Bittersweet



Human existence would be anxious if all we knew was the ephemeral, and monotonous if all we knew was the imperishable. But the Creator has graced us with a human nervous system, and gifted to us the arts of yoga, pranayama and meditation, so that we may cultivate a capacity to taste the changeable and changeless together. Beauty is bittersweet, the evanescence of eternity.
