You are not given the light by anyoneâ€”not even by a spiritual teacher. You are that light. Sri Swami Satchidananda
The Bible says “You are the light of the world”.
Yogi Bhajan says “ “Travel light, live light, spread the light, be light”
Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame. B.K. S. Iyengar
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
â€• Martin Luther King Jr
Where do we get that light? It’s already there! It’s who we are. But, we can dim our own light by our own negativity, by the mind’s trick of forgetting. Re-kindle your own light with your Yoga practice. The more we practice asana and pranayama, we open up ourselves to the boundless energy of light available to us from the entire Universe. If you don’t know any other yoga practices, at least you should do a little deep breathing. Check out my friend and Integral Yoga colleague, Swami Asokananda, teaching breathing techniques to his students.
Lighten up and enjoy life!
