Comparison of humans to sculptures from my newest “train read” – “Living your Yoga” by Judith Lasater; 
“When carving a stone, the sculptor removes everything that is not the statue. She does not add anything to create it, except the willingness to do the work. The art of revealing beauty lies in removing what conceals it. The wholeness exists within us, it is up to us to chisel away everything that is not essence, not Self.”
I realize that life is a work in progress, a practice, a lesson, a journey, and most importantly a choice. We always have a choice of the way that we choose to live our lives. I understand practicing “a state of yoga” will not change an aching back, getting sick, losing a loved one, not getting what I want but I do know that it provides me with the assistance to a wholesome and mindful life.
 Take a moment to become mindful of the way that you are living.
