Who Am I Becoming Through This Practice?
" The world is not in dire need of people who can be in two places at one time or who can suspend themselves in hyperconscious states while living in a cave. But the world is in terrible need of greater kindness, generosity, and wisdom."
" Yet we need not be great yogic scholars to understand the spirit of this practice. We need not learn Sanskrit or recite the list of yamas and niyamas, although it can be helpful to give each other careful thought and regular attention. Rather, we can regularly ask ourselves these questions: Who am I becoming through this practice? Am I becoming the world in which I wish to live?"
