Practicing the yoga of wonder and delight is a great way to confront the challenges of these times. One technique a yogi practices is an ability to keep steadfast focus on the spacious field of awareness rather than getting caught up in opposite forces, dualism, and dynamics.
Today’s radiant words are from The Vijnana Bhairava Tantra.
Watch for a moment in which two opposing perceptions occur–wanting to go and not going, knowing and simultaneously not knowing. In that moment, let go of both perceptions and jump in to the interval between. Reality flashes forth. Your being is the field of awareness, the continuum in which the opposites play.
Today I encountered a moment where both joy and sadness occurred. I perceived both. I identified with neither. I jumped into the vast interval between them and felt utterly free to witness the play and rest in an expansive sense of awe.
May we witness the play of opposing forces that occur in every moment, but may we feel free to rest in ever-expanding consciousness and a sweet sense of awe. Sat Nam!

Over the 40 days, please take time to reflect on this question:
What would I think, write, and say if I knew that whatever I think, write, and say must happen?
