Meet together, talk together, let your minds apprehend alike; in like manner as the gods concurring accepted their portion of the worship.
Common be the prayer of these assembled, common be the acquirement, common the purpose, associated be the desire. I repeat for you a common prayer, I offer for you with a common oblation.
Common by your intention, common be the wishes of your heart, common be your thoughts, so that there be union among you.
Final Mantras of Rg Veda
"TO SEE THE WORLD, THINGS DANGEROUS TO COME TO, TO SEE BEHIND WALLS, TO DRAW CLOSER, TO FIND EACH OTHER AND TO FEEL. THAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LIFE."
I love beginning my day with my Ashtanga practice, it wakes my prana, humbles me, challenges me, and calms the waves of my mind to start the day with some form of clarity. Today my practice was dedicated to santosha and Ishwara pranidhana (contentment and complete resignation to the universal energy). It was a hard practice at times, but as always so worth it. What do you love to do in the morning to set up for a strong day?

“One day you will realize that everything in your life was self-chosen. Nothing was done to you. Life didn’t have any expectations of you, at all. There was nothing you were supposed to be, so there could never be any judgment or condemnation. You will realize that you didn’t need to be so hard on yourself or on others. You will realize that you were using freedom and unconditional love to choose limitation and judgment. You will realize that all the things you thought you had to do and the person you thought you had to be were self-created illusions. None of it was true. You were, are now and always will be completely free. Unless you don’t believe it.”
