So, I’m not the biggest fan of Yoga Journal (commercialization of yoga, lots of thin white women, the usual issues I have with most mainstream magazines), but I’ve happened to come by a free subscription, so I enjoy what I can of it.
They do have some gorgeous images and lovely quotes, like this one that I found:
“What if religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water–the rivers, lakes, and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being.”
– Ganga White, founder of the White Lotus Foundation
This is perfect. This is exactly how I feel. This is why I can’t take sides in the God vs. no God dichotomy, or even the religious vs. spiritual one–my beliefs are in a different place altogether.
