“Through practice, I’ve come to see that the deepest source of my misery is not wanting things to be the way they are. Not wanting myself to be the way I am. Not wanting the world to be the way it is. Not wanting others to be the way they are. Whenever I’m suffering, I find this ‘war with reality’ to be at the heart of the problem.”

Stephen Cope


Greetings dear yoga students,

Welcome to another glorious day. As you meander through your daily round, think about something you may be “at war” with in your own life. Living life on life’s terms is not an endeavor for the faint hearted. As humans, we seem to always want to fix things or create fantasies and repeat mantras like; “if only things were different then I could be happy”. True inner contentment only comes from within. We must make the decision to be happy now. Now is all we have. This moment, this day, this family, this body, this home, this job, this stretch of 24 hours to live our life. Cultivate acceptance with whatever or whoever is in your life today. Be the one that brings serenity to your interactions and act with your heart on situations that seem to baffle you. Try and do more reflection that reaction and you may find, things are exactly as they should be. Relax, let go and focus today on being at peace with reality. The war within quiets when you cultivate Santosha – contentment; allow yourself to bloom wherever you are planted, within whatever circumstances life finds you.
