The nature of yoga is to shed the light of awareness into the dark corners of body & mind.
In yoga we move from outer awareness to inner awareness.
We withdraw our senses from the outer world & turn inward to meet with our inherent divine nature. In our asana practice we seek to tie our mind to the breath & weave it into the physical posture & beyond. In that way the asana practice becomes a gateway into deeper levels of profound presence & awareness.
Yoga means union. Union of body, soul & spirit. Our inner true nature & innocence. So yoga is a reunion with that innate inner wisdom we all hold but so many of us seem to have lost touch with. When we return to the genuine pure wisdom & nature of who we are, we are released from the aching burdensome mind so often mingled into our lives. An innermost sacred stillness now emanates from our depths. Divine intimacy. The pure nature of grace, love & serenity.
An edge can be a new beginning
A fall into the abyss can be a fall
Into the presence of God
A new life of mercy
Compassion, forgiveness & love
Yoga is my shelter
My sacred path & sadhana
Hiding in the shade of a yogic life
I find a sacred legacy now known to be
My unfolding destiny
I am all & yet nothing
Breathing life into being
Through my bare existence
An inner stillness dwells
Upon the altar of my heart
This is where you find me
In a mystical world of beyond
Inseparable from silence
Perfection in asana is achieved when the effort to perform it becomes effortless & the infinite being within is reached.
