Day 12 – Peace

Can we get to the place where there is no place to get?

– Michael Stone

There’s a saying in the yoga studio

Find your breath

or it’s alternative

Come back to the breath

Not catch your breath but find your breath

Catch – seize or capture

Find – discover or recognize

A yogi once told me that a successful hour in the studio was not one where you mastered the pose but rather if you stayed with your Ujjayi breath.

There’s a similar concept in our spiritual walk that can be found in Philippians 4:6-7…

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

A successful hour could be defined as one where we stayed with God’s grace and peace.

Until tomorrow,
