Creating space for the sacred in our lives is more than finding that physical space outside of ourselves. There is sacred space within, as well.
Creating a space where you can honor the sacred inside of yourself can be the pause before a meal to give thanks, committing to a meditation practice, bowing to the light within self and others.
It can be a yoga practice, invoking any or all of the 8-fold path as described by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. Yoga comes from the work yuj, which means to join together, to yoke. An Elephant Journal article by Heather Morton expands on this, and the benefits of the holistic practice of yoga – in other words, why the 8-fold path matters.
Whatever creating a sacred space means to you, committing to the practice creates the infinite loop of the sacred in your life.
Take time this week to explore what sacred space means to you, and some of the ways you could do so in your life. If this is something you’ve been considering for awhile, and the time is right and ripe, move into that creation.
