The Meaning of Mukta:
In Sanskrit, MUKTA means released, liberated, freed. Moksa/Moksha is closely related to Mukta, meaning liberation or freedom. I’ve chosen to bring attention to Mukta as its tense communicates that it has already taken place, just as we are already free. We simply have to recognize it.
- What has been weighing you down? What muck has settled upon your leaves and made itself at home?
- It is time to let everything go. Release it all. Free yourself.
- Yesterdays. Expectations. Shoulds. Regrets. Projections. Lamentations. Let them fly away in the breeze.
- Mukta often refers to spiritual liberation, but our spirits cannot find freedom when the mind entraps.
- Where to begin? Find your breath, let it be a release. Take in the fresh air and watch all your worries disappear with each exhale. Stretch and be expansive with the grace of the weightless.
Free your mind and the rest will follow.
