Food for Thought

4:23

Protect Yo Heart Day is a community art event by New York artist UnCutt Art , that takes place on April 23rd. The date, 4/23, is a reference to Proverb 4:23 -  “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

UnCutt refers to his project as a day of self-love and self-appreciation. The street artist sees it as a reminder to reset and recenter.

I have recently noticed PYH stencils in my neighborhood so UnCutt or another artist decided to spread the message before April.

stillness

Larry kept repeating "stillness is your power" while teaching class, especially between the postures...."stillness is your power...calm, focused, centered, yeah?"

I am focused on my stillness and my yoga asana practice certainly helps me. Everything I need is in my breath so today I will surrender to my breath, one breath at a time. 

espíritu libre

Let go of what does not serve you. 

I have heard this often over the years and right now I am letting go of an old fear that I have held on to for too long. I am walking through something that I have always avoided and it does not feel good, but I know I have to walk through this fear in order to let it go.

Keeping this spirit free sometimes requires work, however, my spirit is worth it.
