filling this moment

The moment during the day when we very first open our eyes and come into consciousness is a precious opportunity. It sets the tone for all that comes after it, like the opening scene in a film or novel. At this moment, our ability to create the day is at its most powerful, and we can offer ourselves fully to the creative process by filling this moment with whatever inspires us most. It may be that we want to be more generous, or it may be that we want to be more open to beauty in our daily lives. Whatever the case, if we bring this vision into our minds at this very fertile moment, we empower it to be the guiding principle of our day.

wholeness

So why do we really practice yoga? Because life wants us to be whole in the widest and truest sense of the word.

—Richard Rosen


whatever happens

We fall often from our center, most of the time even; but here comes another opportunity, and another, and we are still breathing, and whatever happens, all shall be well.

—Roger Housden
