In keeping with nature’s rhythms, at the Ayurveda Resort Mandira we meditate on the cycle of the year. Each of the four seasons is enriching in its own way.
Spring awakens the inner garden: a time to sow the seeds for a new beginning. Anger and rage can be redirected, becoming driving forces instead.
Summer is the time for the inner fire: allowing our potential to blossom. We can rejoice in the season’s energy and zest for life.
Autumn is a time for letting go. What are the thought patterns and behaviours that need to be discarded for best benefit? The result is thankfulness.
Winter is the season of tranquillity and reflection: to go deep within to experience the inner light and locate the essence of our being and its quiet, inexhaustible power.
As my mind drifts and I start thinking about other things, I acknowledge that my attention has wandered, let go of the thoughts, and return my focus to my breath. A simple mantra such as ‘I am’ can be helpful in restoring focus.
What are my true desires, what do I wish for regarding a particular subject or story? I focus my creative imagination to awaken beautiful images and good feelings. I start to dream consciously. Afterwards, I consider what actions I might take to put things in motion.
