Bright core of failure.


I’m meditating on abundance today, a practice that grows richer with the concept of flow.

The title of this post refers to a poem written by Rumi. Whether you’re flourishing in success or lamenting a failure, it is really all the “same glory,” as his words are translated. “You live in beautiful forms, and you are the energy that breaks form,” Rumi writes. “All light, neither this nor that.”

My yoga teacher Nancy Ayala

What a lovely expression of abundance, of flow. No matter what you face or how you get there, your personal power fills that place where experience lives with its light. It’s the epidemy of abundance, coming from a place of “full” … able to move in and out, back and forth, up and down, no matter what it looks like on the outside.

At the end of each yoga class, my teacher says, “My light sees your light.” I can’t help but feel full then, feel the abundance of life.
