Jewish Yoga - This weeks parsha (Shemot) is amazing to me. It speaks of a particular name of G-d that could teach us all.
The name in particular is Eyeh asher Eyeh אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה ( just eyeh for short, says G-d)
The beauty of this name is that it can be and has been translated, as both “ I am that which I am” and “ I will be that which I will be”
And before he is given the name, Moshe was asked to take of his shoes, as he was entering holy ground showing the importance of this particular name.
Remember that we are all made in the image of the most holy and in that we too have that spark of divine within us. The purest and best part of us called B’tzelem Eloheim (in God’s image) _____ that which many around us may say “Namaste” ( the divine in me recognizes the divine in you) to illuminate.
Godliness is without ego, anxiety or comparison. So the next time you take off your sandals to practice your Yoga and enter your own holy ground, look deep within to find that purest self that can say “I am what I am and I will be what I will be. “ and relish the pure acceptance and is-ness that is our connection to the divine.
