A disciplined practice requires devotion. Devotion to self, or devotion to something greater than the perceived self. Whether that is you, nature, the Universe, God, or however you wish to call it, having devotion helps to upkeep daily self-care practices. Devotion brings us out of the limited egoic mind, and draws us closer to the heart. When we engage in self care practices, whatever they may be, we are engaging in radical self-love. We are practicing loving kindness for ourselves and for all of existence. We are not only caring for ourselves, but caring for all sentient beings through our capacity to care for the self. This is devotion. Every single day.
How do you take care of yourself? What do you devote your self-care practice to? I would love to know! Please comment below Happy 12/12! May your devotion grow with each passing day, for the benefit of all!
