The darkness of the whole world cannot swallow the glowing of a candle.
Like Hanukah, the journey of yoga is fundamentally a celebration of light. Yoga brings us in touch with the auspicious and luminous space of the heart. Just as the same electricity shines through myriad forms of light and power, so the sages say, there is one source, one light that shines through all manifest forms.
Practice reveals this source place, this inner light. It glows with quiet joy, strength and, most essentially, love. We can allow it to light our way through times of darkness, struggle and challenge.
Like candles on the menorah, may the promise of the season illuminate your days with hope and comfort.
Thanks to Ondine and Tasha for making this menorah.
