Then the Yoga teacher training assignment came forth and said.... Speak to us of Yoga.
And the student answered ,saying: Yoga is a freedom song,
But .....it is not freedom,It is a blossoming of ones self
But... it is not the fruit
It is a depth calling unto a height,
But.... it is not the deep nor the high
It is the confined taking wing
But.... it is not a space encompassed
Yes,In very truth it is a freedom song
The human body knows it's yearnings,and its rightful need,and will not be decieved.
And my body is the harp of my soul,
And it is mine to bring forth sweet music
from it ,or confused sounds
I go to my field and my garden
And have learned that it is the joy of the bee to gather honey from the flowers
But it is also the joy of the flowers to yield its honey to the bee
As a yoga student growing in her practise, I am not unlike the flower and the bee--
