Loneliness vs Solitude

no one likes loneliness
it sounds like what it is
none are happy there
none are happy where
no friend comes
but solitude
beautiful solitude
it’s a place
of sweet solace
you go there by choice
to hear yourself think
enjoy your own thoughts
and appreciate who you are
visit there often friend
live there even when
in a crowded room
your place
of solitude.


Daughters of the King Daily Devotionals


  


Yoga is not a workout, it is a work in. In the Tao Te Ching, we read that the only real movement is return. 

This is the point of spiritual practice: to make us teachable, to open our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know, and be who we already are.
