Don't wait until it's too late to grow up, lovingly.

I'm reading a great book at the moment about the benefits of yoga into our older years and I came across this beautiful quote from philosopher George Santayana when he wrote, "Spirit can enter a human being perhaps better in the quiet of old age and dwell there more undisturbed than in the turmoil of adventure." Ultimately, as physical abilities decrease with age, individuals ideally enter the stage in which they can begin to renounce other pursuits and devote themselves more fully to cultivating spiritual maturity, including profound peace of mind. - Jim Carson, PHD

So this got me thinking about my observations and personal experiences of the journey of yoga and how it relates to us through the changing decades of life.
