new one, hello

trip lightly into life

Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.

Catching the Brass Ring’ seems to be an old idiom from the 19th century
– without clear provenance: meaning to strive for the highest prize.
However, when I was a child if you were on the outside jumper (maybe a
horse on a carousel) you could stretch to reach metal rings.
If you caught the brass ring you earned a free ride on the carousel.

line/syllable count; tau ku : 1/6, 2/2, 3/8 and or pi ku: 1/3, 2/1, 3/4
are my interpretations of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

Possession or thought
Release the weights that
Bind

be free to love

resolve to gain, maintain
living

Accept Limitations
(especially your own)

Begrudge,
Assume nothing
Seeking answers comes
When you actually ask
Questions

if you don’t want to know
then stop
whining; gift honest intentions
