicted to those involved, but if you look at the bigger picture and realize that everyone will actually benefit from living that truth, then stick with it!
Satya embodies these ideas. Satya is a Yama in yoga, which are commitments that affect yogis' relations with others according to Patanjali's classical yoga system.
Sat = Truth
Ya = To be, to activate
Satya = truth, reality
Satya is to be truthful in one's thoughts, speech, and actions. This is more than just "telling the truth". One's actions must be in accordance with one's words and thoughts, and as a result, you attract what aligns with your "truth". "To be established in truthfulness, actions and their results become subservient." ~ Kripalu~Mantra
Ultimately, being deeply seated/rooted in your truth will allow for you to attract what you are deeply wanting (and needing) in your life, whether than be in healing, relationship, dharma, career, and life purpose. It will bring you to light and align you with the path you are meant to be on, as well as attract the people who are meant to be in our life so that you can move forward with your dreams and hearts desires!
Satya gives us a chance to examine the concept of honesty:
*What do you think when you notice a person (or even yourself) saying they do something but their actions say otherwise?
