Yogic Wisdom

  • “The wise stand out because they see themselves as part of the Whole. They shine because they don't want to impress. They achieve great things because they don't look for recognition. Their wisdom is contained in what they are, not their opinions. They refuse to argue, so no-one argues with them.” ⏤ Laozi
  • “You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.” ⏤ Alan Watts
  • “Remember that you don't have to like or admire someone to feel compassion for that person. All you have to do is wish for that person to be happy.” ⏤ Thanissaro Bhikkhu
  • “Don't expect others to change. Instead, take on the project and see if you can become the change you want to see in the world. Try your best to let go of anger, blame and seeing yourself as a victim.” ⏤ Sharon Gannon
