Yogic Wisdom

  • “In practicing meditation, we’re not trying to live up to some kind of ideal–quite the opposite. We’re just being with our experience, whatever it is.” ⏤ Pema Chodron
  • “We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves,” the universe “peoples.” Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.” ⏤ Alan Watts
  • “Fill your hearts with love and gratitude. Life gives us what we need and not necessarily what we want. It follows its own wisdom, which is often incomprehensible to our gross minds. We should learn to accept situations in life. This attitude of acceptance is the secret to happiness.
    ⏤ Mata Amritanandamayi
  • “Our breath, like our heartbeat, is the most reliable rhythm in our lives. When we become attuned to this constant rhythm, our breath can gradually teach us to come back to the original silence of the mind.” ⏤ Donna Farhi
