When life has served up a big dose of crazy and chaotic, the first thing I start looking for is a little bit of peace.
More often than not, I know the trial is going to stick around for awhile- and I’ve definitely learned that there is no real value in pushing the concerns away.. So instead of fighting the crazy or bemoaning the chaos, I look for places to settle into a little bit of peace while I wait, watch, and learn from whatever storm has come my way.
When I started teaching yoga, it was the little nuggets of peaceful perspective that I left with my classes that seemed to make the biggest impact in their lives and mine. When our family has been hit with whirlwinds of change or upheaval, it has been simple and subtle insights of wisdom and hope that seem to turn my mountains into tiny little molehills.
I hope that the links and thought that you’ll find on this page can offer each of us a little bit of the peace that we look for, not only during our most challenging moments, but also in the middle of our good days. I hope that the words you’ll find here will stick with you long after our time together is complete. And I hope, when you meet someone on your own personal journey who needs a little peaceful perspective, that these words will come into your heart as your gift of warmth during their time of chill. John Lennon has been quoted saying:
