It all began...

Prayer begins at the edge of emptiness--Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

A few months ago, when I was in the midst of dramatic change and emotional upheaval, I stood at this edge and indeed, prayer began.

Not only did prayer begin for me, my practice really began. The commitment to and reliance on my path of yoga--more than mere movements.

Also, faith began--not faith in an absolute, supreme being or entity but faith in me. I was developing faith in my practice, faith that it would balance me and sustain me during my travails.

Because I opened, because I called out and stepped forth in all began.
