Turning within is called Yoga.
Sunday morning class has spurred some rich discussions lately on ideas like:
- The act teaches you the meaning of the act.
- Something that is important can be fun (we don’t generally believe this, or we believe the opposite).
- The bliss of consciousness is attained through expansion of the center.
Many of you have asked about the OnBeing talks or the books from where much of this inspiration comes.
Here are a few of my favs:
Adele Diamond – The Science of Attention
Paulo Coelho – The Alchemy of Pilgrimage
Marie Howe – The Poetry of Ordinary Time
And my current Yoga text passion is The Splendor of Recognition by Swāmī Shāntānanda. The Bliss of remembering or recognizing what we already know but so easily forget.
Always love to hear about your inspiration sources.
