"If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough." A short stop at Feathered Pipe Ranch. I've heard of this space for as long as I've practiced yoga. And now, maybe, just maybe, I'll one day lead my own retreat there. The space, the grounds, the energy of the mountains...it couldn't be more perfect. But the fear of doing something new, something big, it sits in my stomach and rumbles.

Coming upon this lake on this hike....it didn't look real. Turning around to see the mountains in every direction, they didn't look real. How is it that when we are in the presence of such grand truth it doesn't seem real?

Fantastic flowers and a dragon.
One could sit here all day, contemplating and wondering about all the wonder that Mother Earth produces. And then with the taming hand of man......
"What does that mean - tame?"
"Just that," said the fox. "to me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world. . ."

No mud, no lotus. One of my favorite sayings....it's the title of a Thich Nhat Hanh book, it's s truth I understand deeply. Without mud, hard work, dirty hands, challenges, and failures...there can be no lotus, accomplishment, joy, and flowers of success.

Sometimes we, or at least I, just have to stop. Stop moving, planning, doing, and just be...be present with all of it...my breath, sensations as they arise, the world around me.

Yoga Sutra 1.3....Then the mind rests in a state of natural open attention. This comes after stilling the fluctuations of our busy minds, of course. Simple, yet no easy task....My own teacher says if you've got this down, then you can roll up your mat and go home. I keep my mat unrolled at all times. #yogasutras #patanjaliyogasutras #samadhipada #yogainpuntagorda #puntagordayoga #puntagorda #puntagordalife #yoga #yogaeverywhere #yogainthestreet #yogasanctuarypg #justsit #prajnayoga #cornerofmarionand41 @playtennispracticeyoga

The journey is long
and the path is pathless.
And one has to be alone -
there is no map and no guide.
But there is no alternative.
One cannot escape it,
one cannot evade it.
One has to go on the journey.
The goal seems impossible
but the urge to go on it is intrinsic.
The need is deep in the soul.
Really, you are the urge, you are the need -
and consciousness cannot be otherwise
because of this challenge
and because of this adventure.
So do not waste time - begin.
Do not calculate - begin.
Do not hesitate - begin.
Do not look back - begin.
And always remember old Lao Tzu's words:
A tree that takes both arms to be encircled grows from a tiny root.
A many storied pagoda
is built by placing one brick upon another brick.
A journey of three thousand miles is begun by a single step. ....Osho, A Cup of Tea

My yoga practice teaches me, every day, that I can do things I once believed impossible...and no, I'm not talking about kicking into a handstand and dropping into a backbend here....I'm talking about the real stuff, like forgiveness and empathy and patience with the world, with myself......
