The most radical yogas of sadness and vulnerability

At times
a broken heart
will appear
as your teacher,
and you will be asked
to practice
the most radical yogas
of sadness and vulnerability.

At times you may see
that the yoga
of a broken heart
is the highest path for you
and will ask
that you set aside all others,
placing your tenderness,
your aloneness,
and the scary places
upon the altar
in front of you. 

This yoga
is no ordinary journey,
for it is the threshold
into the temple of love,
revealing the alive
and untamed reality
of your one wild heart.
