Actually, it is very helpful to look outside and dream. I did a lot of it growing up. I still do. But now I make sure that I look inside as much if not more often. I listen to Dharma talk as much as I listen to NPR. Buddhist teachings help me relate to external things internally. If I see a misery out there I need to recognize it inside my heart...

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: You will NOT be happy when you lose 10 pounds, or have a different job or a drive better car, when you meet the “right” person, or when “things calm down”. You will not be happy when your biceps or bank account or boobs are bigger, or when your waistline is smaller...
Editor's Note: There is more to yoga than asana (poses). Many believe it's just a physical workout that's good for your body. Yoga is so much more. Part of the yoga practice is working hard to follow the yamas (moral codes) and niyamas (observances). One of the yamas to practice is non-attachment. Not being attached to outcomes, moments, sad times, happiness, expectations and so on. Living in the present moment and the now and not getting bogged down on how you wish things were or how you'd like them to stay. The author of this piece does a nice job of providing real life examples of this. Enjoy!

Editor's Note: In this short video, surfer and yoga teacher Eoin Finn, gives a beautiful metaphor about surfing the waves as being similar to going through life. He tells how living this way ultimately guided him to where he is now (a yoga teacher and more).

After morning yoga I walk to my car, conscious of every step. I look down at the muddy path, my clogs stepping firmly, yet gently, on the soft ground, knowing that the moment is precious and feeling the interconnection of breath and step. The rain falls discretely on my curls, and the scent of lavender rising from my wet hair awakens me even more...
