When you stand in the present moment, you are timeless.
There's so much fear running our lives that we forget to be human when it really counts.
As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death.
I think the health of your mind depends on your being able to love your body.
Any doorway that leads you to a deeper understanding of who you are is worthwhile.
Listen deeply. Meditate on that which is arising. Even if it's boredom or difficulty or maybe a feeling of being stuck, that in itself can be the work for your practice.
Meditation is a silent way of looking at resistance. You're not running away from it you're sitting with the resistance.
That's exactly how it is in yoga. The places where you have the most resistance are actually the places that are going to be the areas of the greatest liberation.
Train yourself to be in awe of the subtle, and you will live in a world of beauty and ease.
Become better listeners. Practice the art of listening in everything you do. Not just listening to yourself and your body, but listening to the people around you, listening to the plant world, the animal world. Really open your ears to what's coming at you. From there, see if you can have the ability to respond instead of react. And that usually comes with listening. If the observation and the listening are deep, then your action will be deep also.
Wellness within is mindfulness and acceptance of what you are, what you feel inside and how it's always changing. That process is helped by being attentive to the breath as it moves through the body.
