“Here is, in truth, the whole secret of Yoga, the science of the soul. The active turnings, the strident vibrations, of selfishness, lust, and hate are to be stilled by meditation, by letting heart and mind dwell in spiritual life, by lifting up the heart to the strong, silent life above, which rests in the stillness of eternal love, and needs no harsh vibration to convince it of true being.” ~ Patanjali
We are living in a time of excess and extremes politically, economically, and socially. We crave a sense of semblance as we seek out a voice of unity. Discover how to find true peace and happiness within yourself.
This week, you'll be exploring Moderation, from Pantanjali's Yoga Sutras. This is part of a collection of meditation series focused on honoring the way you live your life. You'll focus on moderation to help cultivate a calmer, kinder approach to the problems in the world today.
This is part 6 of a 7-part Moderation meditation series with the 4th Yama Brahmacharya, episodes 2117-2123.
You're invited to take part in a Restraint Quest where every day this week you direct your thoughts, actions, and words in a positive way to support yourself, without relying on anything outside yourself to meet your needs.
