On the five yamas and resitance…
‘All five yamas play their part (in working with resistance) so, with satya, truthfulness, we are accepting that we have resistance, we are not in denial, and we are also accepting the calmness beneath the surface. Asteya; we are not stealing, so we are not trying to steal that we don’t feel when we have resistance, we are allowing calmness to come to us. Brahamacharya; as focus and commitment to being with and working with our resistance. And of course Aparigraha, freedom from hoarding, combined with Ahimsa so that we are not holding onto our resistance we can let it go.’

Quotes

It was on the afternoon of the Christmas Eve, and I was in Mrs. Prothero's garden, waiting for cats, with her son Jim. It was snowing. It was always snowing at Christmas. December, in my memory, is white as Lapland, though there were no reindeers. But there were cats. Patient, cold and callous, our hands wrapped in socks, we waited to snowball the cats.
