Peaceful Yoga by Sarah

Yoga is the practice of quieting the mind.  ~Patanjali, translated from Sanskrit

And Eternity in an hour."

  “When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” -Pantanjali

Yes, it's one of the basic truths of the physical uniferse, Sprocket. Things don't disappear. They just change, and change, and change again.
- Doc, from Fraggle Rock

I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for oneself, one's own family or nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace.

-H.H. The Dalai Lama

You cannot do yoga.  Yoga is your natural state.  What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state. 
~Sharon Gannon

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
– Buddha

When all the senses are stilled, when the mind is at rest, when the intellect wavers not--then, say the wise, is reached the highest state.
This calm of the senses and the mind has been defined as yoga. He who
attains it is freed from delusion.
-Katha Upanishad 2.6.10-11

Fear makes strangers of people who would be friends.
- Shirley Maclaine

Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit.

 You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.
-Mr. Yoga

 Your life is your garden, your thoughts are your seeds. If your life isn't awesome, you've been watering the weeds.

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
~Chinese Proverb

Every thing there is but lovin' leaves a rust on your old soul

A jug fills drop by drop. - Buddha

It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
—Albert Einstein

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
-Mother Teresa

 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, and 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 were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It is not in just some of us; it is in everyone.

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.

- Marianne Williamson
