Your Life and Work Matters
I rise in the early dawn and go for a walk, in the crisp cool air.  The sun is rising a little later than it did three weeks ago, and the the coolness of the morning and delayed dawning, serve as a reminder that the fall season is not far behind. I receive ...

I Am Well. It is Well. All is Well.

Your Life is Your Practiceyoga
"The awakened mind has two attributes.  One is compassion, what some would call love. The other is clarity, what some would call sight. They are not really two things.  Each is a function of the other. When you see, really see, you just love. When you love,...
