TILL THE COWS COME HOME
When asked what is yoga? my typical response will be along the lines of "how much time do you have? because I can go on till the cows come home, but let me just tell you this for now"....and each time I will find myself saying something different, as a testimony to the richness of the discipline I guess.
Yoga is an elaborate and brilliant system that enables us to move beyond the grind of daily tumult, and discover the deeper layers of our being, where generous amounts of quietude, patience, humanity, amity and gratitude permanently reside, underlying the discontent, the mental discord, and the anxiety of scarcity. And although the journey will start on the mat through postures, alignment and breathing, it ultimately always ends up leading us back to the place we are always at, but seldom care to recognize: Ourselves.
In that place, you learn to stop making things happen, but rather allow them to happen.. In that place, there is no need to do anything but just be.
