goodnight february

It's hard to believe February is almost over. I must admit...I am very happy about this. With the arrival of March, I know longer days with more sunlight are coming, flowers will be starting to peek through the ground, grass will soon be greener, and spring will be arriving in full bloom soon!

The yama of the month for March is satya (truthfulness). On the right, you will find a brief description, action, and mantra to help you focus on satya this month. If one can have a favorite yama, I think satya would be mine. More than simply not telling lies, satya is about living authentically. I believe much human suffering comes from living a life that isn't based in one's own personal truth. We all have a personal responsibility to live our lives truthfully and authentically...this is our biggest act of service and gift to the world.

May we know truth.
May we speak truth.
May we live in truth.

I am the opposite ... I often feel down come the beginning of March. In New Zealand, March is the start of autumn and I am sad to say good-bye to summer!

I like your "yama of the month". I will keep satya in my mind during March.
