Utilizing the Fire
“Tapas" is a Sanskrit term that can be translated as "discipline," "austerity," or "burning enthusiasm." It refers to the practice of self-discipline and the cultivation of inner strength and determination.
Tapas can manifest in various ways within the practice of yoga. It involves engaging in consistent and dedicated practice, pushing oneself beyond comfort zones, and embracing challenges on the mat. This might mean holding challenging poses for longer durations, exploring advanced postures, or maintaining a steady breath even when faced with difficulties.
Beyond the physical aspect, tapas extends to other areas of life as well. It encourages individuals to develop discipline in their thoughts, speech, and actions. It involves making conscious choices that align with one's values and goals, even when faced with temptations or distractions. Tapas can also involve adopting healthy lifestyle habits, such as maintaining a balanced diet, getting sufficient rest, and cultivating positive relationships.
The practice of tapas is believed to purify the body and mind, cultivating focus, resilience, and self-control. It helps to overcome obstacles, build character, and enhance personal growth. Ultimately, tapas is about harnessing inner fire and channeling it towards self-improvement and spiritual evolution.

March 15 Quotes from Our Sunday Conference
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.
When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl
This is the time to take the practice off our mats and into our lives.
"We are the ones we are waiting for." ~Hopi prayer
