Anne Clendening
“Sometimes, you can learn something completely mind-blowing in yoga and then totally forget about it the minute you need it the most. Or just kind of choose to forget it. 'I don't need no philosophy, I need fixing.' Which isn't to say nothing ever goes wrong, because it does; or that they're aren't parts of you that you just can't bring yourself to accept or maybe even detest at times (which I know is a strong word but it does apply), because I'm sure there are; or that there's no such thing as catastrophe, because there is. Oh my god, there is. And sometimes all you want to do is fix it.”

Abhijit Naskar
“Real karma or real human duty is the act that is carried out with the genuine hope of bringing a change outside of us – in the world, not in anticipation of reward. And that very act of pure conscience is karma, morality, religion, godliness, spirituality all together. These are all varied terms for the one and the same thing, that is being a conscientious human being. In short, to be a conscientious human is real karma – it is real spirituality – it is real religion.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“The Sanskrit term “Karma” simply refers to “duty”, that is, your everyday duty as a human being. And this duty has no mystical intervention in it – it has no divine law that can determine a certain reward in return. It’s plain ordinary everyday human action.”
Abhijit Naskar

“How did I get IT? Well, I had the balls enough to cry, howl and beg for 'It'. This is the only Way. Get it!”
Fakeer Ishavardas

“In this dream I was a songwriter and an artist.
I fell madly in love with you.

Do you remember how hard it was?
What we went through to find one another?

I am always so reluctant to do this over and over again.
There is always that fear that I won't find you.

Though I always trust the process,
still there are powerful illusions in this world.
But none could keep me from you.

At times I feel like I dug through stone with my bare hands to find you.
Other times I laugh at how perfect it all is, and at the worry
that I may never lay eyes on you again.

How foolish.

You can’t separate water from rain.”
The Infinite Spark of Being

Darren Main
“Apathy is the bushel basket under which the ego hides its fear of being powerless. It is easier to become apathetic when there are no words or actions sufficient to comfort a wounded body, a grieving heart, or a
shattered community. And so we look away and avoid awkward conversations under the guise that we don’t want to upset others. Yet, the most powerful posture for a healer to take is that of the witness. To stand and
witness a person or community devastated by suffering, and to let them know that while they suffer they have a hand to hold, offers the most potent medicine of all—compassion.”

“Meditation is your time-out with yourself. It isn’t a house party, and there is no law saying how you must feel. Keep a journal and write down how you feel before and after each meditation session. Maintain a beginner’s mind and, most importantly, connect with other like-minded people who can embrace, nourish, and support you during your practice and daily life.”

Being present and aware of your posture, your thoughts, and your breath on a regular basis during your day are as vital as knowing your shoe size.”

“Despite an ever increasing diversity when it comes to yoga brands, there are only four major paths in yoga and they have the same end goal; enlightenment. The end goal can be likened to the top of a pyramid. Even though people may start climbing the pyramid from different sides, at the end they will reach the same goal and thusly achieve unity.”
Gudjon Bergmann
