Weekly Inspiration:
To emanate consciously from your heart, rays of peace into the world around you.
From The Secrets of Bringing Peace on Earth by J. Donald Walters (Swami Kriyananda)

"When you practice the hatha yoga postures, remember that you are not practicing merely a system of calisthenics. You are practicing what might be called meditation in action, movement meditation, as if you were doing almost a kind of spiritual dance. Remember, this is not sports. You don't jump into a pose and jump out of it. The way you get into and out of a pose is almost as important as the pose itself. It helps to create a mood, a state of consciousness. Remember that your state of consciousness while doing the poses is a very, very important part of the poses. Because finally speaking, these poses are intended to change your whole being. And that being is a radiation outward from within. What you are within, that you will be without."
