Art of SailingPosted: 03/29/2015
I have a habit of jotting down inspirational quotes for myself often, but I wanted to share this one that I found a while back.
It also relates to Meghan Currie’s latest time-lapse yoga video. I’ve already mentioned that I’m a huge fan of her work and find her to be an incredibly motivating force in my life. In this video she remains steady and graceful as a tropical storm forcefully passes by. I think you’ll enjoy this video as much as I do.
She also includes a beautiful Alan Watts quote with her video:
“Ecstasy is something higher, or further out, than ordinary pleasure… its achievement requires a particular discipline and skill that is comparable to the art of sailing. We do not resist the vibrations, pulses, and rhythms of nature, just as the yachtsman does not resist the wind. But he knows how to manage his sails and, therefore, can use the wind to go wherever he wishes. The art of life, as we see it, is navigation.” ~Alan Watts
