'It is your body, your mind and your thoughts. They should listen to you. When you become lazy and negligent, they begin to boss you. Remember, you are the master of yourself. Your body, mind, thoughts and everything else round you are gifts of nature. By using these gifts you can accomplish your highest purpose - to recognize that the infinite library of knowledge lies within you. And when you start studying the book of life, you start gaining that knowledge which dispels the darkness of ignorance and fear' Swami Rama of the Himalayas

'Be aware of that which is right in front of you; then you will be able to grasp what is out of your sight. For there is nothing that is hidden that will not be known ~ The Gospel of Thomas

'Really love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good' ~ Romans 12.9-18

'Be faithful in little things because it is in them that your strength lies' ~ Mother Theresa

'You don't have to to have a college degree TO SERVE. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree TO SERVE. You don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity TO SERVE. You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics TO SERVE. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. And you can be THAT SERVANT.' ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

If you want to be sad, no one in the world can make you happy. But if you make up your mind to be happy, no-one and nothing on earth can take that happiness from you' ~ author of Autobiography of a Yogi

'Rather than procrastination seek a window of flexibility' ~ t.noyes

'DETERMINE exactly what is most important to accomplish in any given day ~ and DO IT' ` t.noyes

Liberation (mukti, moksha) is the continuous ecstatic enjoyment of the transcendental Self. It is the raison d'etre of all authentic Yoga. The technology of Yoga fulfills itself in its own transcendence. For liberation is not a technique but a way of being in the world without being of it. After climbing to the topmost rung on a ladder of Yoga, accomplished yogins kick off the ladder and abandon themselves to the infinite play of Reality' ~ georg feurstein

"Yoga is like an ancient river, it has countless rapids, eddies, loops, tributaries, and backwaters and extends over a vast, colorful terrain of many different habitats. So when we speak of yoga, we speak of a multitude of paths and orientations with contrasting theoretical frameworks and occasionally incompatible goals." ~ georg feuerstein (1947 ~ 2012)

"without the Yama's, known as the ethical rules, there is no success in Yoga." dharma mittra

'Focusing on a challenge magnifies its effects. Turn away from the situation and withdraw your emotion. Pause, and let serenity in. The door of the improbable opens at your true moment of need, relax' ~s.woldman

'CHAMPIONS ARNE'T MADE IN GYMS. CHAMPIONS ARE MADE FROM SOMETHING THEY HAVE DEEP INSIDE THEMSELVES. A DESIRE, A DREAM, A VISION' ~ Mohammed Ali

The whole universe is our home and all residing in it belong to our family...Instead of trying to see God in a particular appearance, it is better to see him in everything."  -Neem Karoli Baba

"We most often believe what we sense, or see, through our eyes. In order to realize truth we must, from moment to moment, remind ourselves to not rely on that which is 'surface seeing' but to seek vision from a different source, one much deeper than the surface physical. We must put aside judgement and open our higher Self and soul to that which 'is' ~ that we all are one in the same. Yet at the same time recognize the many who wear the face and walk the walk of the physical experience. For those who see and feel through inner vision it becomes our responsibility to help others to see that underneath the physical experience we all share the same beginning, and in that beginning all is as it should be. Good with bad, Pure with evil ~ for this is balance. It becomes our responsibility, as a whole, to feed that which is good and pure, tipping the scale to bring world balance back. For there is too much evil in our world of today. This one action, taken by the many, can create a positive ripple throughout the world in which we live ~ let us begin ~ tip the scale' t.noyes, MBS RYT

Flowers unfold slowly and gently, bit by bit in the sunshine, and a soul too must never be punished or driven, but unfolds in its own perfect timing to reveal its true wonder and beauty' - The Findhorn Garden, from the Findhorn Community.   

'Yoga is not for him who gorges too much, nor for him who starves himself. It is not for him who sleeps too much, nor for him who stays awake. By moderation in eating and in resting, by regulation in working and by concordance in sleeping and waking, Yoga destroys all pain and sorrow' B.K.S Iyengar, Light on Yoga

One day the sun admitted,
I am just a shadow.
I wish I could show you
The Infinite Incandescence (Tej)
That has cast my brilliant image!
I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The Astonishing Light Of your own Being!
~Renderings of Hafiz

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Be the change that you want to see in the world.
Mohandas Gandhi

So, let us not be blind to our differences—but let us also direct attention to our common interests and to the means by which those differences can be resolved.Robert F. Kennedy

Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child, listen to the don'ts -
listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts -
listen to the never haves,
Then listen close to me.
Anything can happen child.
ANYTHING can be....
Shel Silverstein.....

Your soul mission is your reason for being, your life purpose. It's your calling in life - who you feel called to be, what you feel called to do. Mission is an energy that flows through you - a drive, voice, or passion that you cannot ignore... It's what you know in your heart you must live if you are to experience inner peace and harmony. ~ Alan Seale

 

Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame, B.K.S Iyengar

Your body is the life force power of some fifty trillion molecular geniuses. You and you alone choose moment by moment who and how you want to be in this world. I encourage you to pay attention to what is going on in your brain. Own your power and show up for your life. BEAM BRIGHT!' Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D, My Stroke of Insight

'The source of all creation is pure consciousness...pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest. And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe'
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak Chopra

"May this be a morning of innocent beginning, when the gift within you slips clear of the sticky web of the personal....A morning when you become a pure vessel for what wants to ascend from silence"
