Art-filled Friday (and a little yoga practice)
From the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali:
1.30 - Perception of our true nature is often obscured by physical, mental, and emotional imbalances.
1.31 - These imbalances can be prevented from engaging by developing loyalty to a sacred practice.
1.34 - Slow, easeful exhalations can be used to restore and preserve balance.
1.35 - Or engage the focus on an inspiring object.
1.39 Or dedicate yourself to anything that elevate and embraces your heart.
(Translation by Niscala Joy Devi, The Secret Power of Yoga)
Here is my interpretation of these sutras. I can honestly say, I am feeling pretty centered and inspired right now, so I would highly recommend these practices. Enjoy!
My sacred practice:
An inspiring object:
What captures and embraces my heart:
What elevates my heart and spirit:
How do you plan to find balance and joy this weekend?
