Oh the Places You’ll Go

And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance

you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.

There are some, down the road between hither and yon,

that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.

But on you will go

though the weather be foul

On you will go

though your enemies prowl

On you will go

though the Hakken-Kraks howl

Onward up many

a frightening creek,

though your arms may get sore

and your sneakers may leak.

On and on you will hike

and I know you’ll hike far

and face up to your problems

whatever they are.

You’ll get mixed up, of course,

as you already know.

You’ll get mixed up

with many strange birds as you go.

So be sure when you step.

Step with care and great tact

and remember that Life’s

a Great Balancing Act.

Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.

And never mix up your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?

Yes! You will, indeed!

(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

Yogic Transformation

Yoga is not meant to serve as an escape from your life. If anything, it is an invitation to dive deeper; to get really up close and personal with all your flaws, your habits, your beliefs, your issues, your current life circumstances, and ask yourself: is this really working for me? If the answer is no, yoga will give you the courage to get really honest with yourself and change what isn’t working. It probably won’t be easy, it definitely won’t be pretty, but will it be worth it? Hell. Yes.

There is no greater or more miraculous mode of transformation that the one that comes from deep within the very core of your being. This small voice may start as a quiet, nagging whisper, but over time, and with consistent, dedicated practice, it will manifest itself into a deafening roar so loud that you have no choice but to listen, to challenge yourself, to change, and eventually find true freedom.
