I think my biggest challenge is almost always around time. When I feel rushed, I suffer and make all those around me suffer. When I have a feeling of a buffer of time, it is nourishing for me and my family.

My area of challenge is around food, keeping myself nourished and available good food. So being mindful of making things ahead so I can pack for my day, so I do not feel as if I need to stop and shop for something that really isn't going to work for me. If I feel nourished around food, it translates to so much more energy for me!

OK - I wrote this poste around the holidays - however it still rings true. Whenever I begin wishing for more, bigger, better, or faster, I remind myself that I have everything that I need already - and all of the people, and "things" in my life are my abundance - which is great food for my meditation practice! Lets face it - living in our culture, Aparigrhaha can be challenging. Distinguishing the difference between our needs and our desires can churn up all kinds of deeply imbedded patterns. Does anyone have a grandparent who grew up in the depression era? Do you see any fear of not having "enough" first hand? Do you feel that you do not have "enough" of something? Perhaps love from a significant other/spouse/friend? Or Yoga pants (in my case), or time - or money? In what ways can you examine these fears to bring a greater awareness of Aparigraha into your life?

Stay present! Being in the moment - really breathing and taking stock in the moment help me to not desire too strongly or get frustrated because something isn't happening according to my expectations. Trust is crucial. It comes from a deep knowing that everything is as it should be, that there is always enough and that realizations come when we are ready.

We need to believe that there is enough for every one in this world. Otherwise we will start feeling a lack and this negative vibration will lead us to lack.
