    Forgiveness is Love

    Forgiveness is Love

    "The ego doesn't even trust itself, much less anyone else."
    "Forget love, forgiveness is love. Then the love appears...it's already there."
    "I have to forgive what's out there, rather than trying to change what's out there."
    "We don't have to do anything to have things show up for us. We just have to get out of the way, and let the things come. As they come in, just accept them, enjoy them, and then release them."
    "Fear is a basic state of separation."
    "If I can catch it, I can dismiss it."
    "Whatever's unhealed for us, will follow us wherever we go."
    "What's your motivation for choosing love?"
    "I feel better."
    "When I get into a fearful state, things don't flow."
    "I realized that there must be a better way."
    "I'll be in the victim state. Until I get tired of it. Then I want to find love again."
    "There's an ethics with laughter."
    "Wherever you are at any given moment, that's the perfect place to be."
    "I heard about enlightened masters, but I never actually experienced one until I came here."
    "My job in life is to stay in a laughing state."
    "There's nobody that I've ever seen on a spiritual path that didn't laugh. And some of them laugh a lot!"

    Opening to Magic

    Opening to Magic

    "What matters most is I think is being compassionate, kind, and understanding your mind - watching it, observing."
    "The fact that we're conscious beings living on a beautiful planet filled with such a huge variety of living things...it's astonishing, it's awesome - as the people would say."
    "Awe-inspiring. Awesome is a word overused. I think it's a sacred word that should be applied to the places that are that, not because someone drives a pedal pushing car or something. That's not awesome, that's just ordinary."
    "All of that is, "oh people are going to love me for doing this." That blocks off really understanding what there is around. So, you have to work outside of that, and that's what comes on...this beauty of whatever there is."
    "You know, if you look at little little children walking, they'll stop at every leaf and every bush, and they'll look at it. See, they're taking everything in. Everything is like new to them. So every moment, every second, is like ten minutes to you."
    "Wouldn't it be great if we could do that? Live every moment, just like that. We walk so fast, we miss what's around us. We miss...the magic."
    "The true thing is to know, what you know, that comes from you, that you discover. Then it's yours. Otherwise it's not yours, it's someone else's."
    "The whole process is getting plugged in, getting the juice."
    "Most of the time people are asleep. They're consciously asleep, and they want someone else to tell them what to do, or how to do, or who they are, or what they are."
    "He said (Swami Satchidananda) "Well, if I tell you what to do, you will do it because I told you. What do you want to do? You find out."
    "If you're connected to the root of your being, what you're here for, your purpose. Then you serve some function in the world...you can do something for good, and you can do something creative."

    Relaxed and Energized

    "By being present and really connecting with someone, you're definitely serving that individual."
    "Plan, control my expectations. Balance being here now, and at the same time having a plan."
    "When we're triggered, we can do deep work."
    "Organization is the key to self-care"
    "Asana is a vehicle to direct the prana."
    "Have a nice strong root, and then start growing from that root."

    Meditate on Death

    Meditate on Death

    One of the essential teachings of Yoga is to be authentic. There's no need to add anything else. Who you are is the unchanging source of pure awareness. As we rest more deeply in our selves, the experience is more and more joyful, and less dependent on things appearing or being a certain way in the world around us.
