Pincha Mayurasana. Marrakech, Morocco. December 2012
When I started the practice of Yoga 11 years ago, demonstrations of advanced asana used to inspire awe in me. Now, what inspires me are demonstrations of advanced compassion and advanced wisdom. Yet, to be able to perceive such qualities often requires a more skillful watcher. This new year I renew my vow:
I vow to continue my daily work to have my words, my thoughts, and my actions be a reflection of my unfolding wisdom and may they hold as much focus and grace as a seemingly effortless asana.
