Good Space.

Happy Earth day!
In yoga this week I have been asking my students to create an intention of "sukha," meaning "good space," in our world. By opening our hearts, breath, and minds to honor our earth, our neighbors, and all living things- we as a world wide community can create a heavenly space.

At the ending of class I have read a very fabulous quote by Ayn Rand, she says;

Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be waiting for us in our graves-
or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth.

So hear is to finding heaven and greatness within out lives and to you having a very lovely earth day.

lovely quote-- very buddhist in its sensibility. living in the now, present in the present, if you will. all important things to remember. and no matter how i try to practice those ideals, i find i ALWAYS need a reminder.
