The Strength of Peace

Yoga gives firmness of body, clarity of intelligence, cleanness of heart. That is peace, and by looking at that peace, others will learn. Cultivate that supreme strength of peace, joy and delight. Then others, seeing the joy in you, will say, ‘I want to enjoy too.’ You are a true helper of society when the pupil comes to you, instead of you going to him. Then it is a pure teaching and a pure message.

~B.K.S. Iyengar from The Tree of Yoga


Often the messa…


Often the message of illness is to be quieter and spend some time just being in contact with our inner self. Illness often forces us to relax, let go of all our busyness and “efforting”, and drop into a deep, quiet level of consciousness where we can receive the nourishing energy that we need.

The healing always comes from within. When we allow ourselves quiet and inner contact regularly, we no longer need to get sick in order for our inner self to get attention.

Illness and “accidents” are messages that our concepts need changing or some inner problem needs to be resolved. Get as quiet as you can, listen for your inner voice and ask what your message is, or what it is that you need to understand in this situation.
