Yoga In The News

My mind's thresholds of what is possible have been completely blown away, and the limits have not settled yet, will they ever? But, I still have my center, and it's a nice place to begin again.

Needs vs Wants

Through challenging our consumptive ways, we gain clearer perspective on our needs vs. wants. Our needs are mostly simple. It's our unchecked wants that get us into trouble, setting ourselves up for Duhka, or suffering. Was it needs or wants that crashed the economy?
