In the absence of ego you are at peace. Without your ego, which is sometimes bruised, proud, confused, unwelcome, leading astray, out beyond your control, over-inflated, defeated, attached to the moment, or clinging to the now- recognize your quietude.
Behind your eyes see peace. Within your soul draw upon the pleasantness of neither over or under achieving; rather, simply being. Enjoy.
A teacher of mine from the SKY Yoga Foundation once profoundly told our class, “If you cannot smile (while in an asana) you’re doing it wrong (the asana) (sic)” (1994, Philadelphia, SKY Yoga Studio at Garland of Letters, South St. 19102).
A prayer for this joyous, ongoing season of life . . .
A Hindu Prayer
Lord lead us from falsehood to truth,
from the unreal to the real,
from darkness to light.
