“To be aflame with silence, with joy, is wisdom. It is not through logic but through love. It is not through words but through a wordless state called meditation or a state of no-mind, satori, samadhi.”—Osho (via lazyyogi)
I started this blog to explore life, yoga, and creativity. I knew then that no one else really cared about what I had to say. I did it just for myself. The funny thing is — I started being wowed by everyone else’s stuff— you know, I was re-blogging and not writing any of my own.
I felt like I had nothing to say that couldn’t be better said with a pithy quote or a gorgeous asana, a beautiful body, or a luscious plate of food. I love the expansion of my awareness that has come as a result of viewing all this great stuff, and will continue to read and reblog. But I need to return to my original purpose.
I want to align with my thoughts and values and explore. I am an introvert, so my expectations for putting my thoughts out there are low. Hmm, maybe there is a business idea for a blog for introverts to share? LOL, just a joke. Still, we are all on path of exploration. Who the fuck cares what I have to say? It’s okay if you don’t. But I do…..it’s the journey, not the destination. Enjoying it.
Shuni Mudra is known as the “seal of patience.” By placing the tip of the thumb to the tip of middle finger, this mudra promotes peace and discernment. It also said to give one courage to perform the task at hand.
“Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition, if we could only realize it. Nothing ever sums itself up in the way that we like to dream about. The off-center, in-between state is an ideal situation, a situation in which we don’t get caught and we can open our hearts and minds beyond limit. It’s a very tender, nonaggressive, open-ended state of affairs.”—Pema Chödrön (via lazyyogi)
