Yogic Wisdom

  • “Ceasing to do evil, Cultivating the good, Purifying the heart: This is the teaching of the Buddhas.” ⏤ Buddha
  • “Being aware of your breath forces you into the present moment - the key to all inner transformation. Whenever you are conscious of the breath, you are absolutely present. You may also notice that you cannot think and be aware of your breathing. Conscious breathing stops your mind.” ⏤ Eckhart Tolle
  • “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
  • “If you meditate regularly, even when you don’t feel like it, you will make great gains, for it will allow you to see how your thoughts impose limits on you. Your resistances to meditation are your mental prisons in miniature.” ⏤ Ram Dass
