Even though they dwelled in austere, even harsh places, the great yogis of history were highly developed internally;
they were constantly enjoying every drop of their living experience.
They rejoiced in the sounds they heard,
the flavors they tasted,
the odors they smelled,
the textures they touched,
and the light they perceived.
They were artists without a canvas;
their way of being in the world was their masterpiece,
and even their most ordinary gestures and expressions could conduct creativity.
As we practice Kum Nye dancing,
we can do this in our own ways.
