The tree pose in hatha yoga is an asana (posture) that holds a special place in my heart. It requires simultaneously looking out into the world (being in the world) to maintain balance and a deep inward focus (connecting to breath, being present). Both In and Out serve to connect us to the Divine...and to living the Torah that is our life experience.
This photo is a reflection of trees superimposed on the rolled up yoga mats (kind of like a Torah scroll)in the trunk of my car. A photographic moment I noticed only because I was present enough to pay attention to what was both inside and outside of my car...one vehicle that takes me where I need to go on my spiritual journey!
