A Saturday at GRB

Good Morning Goose Rocks!

I came close to missing yoga this morning, the light was great. Not just that, but having the opportunity to breath in the ocean as well! "Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one's being, from bodily health to self realization. Yoga means union-the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul.

"Follow your nature. The practice is really about uncovering your own pose; we have great respect for our teachers, but unless we can uncover our own pose in the moment, it's not practice — it's mimicry.

Now I believe it to be more about consistency. Do get on the mat. Practice and life are not that different." — Judith Hanson Lasater

Good Night Goose Rocks!

What if mediation was our relationship

If wisdom was self knowledge
If love was the center of our being."
~Ganga White

Great words that I learnt at sea and they still ring a bell for me with every full moon since...
