LIVING BEAUTIFULLY WITH UNCERTAINTY AND CHANGE
by Pema Chodron
The teachings here provide a treasure trove of wisdom for learning to step right into the unknown, to completely and fearlessly embrace the groundlessness of being human. When we do, we begin to see not only how much better it feels to live an openhearted life, but we find that we begin to naturally and more effectively reach out to help and heal all those around us.
THE POWER OF NOW
by Eckhart Tolle
From the very first page of Eckhart Tolle's extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the indestructible essence of our Being, “The eternal, ever present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.”
by Kahlil Gibran
Almustafa, the chosen and the beloved, who was a dawn unto his own day, had waited twelve years in the city of Orphalese for his ship that was to return and bear him back to the isle of his birth. The gates of his heart were flung open, and his joy ew far over the sea. And he closed his eyes and prayed in the silences of his soul.

LIGHT ON YOGA
