Take others into your heart, not into your self-esteem.
The part of me that is connected to others and to the divine speaks directly to my mind. It informs me of who I am, where I am, and Who is with me. The ego* tries to find some way to turn all situations into praise for itself, including problems and failures. But true self-esteem is build and sustained through connection with our Source. -Prather

Yoga has many meanings. “One is the union of the winds within our inner body. We unite these winds with our yoga, when we think and understand. The winds will sing within us, the very first words of all. They will flow free, and force us to dance, and to run to heal others.” (The Essential Yoga Sutra)Read more
