As a yoga student or teacher, I wager you’ve actually heard a lot about detachment. You’ve actually probably heard a lot about finding joy within and increasing above the ever before peaking and increasing highs and lows of happiness derived from material things. Real enough. Well stated. Fair play.

But is the focus on detachment and living a spiritually plentiful life at the cost of financial abundance really the point?

What about God? The G-word? Aka Om, cosmic energy, the universe, or the source. Is not really the entire point of yoga to have an intimate understanding of this principle? They don’t call Patanjali’s Sutras ‘Ways to Know God’ for nothin’.

When we start to get straight to the point of yoga and various other spiritual practices, the ‘Stop buying stuff you like’ focus falls apart. Due to the fact that nothin’ is more abundant than Om.

Samadhi. Ananda. Bliss. They all describe a state of being that basically means the greatest, deepest, bountiful love we will ever before experience. And entering into that state is no small thing. It’s life changing. It’s the biggest experience we will ever before have.

And yup, it originates from within. We carry Om in our soul. Like Rumi states, “You aren’t just the drop in the ocean. You’re the mighty ocean in the drop.” We hold the ocean in our physical self, within our spirit.

Our deepest, biggest happiness comes from that place. It’s uplifting, it’s anchoring, and it’s affirming. It’s a light within that’ll direct the method when we can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. And no product thing will do that for us.

But yoga isn’t practiced specifically by men who wish to spend many of their time in caverns. It’s evolved. And it’s developed for a reason. I do not know for sure, but I think it’s due to the fact that it was simply time. It was time for yoga to make a bigger difference, and enter into today’s cultures in a way that makes sense.

We are not living in caverns. We are residing in apartments, condos, and homes in the suburban areas. We are not surviving our own. We belong to neighborhoods, households and colleagues. We generate income. We contribute. We look for enjoyment.

And why not? What if your drop the magnificent ocean exists in is indicated to live out abundance in the product world. After all, this is where we live, where we’re incarnated.

It just makes a small glimmer of sense to say ‘no’ to abundance in the material world as a means to start to experience the happiness and ever-lasting abundance of the soul within. Once you have got that? Do not select struggle. Do not pick sacrifice. Choose love.

When you run from that place, abundance will naturally follow. Do not feel guilty or disgraceful. It’s not a representation of your absence of spirit– it’s a representation of your spirit.
