Mitra Somerville and Avi Gordon discuss how we find peace, and the practical advantages that come from it.
Quotes From the Interview:
* Fortunately in yoga there's a lot of different techniques, and the more techniques that we know about and the more that we practice, then we can choose the right technique at the right moment.
* I like to get peace and listen to my inner guidance and just follow that, and let that deeper spirit work through me and let the divine plan work through me rather than my own plan."
* What actually happens is when we're serviceful and giving, the mind gets really quiet, and that is the reason we start to feel really good. It's because the mind just relaxes - there's no conflict or second guessing like 'was that a good bargain?'
* If we're connected to our peace, we can keep everything in perspective, and then if we don't get what we really wanted, "ok, well, maybe something better's coming but it doesn't really matter because I feel content.
