This book of poems took me a while to work to through. Each poem left cause for deep reflection and thought. Some definitely resinated with me more than others and many required several rereads to truly absorb the meaning.

" Go in and in. Be the space. between two cells,. the vast, resounding. silence in which. spirit dwells...."

That is the most beautiful poem this woman wrote.... I've read the entire book but that is the one that I have memorized and cherish deeply.

Dana Faulds has a beautiful way to describe the spirit of yoga, and this is the best reading after practice and during meditation or right before students get out of Savasana.

“Why wait for your awakening?

The moment your eyes are open, seize the day.

Would you hold back when the Beloved beckons?

Would you deliver your litany of sins like a child's collection of sea shells, prized and labeled?

"No, I can't step across the threshold," you say, eyes downcast.

"I'm not worthy, I'm afraid, and my motives aren't pure."

"I'm not perfect, and surely I haven't practiced nearly enough."

"My meditation isn't deep, and my prayers are sometimes insincere."

"I still chew my fingernails, and the refrigerator isn't clean."

Do you value your reasons for staying small more than the light shining though the open door?

Forgive yourself.

Now is the only time you have to be whole.

Now is the sole moment that exists to live in the light of your true Self.
Perfection is not a prerequisite for anything but pain.

Please, oh please, don't continue to believe in your disbelief.

This is the day of your awakening.”
