Living Your Sadhana


Here is a Ram Dass quote from Be Here Now that sprung into my awareness yesterday via an accidental click on a beautiful blog, Resonating Truths.

People often say to me: “I would really like to do sadhana, but … I’m a teacher now. If I could only finish being a teacher, I could do sadhana.”

Baloney! You’re either doing sadhana or you’re not. Sadhana is a full time thing that you do because there is nothing else to do. You do it whether you’re teaching, or sitting in a monastery… whether you’re lying in bed, going to the toilet, making love, eating, everything is part of waking up. Everything is done without attachment. Another way of saying it is: It’s all done as consecrated action… it’s all dedicated… it’s all sacred.
