Rough Road Ahead

rough road ahead

Yeah, no kidding, but imagine how much rougher if we didn't have a practice?

Through regular practice we visit challenging places with poise, grace, and joy.

We become more flexible and resilient, inside and out. We  are preparing for challenging times, that are sure to come.

When we can experience a less-conditional happiness, we get glimpses of unconditional happiness:

How we could live – more of the time.

Have you smiled yet today? Laughed?  Been happy?  Have you made someone else smile?

Sit still for a moment and count three things you are grateful for. What matters most to you?

Say thank you. Set a tone of appreciation. It's just a nicer way to live.

Joy happens below the surface, Nobody can do this inner work for us, but we don't have to do it alone.

We know all this… we forget all this…. Yoga reminds us.

how many smiles have you caused today? it's still early… get busy.

Om Shanti, I'll see you in class.

  1. Hi John,

    I missed class Thursday as I was out of town. I really missed it!! 🙂

    This is going to sound silly, but I’m going to tell you anyway. I have a straw hat that I love – kind of like the hats the gondolier people wear in Venice. Since I started wearing it again this summer I have noticed that it makes people smile. I of course smile back. And sometimes a conversation ensues. I used to wear it just because I liked it (and it keeps the sun off of me); now I’m wearing it for that reason and also for the smile reason. 🙂
