By letting go our fascination with the extraordinary and spectacular, we can allow ourselves to recognize the simple wonder that lies within the ordinary.
For life is it's own purpose and doesn't need a reason to be. That is it's beauty.
You can look in the strangest of places and find something comical!
Find a place to put a smile in your voice.
A place in your conversation to laugh, even if its not that funny...it makes you feel brighter
Even better...laugh at yourself...your fears...your silly mistakes..your worries and most of all the things you love about yourself!
What terrible thing happened that could actually be quite funny..but be careful if you try to help others see the funny side in the middle of frustration, they may groan or snap at you
..do you dare test the water? use your intuition with forgetting to try.
Time is an illusion
Love makes everything get done quicker, it inspires.
Only with inspiration can we do anything outside of the boundaries of time!
YOGA and the Sun
The sun's atmosphere clashes with the earths atmosphere which creates the Aurora.
The sun is as much a risk to the earth as an essential aspect of earths existence.
In order for the earth to be maintained, it must remain on the edge: at its exact location.
Just the right distance for water to exist in all parts of the world.
These facts can tell us something about our yoga practice and our life.
Something wonderful and essential to us can equally be a risk or a danger.
But the truth is, in the end it all keeps us alive.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
Confucious 479-551 BCE
Going with the flow of life means moving through the emotions, the obstacles.
The elephants having arrived at a place they were drawn to find water, find none, just keep moving to the next place.
They don't give up listening to their inner knowing.
Of course, there is a chance, it maybe a wrong turn or a dead end.
The moving journey will only really tell,
they can move, so they do.
Rather than see the light...be the light!...how does it feel eh?
Use both clear seeing and clear being to move forward....its easier than you think.
Do you wish to rise?
Begin by descending.
You plan to build a tower that rises to the clouds, lay the foundations of humility.
St Augustine, South Africa
How long it takes to find stillness is irrelevant, time is an illusion.
what matters is that you get there in the end!
