I'm honored to be the first one to "blog" in 2012. The New Year ushers in a plethora of emotions and feelings! Certainly inspiring thoughts and asanas of new beginnings and starting over. Perhaps in your daily practice now, focus on postures that open the heart and promote feelings of openness to new ways of being in the world.
And it's never too late! Each year, month, week, day, hour, minute, second we have an opportunity to regroup and set our intention. We do that every time we practice yoga. I love these words . . . so appropriate at this time of year. Enjoy and live your BEST life in 2012!
"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.”
