Week 39.1 - Climb you mountain, so you can see the world better, not so others can see you

First week of Fall (Equinox)

With a new season comes a new opportunity for change. Imagine walking up to a door tonight, and walk through…”Today, I close the door to my past, open the door to my future, take a deep breath, step through, and start a new chapter in my life.”

Yoga teaches us to create a life that feels good on the inside and not just the outside.

Mastery of yoga is really measured by how it influences our day-to-day living, how it enhances our relationships, how it promotes clarity and peace of mind. T.K.V. Desikachar

"If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. In our thoughts and words we create our own weaknesses and our own strengths."

“Rule your mind or it will rule you.”― Buddha

If you seek peace, be still. If you seek wisdom, be silent. If you seek love, be yourself.

To have a testimony, we first need a test. Climb you mountain, so you can see the world better, not so others can see you.

"Your past may have shaped you, but it does not define who you are now. What defines you is what you do now, your actions now, and what you have become since the past you left behind." ~Kerry Campbell

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. " ~ Melody Beattie

"Climb your mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you."

The same pose, on a different day, with a different intention, takes on a whole new meaning.

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man. Heraclitus

Give hope a try..."It's impossible," said pride. "It's risky," said experience. "It's pointless," said reason. "Give a try," whispered the heart.

Don't look for a friend who will solve all your problems. Look for someone who won't let you face them alone.

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

“If the problem can be solved why worry? If the problem cannot be solved worrying will do you no good.” – Buddha

"Keep calm and be crazy, laugh, love, and live it up because this is the oldest you've been and the youngest you'll ever be again."

“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.”

“If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the world belongs to you.” – Lao Tzu
