Again I sit to write and study the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali  by Sri Swami Satchidananda.  Today I am reminded of the purpose of yoga.  It’s so much more that the physical postures.  Yoga invites us to find a way to quiet the mind and live in peace using the body and the breath as tools to achieve those goals.  Each time I sit to read and study I am given the opportunity to learn to incorporate practices into my daily life that will bring me peace.  Today what I am finding in 1:3 is that it is important to be acting from my heart, not influenced by ego or driven by my senses, I can live without expectations, and with compassion, kindness, generosity of Spirit, joy and peace of mind.  This is yoga.  This is the reason that each morning I awake to read, write, to move and breathe, to let go and embrace whatever the Universe brings me today.
