This poem found me on facebook the other day, and completely applies to the concept in our asana playground of creating space, a clearing, so that we can move into that space and remain fully present. It also poignantly applies to my feelings when inundated with so many tragic events close to home. I've used in my classes this week.
Do not try to save the world or do anything grandiose
Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hand and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know how to give yourself to this world so worth the rescue.
