To be in a state of flow is to be lost in time, to be totally absorbed in the moment, to be fully connected to what you are doing. Where time stops, where all sense of self, all expectations fall away. Where breath and movement merge into a beautiful dance, like day and night, sun and moon. You are aware, fully alert, but in that state of alertness where is complete relaxation.

We enter into yoga postures not to complete some perfected image of gesture, but rather to wake up the intelligent union of mind, body and heart.

Michael Stone, Practice Maps of Great Yogis

When we accept what is in this very moment, without pushing or pulling, when there is no running after or running away, we find in our practice a level of deep acceptance and peace.
