monday moment of zen

“yoga is the human quest for remembering our true nature, our deepest selves. since the dawn of recorded time human beings have sought to transcend the human condition, to go beyond ordinary consciousness. basic questions such as who am i? and why am i here? have driven mankind’s spiritual pursuits for millenia. in every human heart lies a deep longing to connect to something bigger than oneself, to find a sense of belonging and meaning to life. at the core of this longing is a basic human desire for happiness that transcends culture and time. every human being wants to find happiness.”

~From Hatha Yoga Illustrated by Martin Kirk, Brooke Boon, and Daniel DiTuro

melita, that is so true. On some level these questions are what drive us all. We think we are so different but at the heart of it, we are very similar.
