The yoga of a broken heart



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 you to set aside all others, placing your tenderness, your aloneness, and the scary places upon the altar in front of you. 

Allow yourself to be the great yogini of the broken heart, for it may be why you have come here—to feel the longing and the burning of this world, to hold and metabolize it inside the grace field of your own body, and to shower beings everywhere with your wisdom and your love. 

You are wedded to the unknown now, and you are willing to give your heart to others and to this world—to use even your sadness, your hopelessness, and your aloneness to connect with others, allowing yourself to be crafted as a wild translucent vessel of kindness.
