Opening the Heart

Patanjali Sutra related to Calming the Mind: 
The Heart meditation we will be practising in the Yogawise Circle focuses on cultivating
four important attitudes outlined in this Sutra: 
1. an attitude of friendliness towards those who are happy;
2. compassion towards the unhappy;
3.  delight and joy for the virtuous
 4.  an indifference to those who do wrong.
 Patanjali also says that concentrating on our inner light steadies the mind. Our Eternal Self can be found  in  the brilliant inner light radiating from the heart Chakra, the energy centre of our hearts. 
 Seeing that supreme light within ourselves takes us beyond all anxieties, fear and worry

Olympics London 2012

Our beautiful Bushy Park welcomes the cyclists after their trek through the streets of London and past our riverside in Richmond and Twickenham.        The Diana Fountain shone in gold and the Goddess truly blessed them all in their endeavour to strive for perfection!
Michelle Obama gave a truly inspiring welcome to the USA team and her words must have spurred on the little Gabrielle (another angel!) USA gymnast who won Gold. 
I love the feeling of all the nations here together playing and sharing with each other as well as competing.
All the little things that go astray are not as important as this opportunity for all of us to see the things which we share in common rather than our differences.  Perhaps the day will come when there will be one flag and one anthem and one team?    WE ARE ONE!
