Yoga & The Flower

“Thoughts can create such a barrier that even if you are standing before a beautiful flower, you will not be able to see it. Your eyes are covered with layers of thought… ”
–    Another yoga wisdom gem from an unknown writer…

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
–    Albert Einstein

The further in to yoga I go, the more the act of thinking gets a bad wrap….

But that was until I found today’s second quote from a truly great thinker – Albert Einstein.

Thoughts can cloud the beauty around you, but engaging with the content of your mind – even if it is irrational bla bla, can reveal some beauty too.  Your mind is just a part of you.

Yours,

Restaurant reviewers find it easier to travel incognito, and so do I. I travel a lot for work and use this as an excuse check out yoga classes, yoga courses and yoga colleges around my home country, Australia. In this yoga blog, I refer to yoga centres in Sydney. I am not actually a yoga teacher, just a passionate yoga student.

I have practised yoga in the US and have done yoga courses in India but have no bias towards any yoga style. Actually, maybe I am biased to a yoga style, or at least certain methods of education applied in yoga courses, but I’ll leave it to you to find out what that is. My mission? I just want people to think a little deeper about yoga.
