“A wise man I met in India put it to me this way: You’re living on a mountain of gold and you don’t realize it. Every time it rains, the dirt and muck are washed away and the gold is revealed. And you run out into the rain, scooping up fistfuls of gold and dancing around. But you mistakenly think that the rain is bringing the gold, so you worship the rain, and you make sacrifices with your schedule to please the rain. When there’s a drought, you become poor, starve, and bemoan the absence of the rain. But the gold is always there, just beneath the surface, and the rain has simply been revealing it. If you’d just dust off the mountain the slightest bit, you’d see it for what it is. Scratch the surface! Look deeper! There’s no need to rely on the rain to reveal your happiness.” - Happy Yoga: 7 Reasons Why There’s Nothing to Worry About by Steve Ross
Join Lisa and your fellow TS yogis this coming Sunday, 2/10, for a discussion of Happy Yoga by Steve Ross.
TSA’s book club will be meeting at 7:30pm in the Tea Lounge (at our Arlington studio) to enjoy tea and cookies, lively conversation, and to learn more about the “7 reasons why there’s nothing to worry about.”
Hope to see you there!
