What do you spend most of your time thinking about?
• How much you have, what’s going well for you, what lights up your life.
• What you don’t have, what externalities limit you, or who’s wronged you.
Where you put your attention, e x p a n d s. This goes for the good and the bad, the gap and the gains, listed above.
Ritual is the act of creating dedicated time and space to direct our attention and set intentions. Remembering to choose has an outsized, positive effect on our lives. But it’s not easy! If it was we’d all be doing it at every moment and probably walking around looking & acting somewhat strange.
So instead, we have ritual & ceremony.
Anyone can do this 3-part ritual to expand their impact in the world on any day, but especially on May 14th 2021, Akshaya Tritiya.
Akshaya Tritiya is the Vedic calendar’s most auspicious day of the year. The word Akshaya means “never diminishing” heralding infinite growth and abundance. Tritiya is the 3rd day of the waxing moon. On Akshaya Tritiya, there’s no end to the positive impact of kindness, prayers and charity. It’s an excellent day to make important purchases, initiate something new, or donate to charity. The possibilities of love, healing, and prosperity are said to be magnified and any meaningful activity started on this day will be fruitful and yield great results!
