8 Quotes that Have Healed Me on My Yoga Journey

I love quotes. I love highlighting parts out of books to keep with me and look back upon. So here are 8 quotes that have served me on my yoga journey.

“As you practice, relax. Let events come and go. Let thoughts and feelings come and go. The more you relax, the more empty you become, and the more purpose can flow through you. Gradually, you’ll find that whatever needs to be done can be done through you, because you are not personally attached to it.” -Paul Ferrini

“We can learn to say to life, ‘It doesn’t matter what you bring today. If you bring something pleasant, I will flourish; if you bring something unpleasant, I will still flourish.’” –Eknath Easwaran

“The boundary to what we can accept is the boundary to our freedom.” -Tara Brach
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” -Dalai Lama

“Always, the solution is to embrace whatever comes to me and be with it until I understand it… Grace without surrender is not possible. Surrender says “yes.” It says “why not!” It says “trust this; something good will come of it.’ Surrender it the container into which grace flows.” -Paul Ferrini

“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.” -Ray Bradbury

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” -Rumi

“We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be acheived unless we first establish peace within our own minds.“ -Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
