Heart Openers with Mantra

March 23, 2019

This week we practiced heart openers with mantra. Mantra means a vehicle for the mind. It is a word or phrase that can soothe the mind and help the mind focus. The heart is usually associated with concepts of love, compassion & forgiveness. One definition of love is a universal identification with all beings, not just one. When you experience that kind of love … you’ve reached yoga :)

ACT GREAT

What is the key

To untie the knot of your mind's suffering?

What 

Is the esoteric secret

To slay the crazed one whom each of us

Did wed

And who can ruin

Our heart's and eye's exquisite tender

Landscape?

Hafiz has found

Two emerald words that

Restored

Me

That I now cling to as I would sacred

Tresses of my Beloved's 

Hair:

Act great.

My dear, always act great.

What is the key 

To untie the knot of the mind's suffering?

Benevolent thought, sound

And movement.

~ Hafiz
