I have become increasingly awere of the fragility and shortness of life as I have grown older. More and more, acutely aware of the preciousness of each moment and our ability to connect with the forces so much greater than our own. The strongest force in the universe. like a band of steel that stretches through time and across any distance, is the force of love.
Way beyond asana and pranayama, time spent in meditation and prayer, my teaching and parenting, is this incredibly powerful force we call love. When I remember this my heart feels more open and accepting and I know that I have with me the ability to love and to be loved in return. It is a wonderful feeling.
It is this that we all journey towards throughout our lives and hopefully through patience and acceptance this powerful force of love is there for all of us whatever name we choose to give it.
