A student once asked the guru for some advise:
"As a big yogi to a little yogi do you have any advise for me?.
"Yes" he replied.
"Each morning wake up, do as much yoga as you want. Maybe you'll eat, maybe you'll fast, maybe you'll sleep. The next morning wake up, do as much yoga as you want. Maybe you'll eat, maybe you'll fast, maybe you'll sleep. Practice yoga and all is coming"
The stunning wisdom from Guruji K. Pattabhi Jois as told by David Williams
... and all is coming.
There is a place in each of us that aches for clarity, to be awake and alert to being solid about who we are and what our purpose is. ANANDA is a sanskrit word meaning Bliss. It is a word that could possibly define the meaning of Yoga, although it doesn't mean Bliss in the sense of intense happiness. Instead, ANANDA is an experience that is neither happiness nor a place devoid of suffering. ANANDA is self realization. From this place of Bliss we get to glimpse into our truth. It requires devoted practice (Abhyasa), and a commitment to staying focused and letting go of what is not serving our highest good (Vairagya). "Practice and all is coming..." perhaps part of that 'all' is that place were we emerge calm and deeply refreshed. The challenge is remaining established in this state.
