Peace. Where is it? Lift the veil.
A very brief 4 minute practice into peace
When I catch myself caught in a whirlwind of emotion and thought, thought and emotion, I do not always apply the medicine. I admit, I can be lazy. Yet, how foolish to allow myself to be led by the wild, albeit creative, aspect of mind when sometimes all it takes is a few quick minutes of stopping, stilling the body, and anchoring the mind, either with breath or mantra, to quickly rediscover my peace.
For our recording this Sunday, I am applying a quote written by someone who many consider to be the father of modern yoga, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. Tirumalai Krishnamacharya was born in 1888 and passed away in 1889, at the age of 101. He was a Vedic scholar and life-long practitioner of yoga, as was also known as a healer.
A great yogi, Krishnamacharya was a guru, with his most well known students influencing much of the yoga that we are familiar with in the West. You may know of Krishnamacharya’s students, which include his son Desikachar, Pattabhi Jois the founder of Asthanga yoga, BKS Iyengar, and Indra Devi.
As we practice with the short audio below, let us remind ourselves peace is always with us, though so often we do not feel its warmth. Because we do not create this peace, it is liberating to realize our work is to reveal what already exists within our awareness.
I invite you to join me for a brief practice found below.
“Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God.”
