...11.18.12...
















according to yoga,
our perception is made up of two elements:
purusa and prakriti.
purusa is our pure internal consciousness,
the part of ourselves that "watches"all our actions,
while prakriti is everything external:
our bodies, matter, and the universe itself.
we see the truth clearly with our purusa,
but it's clouded by habit and false understanding,
and we confuse our true "selves" with external things,
such as our bodies or possessions. 
only the constant practice of awareness can 
separate purusa and prakriti,
and help us toward clear thinking.

what a difference.
24 hours can make.
yesterday.
fog and frost.
today sunshine.
sometimes.
if we just give ourselves.
24 hours.
for that new day to dawn.
what was "foggy"yesterday.
will be clear today.
and today.
you are ready to take on anything.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

Gorgeous photos. I especially like the foggy ones. They're very mysterious.

And yes, a single day can make all the difference in the world.
