Quote of the Week- 11/18/11

Here's to embarking on a new project! Quote of the week! (Which hopefully won't turn into quote of the month, or quarter for that matter)
This blog has yet to show the Yoga aspect of the Yum, Yarn and Yoga. I'm hoping that the Quote of the Week can be an inspiration for people to practice yoga on and off of the mat!

This first quote is from Peace Pilgrim, who walked across America, with little more than clothing, a toothbrush, comb and pen, to spread the message of peace. I highly recommend reading the book about her life. An online copy of the book is available at http://www.peacepilgrim.org/book/index.htm, or a free copy can be requested at the below address, although I'm sure a donation would be appreciated.

"If only you could see the whole picture, if you knew the whole story, you would realize that no problem ever comes to you that does not have a purpose in your life, that cannot contribute to your inner growth. When you perceive this, you will recognize that problems are opportunities in disguise. If you did not face problems, you would just drift through life. It is through solving problems in accordance with the highest light we have that inner growth is attained."

Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Works in Her Own Words - Pg. 9-10
