Breath...not brain

It's about the breath, not the brain. A little yoga lesson - we add layer upon layer of thoughts to our brain, sometimes clouding what our perception of what reality truly is. But it's about the breath, not the brain, sort of like blowing away all of those layers of right, wrong, true, false, red, blue, me, you and getting to what's real. At least for one hour. Tonight. Really.

OK, enough with my bleary Tuesday night version, here's the official Wednesday morning email from yogi Mary quote:

Zen and the Art of Insight
When we realize that the way we are experiencing things
is mixed up with our own interpretations, 
we learn to refrain from taking our own representations for realities,
and thus reduce our susceptibility to compulsion, confusion, and obsession.
Within the calmness and stability this insight produces,
we can distinguish between subjective projections
and objective truths.
