Sunday is Community Day at the kids’ school, and I must admit –I’m feeling a bit blah about it. Once the weekend rolls around– hanging shelves and hammering hooks into the wall doesn’t really appeal.
But I’ll go.
And I’ll bring the kids with me.
As a yogi I should probably be more into the whole selfless service thing. After all, karma is inscribed allover the practice. But it’s never come easy to me. I remember during my teacher training when I had to cleanup the studio, I felt the same kind of blah.
See–the thought of hanging shelves and hammering hooks gives me the blahs. But clearly that’s not what Community day is all about. I get stuck at that thought. So the solution is to stop thinking about it. Just do it. I know once I’m there — chatting with the other moms and helping with the hooks, it’ll be fine. It could even be fun.
The law of karma says this:
Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind . . . what we sow is what we reap. And when we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our karma is happiness and success.
So yes, I’m going because it’s good karma.
But mostly I’m going because it’s good for the soul.
How do you feel about selfless service and karma?
