One of the lessons that I learnt at Yoga Teacher Training was to practice non-attachment (vairagya), we were taught about this in class and also from the Sutra's.
While I was at Blue Osa, this lesson was put into practice for me.
I'd left a few items at home, in the mad last minute packing (when will I learn to become more organised at packing and in good time) and Chris offered to send me the items, he was informed the package would take five working days, to reach me from the UK to Costa Rica - perfect timing, as I was at Blue Osa for another three weeks.
The weeks past and there was no sign of the package, I I quickly realised that I would be learning the lesson of non-attachment a lot quicker that I had hoped.
After the initial disappointment, I pulled myself together and took a few deep breaths and let it go, I let the items go, I thanked the Universe and hoped the package was being enjoyed wherever it might be. Of course all of the items were replaceable and I would be able to source them again (if I required them) when I was back in the UK.
I've now been home for over two weeks and received the news that my package has arrived in Costa Rica and in the safe hands of Blue Osa.
After seven weeks of making the journey, my package with the items that I had come to terms that I would never have seen again, has turned up - but I won't get my hopes up, until it makes the journey from Costa Rica back to the UK.
Have there been times when you have practiced non-attachment? Let me know in the comments below.
