The Inner Sun

Jan 21, 2016

 

Use your own light and return to the source of light. This is called practicing eternity.

Lao Tzu

 

This Brazilian Melon is one of the more interesting gifts I’ve received as a teacher. A student in a recent retreat gave it to me as a symbol of the lightness she felt in the days following our time together. For me, it was a sweet reminder of the inner sun that yoga reveals within us.

This is the Prana Shakti. Like a sun inside our selves, it is the source energy that animates our bodies, enlivens our senses and powers our minds.

It's exciting to notice the ways practice affects our state. The expansion of Prana we experience through practice brightens our interior being with greater vitality and magnifies our consciousness. Invariably, yet mysteriously, it fosters a sense of peace and lightheartedness and encourages a broader, wiser perspective on our lives.
