Great read from Tim Miller on the ninth limb of yoga

You should just dive in fully to Tim Miller’s latest blog post — click on through right here. A little tease:

Aside from all the advantages in the material realm that a smart and savvy partner can provide, is the great opportunity for personal growth that marriage offers.  It is the single greatest and most challenging relationship to learn about one’s self through our interactions with our spouse, who mirrors our behavior back to us like no one else.  I like to think of marriage as the ninth limb of yoga.  With the other limbs of yoga we can cultivate strength, flexibility, open minds and hearts, equanimity, patience, and detachment—then we’re ready to take on the ninth limb.

I’ve left all the good parts for you to go find.
