A year of gratitude – Week 9 – A quote that resonates

This week’s post in the gratitude challenge is a quote that resonates.

Today I would like to leave you with the following excerpt from Meditations from the Mat by Rolf Gates and Katrina Kenison.

A spiritual practice is one that brings us full circle – not to a new self but, rather, back to the essence of our true selves. Yoga is the practice of celebrating what is. At the end of the hero’s journey, he finds that he did not need to go anywhere, that all he sought was inside him all along. Dorothy, having traveled across time and space to the land of Oz, and having struggled desperately to find her way back to Kansas, discovers that she could have gone home at any time. In the end, she learns that her adventures have simply brought her to the point where she can believe this. It is the aim of all spiritual seeking to bring us home, home to the understanding that we already have everything we need.

This week has been one of doubt and self-reflection. Is there something in the air? Is it just me?
