… to take the photograph of a breath. So I filled up the tub and let myself sink leaving only my right hand above the water holding my camera. And, as always, so far, in my life, I pulled myself up… in the air and let it all flood my whole body.
” We only have to read the words of people recovering from addictions to see that behind the trappings of disease lies a mystical yearning that is as authentic and urgent as that of any pilgrim. Somewhere underneath bingeing, starving, exercising, drinking, hallucinating, climaxing, and purchasing, we are desperately seeking a way home to our self. The longer we have been in exile from this true self, the more desperate the yearning and, often, the more desperate the means of attaining pleasure.” – Bringing Yoga to Life, Donna Farhi.
You are what you deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny. – Brihadarankyaka Upanishad 4.5
