Only love can bring unity and remove the separation between all living beings.
— Swami Kripalu

This weekend, I spent 4 days at Kripalu center, where I completed my yoga teacher training, to participate in an energy intensive retreat led by two Kripalu master teachers, Sudhir and Shobhan.   I had many insights which I might ultimately share here, but the one I would like to focus on most is Love.  When I arrived, I was reminded of many hours of love and joy that I had spent in that special place.  First, multiple times with friends, recharging from long hours of mothering, then, the great love that my YTT sisters and brothers shared.  However, it was the rich practice, including social silence, that reminded me once again of the deep universal love which is our source.  Going through our days, reading the news, getting caught in story after story, it is easy to forget our connection to this truth.  I was certainly grateful to be emphatically reminded.

How would it be for you today to see everyone you meet through the lens of a loving heart?
