Fearlessness Produces Tenderness

Hello my Sat am yogis!

I love this quote about what “fearlessness” means. Thought I’d share it with you.

Real fearlessness is the product of tenderness. It comes from letting the world tickle your heart, your raw and beautiful heart. You are willing to open up, without resistance or shyness, and face the world. You are willing to share your heart with others.

Chogyam Trungpa

Hope to see you this Saturday!

Namaste,

Augusta

Habits are Like Silken Threads

Dear Sat am yogis,

A thought to share:

It is said that, first you make your habits, then your habits make you.

Many of our habits are behavioral, but often our habits are emotional.  We react without taking the time or energy to choose our response.  We get tired of our lives feeling so routine, and then put so much effort into NOT breaking the routine. There is a Spanish proverb that says:Habits at first are like silken threads. Then they become cables and run our lives. Are there any cables you need to investigate? Is there one small change you could introduce into your routine that would open a space for change? Just a thought…

Hope to see you this Saturday!

Namaste,

Augusta
