What if

 

Art by Faith NoltonLife is moving faster, and I am too. These seem like good words to remember, when I begin to fret about less time on the mat. Yoga is how we live our lives, on or off the mat:

“What if religion was each other?

If our practice was our life?

If prayer was our words?

What if the temple was the Earth?

If forests were our church?

If holy water — the rivers, lakes, and oceans?

What if meditation was our relationships?

If the Teacher was life?

If wisdom was self-knowledge?

If love was the center of our being?”

– Ganga White
