" You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down ."
- Toni Morrison, Song Solomon (1931-2019)

Earlier this year, I referenced Toni Morrison in one of our newsletters. Her words and her stories have offered me countless lessons throughout the years and once again, in honor of her life, I find myself turning to her wisdom. (Thank you, Alicia, for pulling this one out!) 

Last month we focused on the  sutras and, in many ways, this quote from the novel  Song of Solomon carries a similar message to  Sutra 1.1 – in any moment we can begin again, as many times as necessary. We can let go of what holds us back any time we choose – we can shed the layers, change the stories we tell ourselves, and release what no longer serves. This is necessary for our freedom and for our ability to fly. 

2019 has been a challenging year for many of us, myself included. I know, though, that my work is to keep letting go of what weighs me down, no matter the challenges that cross my path.

Cheers to path of flight, yogis!
