“Exertion, or our effort through practice, generates the energy, which we need for the journey to penetrate to the core of our being.”
—Yogācārya BKS Iyengar, Light on Life p. 60
“...Prayer is a dipping of oneself toward the light, there is a consequence of attentiveness to the grass itself, and to the floating bird. I too leave the fret and enclosure of my own life. I too dip myself toward the immeasurable.”
—Mary Oliver, “Winter Hours”. .
