Generosity is an action, a lifestyle, a philosophy, and state of being that takes us beyond the boundaries of our individuality – beyond our egos – and connects us to the needs and wellbeing of others. It’s a practice in being human that entails much more than sharing our wealth, but rather prompts us to change the way we live so that we all have what we need to live happy, healthy, and free.
Of the yamas, or the ethical disciplines for living as prescribed by Patanjali, asteya, not stealing or misusing what doesn’t belong to us, and aparigraha, not hoarding what we don’t immediately need, are foundational to generosity.
These interrelated commandments require one to live simply, to quell cravings for material objects, and to practice faith in an eternal source. And practicing these disciplines ultimately begins with connecting to our whole, eternal nature through the combination of posture and breathwork so we can lead lives that honor our interconnectedness.
How do you practice generosity?🤔💜
