Devotion to a higher being elevates acts of courage, trust & faith for me. As I come to my asana practice, and even come up against difficult or questionable situations in my life, I often have to rely on one or more of these traits. The willingness to allow these traits to come in to play is grounded in devotion. I have become devoted to my inner voice and a higher being. It takes some practice not to always fight back or use my inner fire to assume I know best. When I have the courage to trust in a higher power I am often led to a better place. The higher power for me has no gender, no form or name but is the essence of compassion, humility and grace.
