I first heard this story as a beginner in my yoga practice and have heard it numerous times since. I am not sure who originally wrote it, to whomever did I am grateful. It was a sweet gift to hear that perhaps the things that frustrated me the most about myself and others were the exact things that make us special and even precious. What if we all saw our “Flaws” as our brightest traits???? I must admit that it is not always easy to see these “bright traits” when I look in the mirror. This however, is one of the blessings that yoga has inspired in and for me. The ability and tenacity to see through the cracks and view the light in my heart.
Namaste’ The light in my heart bows in honor of the light in your heart.
