introduction to sankalpa
You know about New Years resolutions/intentions and setting goals. Those intentions usually start with ‘I will’.
We summon our willpower and promise to change not just what we do but who we are. We set goals and imagine how happy we will be when we get what we want.
Most New Year’s resolutions come from the misguided desires of the ego, senses, and conditioning. They almost always fail because they start from the assumption that who you are is not good enough, and reinforce the belief that your happiness depends on acquiring what you want.
Yoga offers a refreshing alternative to the New Year’s resolution: the practice of Sankalpa.
A Sankalpa practice starts from the assumption that you already are who you need to be to fulfill your life’s dharma (purpose of life). All you need to do is focus your mind, connect to your most heartfelt desires, and channel the divine energy within.
Kalpa means vow, or the rule to be followed above all other rules.
San refers to a connection with the highest truth.
Sankalpa is a vow and commitment we make to support our highest truth. A Sankalpa honors the deeper meaning of our life.
Discovering your Sankalpa is a process of listening. Your heartfelt desire is already present, waiting to be seen, heard, and felt. It’s not something you need to make up, and the mind doesn’t have to go searching for it.
The first step in discovering your Sankalpa is to listen. The willingness to hear the message of the heartfelt desire. It can take courage to listen to the heart, and a quiet, settled mind (one cultivated through meditation, yoga and pranayama) will best be able to hear this innermost call.
The second step, is to sit with it, feel it and reflect upon the message that arises.
The final step, is the willingness to do what the heartfelt desire requires of you. It will call you into action, into the world.
In this challenge, we invite you to go on a search and practice together.
