Not a Grief of Joy

This we have now
is not imagination.

This is not a grief or joy.

Not a judging state,
or an elation,
or sadness.

Those come and go. 
THIS is the PRESENCE... that doesn't.

From Essential Rumi
by Coleman Barks

Last night was Yoga Nidra. I love to offer this class.Yoga Nidra is the most profound way to connect with who you are that I have ever known. I have been practicing Yoga Nidra for about 15 years. 

What is Yoga Nidra? It is an ancient tantric practice of deep relaxation and meditation. Several techniques work together to take the practitioner through the different layers (koshas, in Sanskrit) of the body until the deepest core of your being is found. As you practice this, you begin to let go of all the identities you think you are and come into your true nature. 

Here is the place of great healing; the place of wholeness. This is who you truly are ~ the PRESENCE that is always here.
