Stillness and Flow

As I sat in meditation this morning, I got this message:

Be both the rock and the water rushing past.

Be still, patient, steadfast. 

Anchor yourself in your Self.

Feel and witness the world unfold around you.

And, at the same time, flow.

Change in every moment. 

Delight in the swift current and the movement of life.

Be both the rock and the river, the shore and the ocean.

To me, Anusara yoga teaches this so clearly.

Steadfast and spacious, strong and sensitive. Yoga is both the path beneath your feet and the way you choose to walk, dance, meander, and otherwise be human along the way.

And, when all else fails, breathe and move—roll out your mat and embody the qualities you seek.
