dwelling in the light

Quote

IMG_0325

“We are to think of ourselves as immortals, dwelling in the light, encompassed and sustained by spiritual powers.  The steady effort to hold this thought will awaken dormant and unrealized powers, which will unveil to us the nearness of the eternal.”                           – Charles Johnston 

This says it all: the life of a yogi is sustained and encompassed by Light.  The holiday season begs me to dedicate (even a few) minutes of silence in nearness to the Eternal. It hardly matters if you are religious, if you are non-religious, if you have never practiced yoga, or if you practice every day: the Eternal is always near. During the holidays, I am very aware of the mystic, magical quality of life.  Amid the twinkle lights and the holiday decorations, every moment becomes magical.  The Eternal is near to us in the effervescent joys, the promises of love, and the moments of witnessed compassion.

Yogi’s are born mystics and born seekers: always looking for a way to discover more light and joy in this world.  Mysticism is the belief that union with the Absolute may be attained through contemplation and self-surrender. It is the belief that the Eternal is near enough to touch.  It is the Light. May you dwell in the Light this Holiday Season.
