Inspiration Is All Around

Someone wrote me a message a little ago and asked me a delicious question.  “ Diana, where do you get your inspiration?”  The answer came swiftly like any answer does that comes from a deep down knowing.  I didn’t have to think about.  I didn’t try to figure it out.  It came from deep down.  My answer, “Life inspires me.  All I have to do is open my eyes.”   What I didn’t say then but will now is that life is truly rich with magic and symbolism and meaningfor all of us when we pay attention.  Not just any kind of attention but something called wise attention.  We look through a lens that takes us underneath where the soul can rise up and become the lead.   We hear and see and feel what’s underneath, where the truth lives.   Something is the truth because it’s true always.  This yoga style asks us to do just that.  It asks us to go into what’s underneath the practice.  It asks us to go underneath our own masks and it asks us to become one with all of the elements, and all of ourself.   It asks us not to judge or push away any of our feelings and because of that It produces a healing that lets the willing live and breathe wholeness.  We become the earth, the water, the air, the fire and the ether.  We don't just say the prayer, we become the prayer.  And the prayer is always to let love lead us, and guide, inform us andto live through us.  We look deep down here and what we find here is gold.
