As I've previously mentioned - this year's calendar is a yoking together of all of my daily practices - yoga..photography and writing. Each month includes one of my Muse-In-You-Yogi photos and an accompanying yoga sutra.
'Unexcelled happiness comes from the practice of contentment.'
As we practice quiet and center and connecting with our inner selves instead of the external objects that surround us...we begin the cultivation of gratitude for all we have within us. Instead of indentifying with our goals...our desires and wants - we learn to love and accept who-ever....what-ever...where - ever we might find ourselves in this moment.
With that acceptance - comes stillness and peace...and 'santosha' - the sanskrit word for true contentment ...happiness and joy.
