On stillness

“To a mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”

To the yogi

“To the yogi, all experience is seen as one, as a means to help him cultivate devotion. All experiences have equal meaning and value.” ~

On gratitude

“The attitude of gratitude is the highest Yoga.”

On being balanced

“Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird wings.” ~Rumi

On being a practitioner

Do not pursue the past.

Do not lose yourself in the future.

The past no longer is.

The future has not yet come.

Looking deeply at life as it is in the very here and now;

the practitioner dwells in stability and freedom.

~Bhaddekaratta Sutta

Struggle is real

      Finding balance is not an easy feat.
