What Steve Jobs + Yoga Taught Me About Living


Steve Jobs so inspired me, helping shape my perspective about life on many levels -- beauty & technology and faith & courage. For years, I’ve carried one of his quotes:

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Considering Steve’s words this morning, I see a formula:

                follow your heart + intuition x courage = freedom

Courage is a quiet cousin of faith, Judith Lasater writes in Living Your Yoga, Finding the Spiritual in Everyday Life. Have faith that:

When you act from true courage, the people, the tools, and your own inner knowing needed for the heroine’s journey will be available to you.

The point is to choose to do what is possible in the face of fear. That defines courage. And with it comes a sense of freedom.

Today I encourage you to take one small step into the unknown. Be unafraid. Freedom awaits, I promise.
