From: Yoga Script for Health and Joy. Link below
Much writing in the field of spirituality has to do with this notion of intentionality, focus and bringing a new vision to life. Wayne Dyer wrote often of ‘changing our script,’ and Sam Keen passionately noted that all of us are responsible for replacing iatrogenic (sickening) stories with healthy stories.
These writers are on to something important, and the wall provided me a chance to cast my motto, write my script, to form my new creation then and there. When it comes to yoga for health and joy, there are as many ways to write that motto and embody that script as there are people do it.
Mary Karr, author of The Liars’ Club, leaves no doubt that the work is worth it: “It doesn’t matter how bleak our lives are, we still fight for the light. I think that’s our divinity. We lean into love, even in the most hideous circumstances. We manage to hope.”
The truth we’ve come to know is that yoga opens the heart which allows for a reordering of life priorities and practices. By writing the new script, fighting for the light, happiness will take up residence in the “deep heart’s core” and therefore change the yogi. Happiness cannot settle in a heart filled with bitterness, but neither can it stay away from a true heart strumming the chords of gratitude.
