When you say NO to something, you are automatically saying YES to something else. In Tantric yogic philosophy we start with YES. It is our first choice as we open to what the moment offers us. Then, after taking a moment to reflect, we can say NO as a boundary to what is not life enhancing.
We embrace the universal truth that YES is active! As Paulo Coelho writes in The Alchemist, “There is only one way to learn, it’s through action. Everything you need to know you have learned through your journey.”
