Yogis, doesn’t our country just do September spectacularly well. Drink in these wonderful September days. Be enthusiastic about September. In class this week we’ve been talking about the success of our yoga not lying in our ability to perform postures, but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationship. Yogis tend to have a positive ‘ripple’ effect in the world. And this week we’re rippling out our enthusiasm for autumn.
Remember that the word the word ‘enthusiast’ originates from a Greek word meaning ‘possessed by God’s essence’.
Little apples of autumnal poetry to share . . .
“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.” – John Donne, 1572 – 1631
“By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer’s best of weather And autumn’s best of cheer.” – Helen Hunt Jackson, September, 1830-1885
