How does one keep their “Magic About Them” in a world turned hostile and chaotic? How do we maintain our “Lightness of Being” in a world where so many suffer? These are questions I ask myself every day.
One of the first things my teacher told me when I began my studies in Ayurveda & Yoga was to “Protect My Light”. I remember sitting there feeling confused as I mentally scrolled through what that might possibly look like. As I started to immerse in the ancient science of Ayurveda, I understood that to “protect my light” meant to protect my Tejas.
Who has a lot of Tejas? Have you ever noticed the awesome power of a Black Panther or a Jaguar moving with such perfect synchronicity that they have a GLOW and “Je ne said quoi”. “Je ne said quoi” is French for an inexpressible something, that special something.
