Finally converted my former rooftop garden into indoor plantings, since I moved across town into a pad that doesn’t have outdoor space. Not having outdoor space anymore isn’t so bad!
Silly past version of me was very attached to symbols (outdoor space, living among palm trees and parrots of Dolores) of how hard I had worked to move to and start a life in SF from the east coast...7 yrs ago. (7 yrs?! Let it go already!)
Through the lens of yoga #philosophy, I recognize this attachment as a psycho emotional attachment to ego (self identity - “I am this. I am that.”) and attachment to pleasure & pain past. These attachments, or in #sanskrit, “kleshas,” obstructed my ability to do good work (yoga off the mat - interacting with myself and others according to a set of ethical observances) in the now with spiritual or mental clarity: move across town (admitting to truth “satya,” accepting contentment “santosha”), reallocate resources towards development versus property (non hoarding/non attachment “aparigraha”), commit fully to a relationship (doing work that is hard “tapas”).
It’s an out of body experience to observe the self (self study “svadhyaya”) through the lens of yoga philosophy while moving into a new home or leaving one behind. Taking the time to study brought me much relief and equanimity. Try it! (And try it w out attachment to consequences of relief or no relief.) #practicemakespractice (h/t to the teachers) #rowenamittalyoga #sfyoga .
Who knew looking at my 🌱over morning ☕️could inspire me this way?! 🤗
