Come as you are

The physical is only one aspect of yoga, a tool to help us go inward; the real goal of yoga is not the physical posture but an inner state of stillness

Growth and Freedom

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.Β –Β Viktor E. Frankl

Source of Suffering

Through practice, I’ve come to see that the deepest source of my misery is not wanting things to be the way they are. Not wanting myself to be the way I am. Not wanting the world to be the way it is. Not wanting others to be the way they are. Whenever I’m suffering, I find this war with reality to be at the heart of the problem.  – Stephen Cope

Who Are You Right Now?

You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now?

Selfish Attachments

Perform work in this world, Arjuna, as a man established within himself β€” without selfish attachments, and alike in success and defeat. For yoga is perfect evenness of mind (Bhagavad Gita 2: 47-48).
