The GOOD Life

Virtue~ means not only moral merit but also, valor, intrinsic quality, and power

In yogic terms the good life is one dedicated to that which is good and virtuous. And as a yogi or yogini we are expected to live the good yoga life 24/7 and many Yoga classics (*cough-ahem* like the Bhagavad-Gita) offer some excellent guidelines. Here’s a good one: The key in all things is balance. We must bring harmony to whatever we do, say, and think.

No one said living the good life would be easy and that you’d get it right every time. Most Western practitioners do Yoga once or twice a week, by which they mean practicing postures, deep breathing, and maybe meditation. But the everyday cultivation of Yoga calls for discipline relative to the body, mind, and speech.

If you want the surroundings to be of best use to you, be of best use to your surroundings. If you want you house to give you joy and comfort, be joyful in it, bring to it beautiful things. If you project love to the plants in your garden, they will reward you with beautiful flowers to give you joy. If you cultivate within yourself a natural state of kindness, compassion, love, and forgiveness, you will receive a thousandfold reward from the surroundings.

-Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
