Yogic Wisdom

  • “Loving kindness towards ourselves doesn't mean getting rid of anything. It means we can still be crazy after all these years. We can still be angry after all these years. We can still be timid or jealous or full of feelings of unworthiness. The point is not to try to throw ourselves away and become something better. It's about befriending who we are already.” ⏤ Pema Chodron
  • “People who exude love are apt to give things away. They are in every way like rivers; they stream. And so when they collect possessions and things they like, they are apt to give them to other people. Because, have you ever noticed that when you start giving things away, you keep getting more?” ⏤ Alan Watts
  • “Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it.” ⏤ Rajneesh
  • “Go back to that state of pure being, where the I am" is still in its purity before it got contaminated with "this I am" or "that I am."” ⏤ Sri Ramana Maharshi
