What do you love?

...
What is it that you love?
How did you find it? How do you remember it?
And have you allowed yourself to love what you love?

"Meditation helps you discover what you love that you didn't know you loved because you were so caught up in your mind that you didn't realize there was anything else there. The value of meditation is that it helps you first discover -- and then bring yourself back to -- what you love."
 (Geneen Roth, Women Food and God)

What I love. Reading these words, I'm reminded that it's not about the meditation and yoga practices themselves so much as what the practices point toward. They are the tools for digging down and uncovering what is loved. Or zooming out into the vastness of what is loved. The vibrant intelligence of the body and bright wonder of being.
