The Many Flavors Of Love
As the saying goes, “love is a many-splendored thing.” But with every high comes a low and with every beginning, eventually, comes an ending. Marking the end of a yoga program, such as Yoga 45 for 45 (can you believe our official first rotation ends tomorrow, on Valentine’s Day!), can be exhilarating and disappointing. You might be proud of yourself for making a commitment and seeing it through while wondering, “what’s next?” and grieving the end of a journey that cannot be repeated in the same exact way again. And this is love.
Love has many colors and flavors ranging from ecstasy to grief. One of my favorite sayings comes from author Elizabeth Lesser who writes, “grief is leftover love.” So as we approach Valentine’s Day I encourage you to honor your unique relationship with this manufactured holiday and I invite you to move beyond the mind of comparison. Your current relationship with love will not look like anyone else’s. You might be in the throes of new love, you might find yourself nurturing a broken heart from the loss of a partnership or a loved one, or you might be relishing blissful independence. Whatever your experience of love is at this moment, it is valid, beautiful, and worthy of celebrating.
And, wherever you find yourself on Valentine’s Day, Inner Dimension TV has practices to support you whether that’s in a moment of joy or sorrow.
