My Yoga Practice

ultimate yogi 108 Banner

Be patient with everyone, but above all, with yourself. I mean, do not be disheartened by your imperfections, but always rise up with fresh courage. I am glad you make a fresh beginning daily. There is no better means of attainment to the spiritual life than by continually beginning again, and never thinking that we have done enough. How are we to be patient in dealing with our neighbor’s faults if we are impatient in dealing with our own. He who is fretted by his own failings will not correct them. All profitable correction comes from a calm and peaceful mind.

Saint Frances de Sales, via The Experience of Insight by Joseph Goldstein


The only part I would take issue with is “never thinking that we have done enough,” which seems to be the opposite of being kind to yourself. Sounds like good old Catholic/Baptist guilt to me, of which I’ve suffered plenty. Otherwise, I appreciate the sentiments.
