More Links from Around the Web, Including Some Amazing Wisdom from a Master Yogi, and a Lovely Bipolar Blog

Here it is, from Daily Cup of Yoga: Wake up. Practice yoga. Repeat. True, and true of so many things in life. Strip it down, set a single goal, and pursue it doggedly. Right now my primary goal is getting my finances in order, but over the long, long term, developing my yoga practice will have to be a big one if I hope to become a yoga instructor one day.

More about goal-setting later.

It’s worth checking out the very personal bipolar blog Dragon in the House — along with a good deal of wisdom, it features a variety of illustrations that demonstrate all too brilliantly the whirlpool of moods that characterize this illness. Wonderful work, and well worth your time.

On The Abundance Blog you will find a detailed review of The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science, a book that I’ve read and highly recommend. This book is an excellent antidote to the hope-killing notion that the brain is “hardwired.” Though the author does not address bipolar disorder in particular (he does feature a case study about depression), he makes an excellent case that our choices mold our brain as much or more than our brains dictate our choices. Excellent reading if you worry that your bipolar is an immutable fact of life.

I also downloaded the author’s free e-book on on 114 Ways to Celebrate Life — I’ll let you know how I like it in a future review.
