If yoga is anything, I guess it is showing up to the yoga centre and doing it. Or, perhaps not even that – just showing up to yourself, and doing your asanas at home.
I was contemplating yoga celebrity the other day (not bitching) and I came across this little gem.

“Yoga is the cessation of mind”
– Some Yoga wisdom from Patanjali
I know very little of Lao Tse, but I recognise something of value in this small yogic morsel.
“Meditation here may think down hours to moments. Here the heart may give a useful lesson to the head and learning wiser grow without his books. ”

“He who sees all beings in his own self, and his own self in all beings, loses all fear”.
